Daily Report, January 31, 1999
Today was a great day within AmericaOne. In the morning, we did some proprietary AmericaOne deck layout work. This was really good to see. You could see the past experience of our guys coming out, allowing us to develop a boat that will be more functional and easier to sail. Exercises like this show how good of group we have at AmericaOne.
The afternoon consisted of some match racing. Paul, John, Carter, Sean, Morgan Trubovich, and Curtis raced against myself, Morgan Larson, Moose, Josh, Rolphy, and Billy. The racing was close but Paul's team was a little crisper and executed the moves just a little better. Reinforcing that you need to have the complete package to win at match racing. While we did a good job of pushing them, we could not put together a complete race. Either way, each race was good and the learning curve continues to go up!
Cheers, Terry Hutchinson
