With friends like you multihull enthusiasts don't need enemies.
Thank you for an excellent article on the world multihull sailboat championships, held on western Long Island Sound. Hugh Whall's expression of the general tempo of the event showed great insight. His account of Wildwind's unique performance, speed and design is most appreciated.
However, he failed to mention my partner and Wildwind's Co-owner-Skipper Norman Riise (expert in epoxy plastics, without whom Wildwind could not be maintained in championship condition) and crew members Jay Johnson and Chuck Gardener. Without these three, nothing!
Incidentally, we sincerely expect there will be a second world multihull championship next year, despite the drubbing from the weather everyone took this year.
