The sour grapes is from the J24 class trying to Get the boat to BE THE OLYMPIC KEEL BOAT which would have taken the STAR out

Dennis is a STAR GOD so he was Not happy and we keep racing a 1937 keel boat

If you ever wonder why they race such stone age boats in the Olympics a lot of dirt fly's behind closed doors

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
