and howe!

Some aerial perspective from Meredith Block showing Michigan’s own Carrie Howe en route to her  stomping of the F-18 North American Champs fleet with helmsman Mischa Heemskerk.  Carrie and Mischa are not alone – there are quite a few co-ed teams here, and quite a few girl helms as well, giving a great feel to the event and perhaps helping to explain the worldwide popularity of the F-18 fleet.  It certainly explains the success of the costume/blacklight/Magic marker party last night…

Our live video coverage of the F-18s just clocked over 44,000 views over a two-day period, so thanks for all of those who keep watching our somewhat primitive OTW coverage.  If the wind cooperates we’ll be out there again today, and you can stay updated and check out hundreds of great shots from a mess of different photogs in the Racing in Racine thread.  SurfCityCatamarans will be on his own tomorrow, so be sure to check in to see just what kind of talent he picks up to help him out.
