After racing yesterday, I was given the honor of speaking on the post-race panel discussion on the weather. I felt a little outdone by the other two panelists, Peter Isler and Chris Larson, but the discussion leader, Ken Legler, had convinced me not to be intimidated by these pros. So, after racing I grabbed a quick shower, and got a ride down to Kelly’s, the regatta headquarters and party central. Despite a low turnout initially, the crowd slowly filed in as we began the discussion. Rather than being overwhelmed amongst the big names, I was delighted to share what happened for us on the water and hear the similar realities from the other courses.
