Appeal to race in Division C successful

Whether it was our appeal to the PCYC (Pacific Cup Yacht Club) to race in Division C or the PCYC determined we were incorrectly put in Division D on their own, the good news is Sweet Okole is in the right division now. We will have nearly boat for boat racing with the 2 J-35s and the Express 37. And all boats in Division C are conventional designs (unlike the sportboats in Division D). It won't be any easier to win in Division C, but it will be a much fairer test of sailing skill.

Other new developments are our start date has been moved up a day to July 15th, time TBD.

And today Pam and Dean met with the Pac Cup Safety Inspector and passed the the Safety Inspection with flying colors.
