Home Safe and Sound and back to the grindstone.  There’s deviation cards to complete, sails to develop and fall training plans to make…the work never ends :-)

There were two divisions each in the JAM fleet and the Spin Fleet for the Omnium Champlain Regatta, with the JAM boats heavily outweighing the SPIN boats in numbers.  Saturday we had two Olympic course races on the JAM course and Sunday saw one nice long 16 mile race for each fleet.  Etoile D’Argent finished 4, 1, 1, giving us 1st in C division, and 1st overall in the JAM fleet!  We had a great team of wonderful people on the boat who were there to have fun, work hard and learn along the way.  What an awesome bunch!  Thanks for the great weekend!!
