AUCKLAND, NZ - January 21, 1999 - Stay tuned to the AmericaOne website as we post reports from the team as they begin an intensive two-month training program in New Zealand. Straight from the top, here is Paul Cayard's report:
Daily Report, January 21, 1999
Another full day with A True. Toughest competition of the week between the two teams. We are both very fortunate to have each other. It is making our days something like 5 times more productive than they would be if each of us was on our own. Tomorrow is a work day and Saturday we are planning on having an in house Match Race Regatta. The kink in the plan could be the weather. A gale is forecast to start tomorrow and last through the weekend. Monday looks good but down here a four day forecast is pretty unreliable.
