It is with my deepest sympathy that I would like to offer my personal condolences and the condolences of our entire OSS family. There is no consolation for the tragic loss for which you have suffered. Our heartfelt prayers go out to the families of Mohammad Al Mehairi and Jean-Marc Sanchez.

I recently spoke with a very nice gentleman in Key West at the SBI Championships.
He told me of a friend who died, doing what he loved best. Offshore Racing.
He went on to tell me, “When you win, that’s racing. When you lose, that’s racing. When you die, that’s racing.”
He showed no emotion, however I could tell he was deeply impacted by that event.
From what I have seen, all those involved are truly ardent to the sport, and possess a high degree of compassion and camaraderie.
One morning you share a joke or pleasant conversation with a friend and or competitor, that same afternoon, one of you may win, lose or possibly die, doing what you all love best… Maybe that would explain the character of these people who choose to compete.
Not to discount the spectators. We too understand the thrill, to some degree, and the risk, completely.
