Did the US think it wise to send two viper sailors who possibly have had not much international experience. Not much cross class multihull sailing at such an important decision making process? It may have been wiser to send a more experienced international sailors.
Just a thought but too late now.
I think you know not what you speak/type. I don't know about Matthew but I DO know Sarah has plenty of other boat experience, (Tornado and H-16 as well as F-16 and F-18) and lots of it.

The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea
If a man is to be obsessed by something.... I suppose a boat is as good as anything... perhaps a bit better than most.
