From the Winter Snipe Bulletin

Q:The Pan Ams fleet was small – only 10 boats. How tough is sailing in this 10 boat fleet compared to the 80 boat fleet at the Worlds?

The two championships were very different, so the strategies were different due to the number of boats. In Denmark, we have to be more conservative, in Mexico, more agressive.
