Fred - here are some stories...

The day before the regatta started the beaches in Palm Beach were closed due to sightings of large schools of sharks. See CBS news report: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2005/03/31/earlyshow/main684288.shtml It brought back memories of the 1999 Midwinturds in St. Pete. - but on a completely different scale.

No one was attacked this past weekend! There were numerous dolphin sightings and large schools of flying fish. Having never been to Palm Beach before, I was amazed by how beautiful and clear the ocean water was.

The only other breaking news was that a poor cat got himself locked all day in Karen Long's van on Saturday. Both recovered nicely.
