Hey Fred-

Your dad told me about how they changed the rules, and that there were some A's and B's racing in that last race of yours...at least if I understood him correctly, which can be a challenge, and you still managed to come in 62 out of 140... that's really quite good... think of how you would have done if they hadn't had the A's and the B's racing alongside you.

Being more familiar with the new boat and getting some more practice in will help... From what I heard, you really didn't have much practice time in on the new Zeigelmeyer opti... so that may have been part of the problem too.

Now you're in the B's and I am sure you'll do just fine...especially with the new radial sails on your new boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
