Well done, Fred. Your dad told me on the telephone from where he is working. He seems to think that the windvane he installed helped you win. I think it's just your skill.

Well done Fred... just don't let that guy in the sunglasses (second and third photos) on your boat...he tends to break equipment...

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.
