Almost Ready to Go

T- minus four days until the launch of the 2011 US SAILING Summer Roadshow! Right now Brooke and I are holed up at US SAILING national HQ near Newport, Rhode Island, undergoing some intensive training and knowledge-absorption, and gearing up for our upcoming invasion of the east coast!

Newport is an incredible city. It seems like there is always something cool going on. Exhibit A: Wandering down to the waterfront yesterday, I realized I was looking at one of the world's largest sailing yachts, the 289-foot Maltese Falcon:

It was too big to even fit in the picture! The masts can be seen from every part of town. Also dominating the harbor is the imposing Fort Adams, which has a perfect view of everything coming and going around the bay (Which, I suppose, makes it an excellent spot for a fort...!)

With the help of the entire staff of US SAILING, and the people at Gill North America, Sperry Top-Sider, Bic Sports, and Toyota of Dartmouth, the pieces of our program are all coming together.

Get ready, east coast... the US SAILING Summer Roadshow is coming!
