Division Assignments

Well, here are the assignments for Division "C" and "D". It sure seems like the assignments were a bit arbitrary, at least for Sweet Okole. I think we align better with the boats in Division "C". As it stands now our finish within Division "D" will be feast or famine: light to moderate winds (10 - 15 knots) and we should do well - strong winds (15 - 25 knots) where all the sport boats can plane and we'll have a tough time - if it is really windy (25 +) SO will light up and the sportboats will lose their advantage. But the bottom line is if we are going to win first overall, we'll need to beat all these boats regardless of division assignments.
