Probably also has to do with the events being held at better locations for wind.

Pletch may have lost his mojo... But where is Ward Young this year? After a second at last years nationals, one would think he wanted to chase the trophy.

That's a bold statement Craig.
I have always liked racing the boats. It just seemed as though interest was fading in the fleet racing aspect and shifting more towards the team racing. Good to see such a stacked entry list at the event. I wish I could make it out.

the fleet has always had ups and downs. i think it makes a difference when the bigger regattas are held at times and places where the best can actually make it

Anyone have room in their tent? Also, anyone driving down from Boston?

So is V15 fleet racing making a comeback? I didn't think anyone was into that anymore.

Don't you worry about my toboggan. you'll have to wait and see next week. Anyone getting there early? I'm comin up with Mikey Brown on Thurs.

Wow chuck, is that a semi you've got for le dans?

Also, will you have meat in your toboggan this year?

I doubt Danny will ever lose his mojo so long as there is a beer boat nearby with a fresh stock. Lookin forward to this year's nats

Highlights from the V-15 New Englands this past weekend.

John Baxter rafted the finish boat with no other boats around him. To correct himself he spun a 720 then finished.
