Thanks to Gary

Well I just spent from 10:30pm to 3:30am doing what Gary has done for the past 10 days.
This is a hard job.
My browser shut down twice right at the start of the women's race.
I am not a touch typer so trying to type and watch the race at the same time is like trying to text while walking down a New York City street.
My hat is off to you Gary.
Thanks for the opportunity to do this. I really had a great time and hope that you spectators out there enjoyed the commentary.

Welcome to my Windsurfer Blog

Pictured above is the Italian RS:X Windsurfer racer Alessandra Sensini, the overall women's winner of the 2008 World Championships held in Takapuna, New Zealand. Getting air in an Olympic class in such mellow conditions is one of the things that makes Olympic Windsurfing the most dynamic of the Olympic sailing classes.

I will try to make the most of the opportunity in the next 24 hours to explain windsurfing to the masses and to make the case for certain political changes within the sport that are necessary for it to grow in the United States.
