I have just sailed the first two days as tactician on the TP 52 Flash. We won the day in our class today with a 3, 1 which puts us in second place overall in IRC A. Vincitore with Chris Dickson steering got a 2, 4 today and is in first overall by 3 points in our class. Samba Pa Ti, our Trans Pac rival, is in 3rd in our class.

I am flying to Spain tonight to join the crew of Artemis for the last event in the Audi Med Cup circuit. This event is going to be raced in Cartagena Spain the original port of the Spanish fleet.

It was a lot of fun for me to race in the Rolex Big Boat Series in my home town. I rarely get to sail in this event as I am usually in Europe at this time of year. I love to sail on the bay. It is still the best sailing stadium in the world!! Bar none!

So good luck to my Flash teammates for the remaining 3 races.

I will start writing from Cartagena in a few days.
