Summer time down in Argentina is beyond hot! Some measures had to be taken to make sure the heat was not a factor during races. The trip to Carrefour, a Walmart equivalent in South America and Europe was filled with coolers, umbrellas and lot of ice! Our umbrellas even said “78 Sailing Team” the year our coach, Dave Ullman won his second World Title. We took it as an omen for what was to come!
