78 boats and most of the usual suspects. I like seeing Lawrie Smith sailing the Dragoni. Markus. Hoj-Jensen. Lars. Good sailors.
SEVEN boats from OZ, which is pretty amazing when you think of it. Only one boat each from Ireland, Denmark and Finland is a bit of a surprise. I am also surprised that American Ted Sawyer isn't sailing, but the word was he was retiring this year (even though he has sailed in a few events on the Med).
As usual, I will keep you updated. Today was the practice race day, and they haven't listed finishes. Starts in earnest tomorrow.
