When we started Sail-World last century, we thought, ohhh it will be busy in the Summer.. fools us. Heading for Keppel Bay now for the finish of that race, before Airlie, Hamilton and Magnetic and yes there is some other stuff on too. The AC45's, Olympic test event & the Clipper.

As I write this the sum is low in the sky after another glorious September day, 10 in a row so far... a few weeks ago it was 100 knots on Lake Michigan ...the world is upside down.

See you on the water..
