So this has been out for a couple of days now but, rohan is not going to defend his title....
wonder if Scott B. would like to have a BR back now since he does not have to race against Rohan in one. My dear friend Alan Block has decided to put a target on my back from many months out, guess that will be a little more motivation to make sure I do not embarass my self.

If I had any regular readers I am sure the two month lack of posting helped cure that problem. I cant believe that it has been two months since I was in Melbourne. Feels like I am just starting to stop moving. Where to begin....
Austrailian Moth Nationals
Nothing besides awesome can describe this event in my mind. We raced in a little dust bowl of a town. The wind was not the greatest but the experience of actually racing a moth has spoiled me for life. I don't think I can ever go back now. Finished 3rd out of 30 blew a lot of leads but I think I was well past the point of burn out by the time we started racing. I learned in my olympic sailing days that 3 weeks away from home is about all that I can stand. After that my mental health starts to decrease quickly...
Key West Race Week
After flying 21 hours back from Aus I had a couple days back in the midwest before I had to get on the road again for another two weeks. Landed in miami picked up the Melges and worked all night on it before picking up the rest of the crew and pulling the boat down to KW. KW was a total sh*t fight. If I was burned out after Australia KW was grinding me into the dirt. We finished 9th was not bad but definitely not a performance that I was really proud of.
Now I am back in the frozen land, hope this place thaws out soon.
