i agree. it's a shame we will not hear any race reports from him on this regatta. his overall finish was not great, but he did start and finish every race. he did beat boats in every race, and he had a finish in the forties. no dsq's or penalties. not bad, considering his schedule just before this regatta. hopefully, he will take away from this experience what he needs to do to post top ten finishes: practice, more big fleet regattas, weight training, and more practice. 2 years from now when he's done school he will have the time and lack of distractions to put his dream to the test.
