I cant speak for the rest of Division 3 but in my case it was a choice in going to Mississippi and taking my Son Jordan and Kat Porter to the Youth North Americans in June or the Hobie 20 in Florida in November. I have used the budget and the vacation time for the youth North Americans this year.
Besides, I am definitely not one of the top 20 sailors in the division and would have to pull Jordan out of school and hockey.
Mikey and Fey are making the trip and they just pulled a third in the Turkey regatta last weekend in Monterey (11 boats).
Jeremy, thanks for the picture of Jordan and Pat that made the latest Hotline cover.
