    Feedback from the site is a good turnout. Saturday is the National Championships, Sunday the World Championships.

    Bet there is a lot of people hoping they don't break on Saturday....

    53 boats is the unofficial count.
    Yesterday completed the National Points for the season championships.
    1/2 of yesterdays finish points will count for the World Championship. The other half will be from today's races. So, should have been no sandbagging, but back to back races makes it tough, especially for those who do not live in the area.

    Yeah, there's nothing. The guys are calling when they have a minute but they are all busy racing. Simmons said they had him breaking out with the 4 boat 6 times on Saturday. That is really odd because we've never broken out once in that boat the last three years. He was 6th out of 7 in SVL.
