I said this last year (and the year or 2 before), and didn’t get a chance, but I’m again going to do my best to meet up with this group for some races this year. it’s shaping up to be a pretty busy summer already, though!

for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
I admit it, I’m an engineer by day – and should know better about the physics involved here, but I still somehow didn’t see it coming. my brother-in-law thought it’d be fun to jump off the Sunfish as we were approaching the beach. seemed like a reasonable and fun idea to me – until the boat rocked backwards and dumped me off into the water as well!
