Default Doha, Qatar Class 1 and Class 3 Pics

I am working in Bahrain, and took the day off to go to Qatar,
$116 roundtrip and a 30 minute flight each way! I arrived at
8:30 am, and had the Taxi drop me off by the Class 3 Dry pits. then caught a ride to the Class 1 Drypits. A big Thank you to Nigel Quilter for getting me, my access credentials.
It was good seeing U.S. Racers Gary Ballough and Dan Lawrence, as well as Jon Maas, who is the new Crew Chief for the Class 1 Jotun boat. the following pics are of the dry pits, morning practice session.





single outboards class didnt run just took the pic

They came in 5th, first time in the boat, and racing together for both crew. Class 3 has some top notch teams, and they are all hungry for a win. 20 teams battled it out!
