    Four lucky mids on the offshore sailing team with GPA's high enough to miss a week of class are racing aboard the S/V Wizard from Ft. Lauderdale to Key West starting today at 1300. You can track the race here.

    Well, we broke our headfoil before the start in 28 knots of wind.....unfortunately thats the way it can go with these high tech machines.

    Bummer - a reach to Key West in 20+ knots would have been quite a sled ride on that machine.
