Doug and I went to Fort Worth Boat Club for the third Laser circuit stop. Laser attendance has been down in the circuit this year so we didn't know what to expect. It turned out to be an excellent event.

Our PRO, Alex, was a junior from the Opti fleet and his Dad sailed in the event. There were other father/son teams out and some very good sailors that were sailing a Laser for the first time or for the first time in quite some time. Everyone was welcome and we were all challenged by the sailing. It was one of my favorite events this year and FWBC really gave us the VIP treatment. One young sailor, Colin, kept Doug on his toes the whole weekend and it was quite entertaining to watch Doug use every ounce of his experience to stay on top of this very talented sailor. And just like we find in the Butterfly fleet, experience usually wins.

The weekend was topped off when Doug and I jumped on a J/80, Yoko, to race in their regular Sunday races. We'll be going back.
