Race 5 management

It’s all go for the race committee… The race management run sheet is now at 54 and counting items. As the saying goes. It’s not easy being green. It’s funny how it becomes no speaks time in the tower during the division race starts.

Overseeing the race from the on water perspective we’ll have our Assoc Sec, Colin Orchard on hand.
