My son sails 29er in GKSS, the club that runs many of the big competitions in Marstrand, and GKSS was somehow involved in the RC44 tour visiting in june. They invite youngsters to join for one race in every stop over so the GKSS (Gothenbourg Royal Sailing Club) 29er team got the offer. Joel, my son, got the place in Synergi from Russia, with Ed Baird as tactician, and got to grind up the main before the start and sit at the back of the boat for a complete race. What an experience
