Re: Come & race in Paradise
I will try to tell somemone I know who was in Nouméa with his boat last year, and who may be able to get back there again in time. This sounds a lot like the 'Round Admiralty Island Race that the Juneau Yacht Club runs each year, and which my brother keeps asking me to crew on. Sounds like either race could be fun. Eclipse will not be heading to either, however. They're a bit far and there are interesting races closer by already. Bon vent!

My friend has moved on to New Zealand at this point. Don't think he's heading back to Nouméa in time for the race. Sounds like it should be a good time.
