practice makes perfect

Screen Shot 2014-02-28 at 10.18.39 AM

We promised it to you…and not unexpectedly, the practice race for the 18 Foot Worlds found all the bugs in the live streaming system and shut the live stream down.  Our friends at 18 Footers TV promise us the first points-scoring race will go smoothly and we’ll have it right here.

In the meantime, the three “S” boys – Seve, Sammy, and Scotty – crushed it, with the new Gotta Love It Seven looking as strong as pre-race indicators and the form guide said, winning over UK challengers PICA by around a minute and a half.   The full report on the Invitation Race is here, and thanks to Michael Chittenden for the speed shot.  You can get updates from yesterday’s action via Facebook, enter the Pick-the-Podium competition here, and check this story for all the links.  If you’re having issues with any of it, get over to Twitter and send a message to @18Skiff and they’ll get it answered.  Tonight’s race coverage will start around 11:30 PM on the US East Coast; that’s 3:30 in the afternoon on Saturday in Oz.  Huh?
