Dad loses boom. Son wins regatta.

I hope that's not some sort of sign.

Congratulations, lad. Many of us envy you.

Nice work! Winning is good. It looks like you had some pretty good wind too.

Bueno...makes up for breaking the boom just a bit... and shows what a good sailor you are... now, if you could just teach your dad how to sail a boat and not break it.

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.

Hi Fred. Congratulations for winning the race. Today I am at the firehouse with my Pop.



and my Pop's firehouse has been in San Francisco for a long time. But he has only been at this house for a little bit.

When I was with my Pop I was throwing my plane that I built, it was number 55 and it was on the back wing on the top.



Its name was jetstream, it said it on the wings.

Good luck on your race next weekend. I am going to learn how to swim, so I can go sailing on my Pop's boat, Moondance.
I like your boat and all the pictures.
Bye Fred,
Max

Winning definitely makes it more fun... not that any time sailing isn't fun... but winning makes it more fun..
