MoJoe Update

A Bermuda update sent in from Andy MacInnis, who handles the foredeck for MoJoe:

"Imagine the Halifax race with heat and less sleep. The Gulf Stream was two sleepless nights of short, steep chop and high winds. Add another day of pounding on longer waves after that, and you get the idea. Several rain squalls that were so strong they flattened the rough edges off of the waves. Wet, sleep deprived, hungry, almost seasick, and we finished DFL in our class. But, I can't wait for the next one. The island itself makes up for any discomfort on the race. The beaches are amazing. So much history there, too."

Congrats on finishing, Andy -- a couple more seasons with the boat and she'll be blowing away the pack in 2010.
