    At first, I thought you meant he was taking that little, tiny girl on the race! I’m relieved to hear she’s 16 and I’m sure an experienced sailor–what an adventure!

      Kerry – that little girl is now all grown up and very determined. Our weather has changed, they started this morning in the rain. In Victoria harbor this evening, we will see them off from here.
