Hi Fred. I'm proud of you for your response to your Dad the other day when they counted those races you did not sail in. Here in the US we would say you have "class". Any more races this weekend?

Fred, you did a great job--stay away from the 'politics' and keep on sailing like the wind---Everyone here loves to hear the stories of your races--- We think you are #1 !!!! (It was also very nice to let those kids who never win taste victory, even if it wasn't exactly fair--) Keep up the good work!!!

Fred...I wrote your dad that it is good that you understand that life is not always fair and especially in sports....you don't always get the right decision from the refs...and sometimes cheaters win.
But one thing is for sure...if you work hard, and have some talent and have the heart of a competitor...you will bring home many more trophies than the cheaters do.
You have the right spirit!

Hi Fred!



Hope you are doing good! We miss you guys! I wish we were still there...Joel's really boring me arleady!

I just found out that my friend Erin learned to sail on Opti's. We showed her your video clips and she said that you were much better than she was!

After showing her how beautiful Portugal is, she is now planning a trip.

Have fun sailing!
