Transparent Boat.

     Mexorc 2014
Sometimes it sucks to work alone. I could not make it to this Sombrero and Margarita Fiesta.
The Mexorc is getting bigger and better and the sun is guaranteed. The racing, giving right after the usually slow 1000 miles from San-Diego to Puerto Vallarta, is a week affair with a couple of starts everyday but for a party on Wednesday.

Dick Carter Design. Memories.

- Last Saturday I had the pleasure of visiting Dick Carter, my boss at Carter Offshore for over 3 years.

-Guess what? We talked about boats and how things have changed. It was a memory lane with the main topic being over Rules guiding the Sport. I mean handicap rules. Let's not forget D. Carter started the I.O.R. The goal was to merge the American C.C. A  with the British R.O.R.C.

- I join this article in French about Dick Carter and his era. It gives a good account of the early days.

Grasse. Perfume Capital of the World.

At 600 M. above sea level, the views taken with the raising sun show straight across the mountains of Corsica. The town of Cannes is slightly down to the right. Bellow is the Ville de Grasse.
