Shore Team Member Mike Eldred is a composites and deck hardware expert. Another member of the San Diego-based Fitzgerald Racing team, Eldred stayed in California when the sailing crew went to Auckland last winter to support the one-third scale sailing program and oversee the Fitzgerald Racing shop. Eldred also has his own company and shop, ME Composites. He fabricates high-tech instrument wands that go on mastheads. He and Fitzgerald also install kelp-cutter systems on many sleds and maxis.
