I have to say that for the last decade or so, boating has been a more dominant influence in my lafe than racing. Through groups like OSO, I've gotten to know lots of great people on the water and in the industry. The basic nature of our shared pasttime is such that it attracts type-A personalities, which carries with the risk of some less-than-gracious people, but in general, Dianne and I have found our on-water friends to be of the very highest caliber. Great people make for great times. We're looking forward to more, but just need to make sure that people save their vacation days for summer weekdays. We'll sure as heck be out there!
