Mid to back of pack?

Besson has really been the guy to beat all along. Showing no mercy here as well.

Steph & Evan missed gold fleet by a tie break!? While that's tough to take, I'd say they have a lot to be proud of, seeing as they're new to the boat and started late in the cycle.

You can tell him, I'm sure there's nothing lower on his priority list right now. Let us know how that works out...

If I was to guess I'd say he's getting more speed out of the rig by sailing it in a fashion that is less/not forgiving of error, or possibly just not forgiving ...period. Such as lot's of downhaul and rotated back, downwind. Just a guess with no info to validate it, except personal experience.
How's that for a fvckin' PC disclaimer?
They're Hall spars now, not exactly a piece of crap.Everything has it's limits and JC isn't exactly the "throttle back" type.

I am gaining weight at an alarming rate... I blame it on not sailing anymore, and eating on a schedule.

Results for two silver fleet races are up. Not great for USA today. Steph/Evan ate an OCS, and plummeted to 11th. Mark M and JC stayed ashore.
