The Complete Center For Wooden Boats
The Center for Wooden Boats is exceeding any other program I have seen to develop sailors of all ages. From what I have seen perhaps one of these young sailors may one day sail as crew aboard the most prestigious of all Sailing Endeavours, the America's Cup.
The America's Cup
The America's Cup has evolved into a Strange Beast for sure. But where Money talks so does the limits of Technology in 2013. And I say if you can't Beat em, Join em! I loved watching the America's Cup and thank God for Youtube since we do not get NBC sports. I watched most of the races a few days late but so what, that is the gift of technology. By the time the final race I managed to run downstairs to a TV connected to Cable and watch Oracle Team USA Win. Computer Technology has forever changed our lives and being the optimistic person that I am I think it is great that we got to witness the fastest competitive sailing ever. The best part is all that technological development trickles down to the everyday sailor just interested in going out for a day sail or a Wednesday night Beer Can race. I just hope that one day the majority of crew representing the USA is actually US citizens. Larry Ellison used his Billions to recruit Aussie's, Kiwi's, French, English, and Dutch sailors to realize his dream. Good for Team Oracle but what about the USA?
