The Conanicut Yacht club has run this race 93 times now. It is, for me one of the fun events in Narragansett Bay. Windward, Leeward courses are frankly a chore. The SW breeze filled nicely and made it all the more enjoyable.
I am surprised, pleasantly surprised that the people attending Davos are even aware of the problem. From there I wonder about Chris Christie, and then Vladimir Putin. Will their egos be their downfall.? I am not comparing the two, simply that in each case they seem to be oblivious of the plight of others.

Bill Gates announced at the World economic forum that by 2035 there would be no more poor countries.

I thought people would recognize the futility of war and what transpires? More wars in the world than ever before.
