Yes, it took a while for someone to see the error. My mind was wondering off to the beautiful sights of Brest, Fr.

Perfect. By not saying a thing, you saved the day. That whole mistaken identity thing can make you look like a real ass if you are dumb enough to run on at the mouth about it.

BTW, LOVE your music, man. To still be rockin' and wearing the makeup and the costumes at your age with the rest of the guys in Kiss is just amazing. Keep it up, Gene!

Yes the Genesee Yacht Club is a very friendly bunch, and we enjoy them when they visit NOLSC. They have a couple C&C 29's down there and they would be fun rides on Wed night racing. Maybe you could snag a ride for the Youngstown Levels as they campaign there the third weekend in July. Good luck.

Rgs,

It is actually consistent, just weird. The asymmetrical spinnaker boats are all in meters (70, 80, 120, ect...) and the symmetrical boats are in feet.
