Fred's sailing team

Fred and his team are doing pretty good.

Here is the story from Alex.

Fred's team are the Champions of Portugal!!!! (the infantiles) it's the team that scores not the individual sailor, however the points gotten by the sailors make the team win or lose. More sailors score good the better the team does.

Fred did 18th Overall in last weeks 6 races for the Regional Championship (only score from 5 races count), but together with his buddies, the CNL became the Champion...HE is extremely proud and happy, as you can imagine..next wek he will get his new boat...I'll let him post those.

Fred's classification on the 2 saturday races was LAST!!! He got disqualified on race 1 because he started late (not really his fault, as the comitee decided to race inspite of no wind, and when they announced the 5 minute shot, Fred had drifted to a distance more than 5 minutes from the start and did not start in time, remeber the comitee was setting the buoeys on a power boat!!!)..

RAce 2 affraid he would get to far from the start, stayed near the start, but accidentaly, due to no wind and strong current, hecrossed the start line before start and got disqualified on a jump start...Saturday he cried a lot...was a disgrace..2 last places..

BUT..Sunday...they did the remaining 4 races and Fred scored well enough on all 4 to get an 18th place...not bad at all...considering he lost 2 with max score..

Fred,
Too bad about the first two races, sometimes that happens. Having met you I can understand your frustation as I know you want to do your very best. It's okay to vent, but don't let it get in the way of succedeing next time.

Nationals is next, get some. I'm looking forward to reading about you at the next Olympics just so I can say 'I know that guy'.

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.
