Well it has certainly been busy these past few weeks for the members of Team USA45 Racing! The gang is stoked to be getting back together in San Francisco this upcoming weekend (May 9-12), so pictures and up-dates will soon follow! But here’s what we missed to catch you up to speed on:
- Charlie Buckingham placed 20th at the ISAF Sailing World Cup event in Hyeres, France. For the full low-down from Charlie on his latest regatta head over to his website.
- Graham Landy wins A-Division in the ICSA Western Semi-Finals to lead the Yale Bulldogs into the overall victory and a berth in the Gill Co-Ed Dinghy National Championship. Then, this past weekend Graham and Yale qualified for the APS Team Race National Championship.

- Congratulations to Peter Kinney for graduating from Redlands University! He is anxious to get back in the AC45 this upcoming weekend.
