Couple of New Articles (Campbell Sailing)

One new piece came out in Point Loma’s local newsreel about Graham’s mom Jerelyn and my mom Sherri: Enjoy Peninsula Beacon. ESPN The Magazine Online also published a piece about the US Sailing Team’s trip to the White House. Check ESPN.com?

Re: Couple of New Articles (Campbell Sailing)

Jerelyn Biehl and Sherri Campbell run One-Design Management, and they are the secretaries of the Laser Class and also put out the Laser Sailor. I knew that Jerelyn's son Graham was going to the Olympics as a 470 sailor. The light bulb hadn't come on that Andrew Campbell is Sherri's son! Congratulations, proud Moms. And good luck to your boys.

Bouncing Balls, Eights, Fours, and the Official Boat Draw (Campbell Sailing)

In the first official act of this year’s Olympic sailing regatta we had the boat and board draw yesterday morning in the administration building across the road from the athlete’s village. About ten o’clock the Laser, Radial and RSX sailors their representatives scampered out of the air conditioning of the athletes village, hit the wall [...]

I guess I don't follow... Laser Performance doesn't source their blades from PSA so I would not have expected to see the "flash" boards in China?

IIRC, one of the marketing points on the Aussie blade was the resistance to warping.
Being a high profile event in a very hot location, IMHO it seems like it might have been a good move for LP to go outside their normal supply chain to reduce the likelyhood of photos like the one on Andrew's site.

I can't understand why they aren't being made everywhere yet?

Well, I can say that in my personal experience at the Master Worlds I could not verify the claim of resistance to warping, as the one issued to me was definitely warped. And I don't think I was the only one.

Any Press is Good Press?? (Campbell Sailing)
