FRED FINISHED 80th IN NATIONALS
Finally my suffering is over....
Fred made 63rd today in the last 3 races of the Optimist national Championship. With this result he finished the Championship with the "big boys" placing 80th of 100.
A shy result, but honourable, I obviously was expecting better, but....but considering he is one of the youngest, (I am not sure but the youngest best placed I believe), not to bad...
He was not sad with the result, he not only beat the 20 behind him, he beat the other 400 or so kids that never made it to the finals...he said he loved the gathering with all other kids, specially because he met many good looking girls, or so I was told....
Fred now ranks 80 in the class, I am very proud.
Next year he will do better for sure. Still no Sebastien Ziegelmeyer for him, as we agreed the boat would come with 50th or less. But he wants a new sail and mast. I will buy it.
Thanks to all who supported my son, I will ask him to come here and tell you guys about his feat and personally thank you.
