How can you not agree with him?
Rich is right you need the persona, image, and walk before you run. Can this be a re-birth? I hope so, if I could afford to race again, it would not be the "offshore" that is run today.
I rather try and set records running alone then race in the river with a 40' boat, that's why I went to see Bermuda leave the dock, it's the adventure not bringing home a trophy because your one of 2 boats in your class.
