The days are longer, the water is warmer, and the boats are going in the lake. Sailboat racing season is here! Yours truly will be vigorously pursuing first place finishes three or four times a week until Labor Day. I’ll be racing my Laser on Thursday mornings. I hope to prove to my grandson Oliver that experience and treachery will defeat youth and skill every time! Tuesday and Friday evenings and most weekends the intrepid crew of our 33 foot Frers racing sloop, Valkyrie, will be making me look like the helmsman I’ve always hoped to be! They do the work, I get credit for the victories! What a life!
