    They were improving over the regatta getting a 4th & 5th, obviously not used to the antiquated sailing equipment. They did lead at the fist mark in the last group race but dropped off the foils at the bottom mark, missed the layline. Just like my school reports........"could do better", "room for improvement", "needs to concentrate".
