Valkyrie). I got to drive a good part of the race. Brad did take over for that mark rounding where Hey Gorgeous decided that giving a boat that outweighs you by several thousand pounds room at the mark is just a silly idea. We did not use our engine at all this week and had a great race (I only lost 3 boats after I took over driving). Everyone enjoyed the barbeque and Rose helped us bring the boat back to Shilshole afterwards. We again spent the night on the boat - it makes for an easy end to the evening. Friday morning, Brad got up for work while the boys and I had a fairly leisurely morning (not having to hike up the hill now that we are back up to 2 cars).
