Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Thanks for your excellent coverage of the tech behind the scenes. I watched all the racing over the weekend and I think they did an bangup job. It actually was more fun to watch than Nascar. If they can keep going in this direction AC racing may finally get some attention from the non-sailing crowd.

    The orange race buoys appear on the video as demarcation buoys for the spectator fleet… wishin I was there!
