Join 3 or 4 members of my crew as we compete in the 4th race of the Ballard Cup II series. The race usually takes about 1 1/2 hours, depending on the wind. Bring finger food if you want to, but go easy. We probaly wont have time to eat during the race, and afterwards we will probably head back in to the dock.
