With the news of another of sport's greats, Lance Armstrong, being stripped of his Tour De France titles due to doping, it has brought to my attention that maybe the HCANA needs to make sure their playing field is level. Sure, we've got the one-design rule and crew minimum weights but I'm not convinced that's enough. It's too late to blood test the entrants at the 17 & 18 North Americans under way at this moment, but maybe the board of directors should look into blood testing over the coming off-season in the interest of keeping our sport clean and fair.
Do you suspect doping as a problem catamaran racing has? Doesn't sound necessary to me.
