Congrats to Nathan on the win. I wish I was there. Lots of stories to be told, I'm sure (for example, what happened to Dylan???) but the medium had undergone a sea change.
As witnessed by the most recent blogroll
on the International Moth home page, the blogging among mothists is just about dead. Hmmmm....no posts about the worlds....what's up with that?
On the other hand, the Facebook page
for the worlds has had lots of action. I suppose Facebook is a social blog, but I'm afraid the concept of individual blogging has past its prime.
The twitterverse has adequately covered the event on its site
but I think the best overview came for the Yachts and Yachting
coverage, even if it did neglect most of the fleet (70 of the 140 entries were in the silver fleet and it was a while before any mention of the back half was made.....)
I thought the Beau Outteridge Production pieces were okay, but their sailor profiles
left a lot to be desired when compared to the extended interviews
from Motterfeiber back in 2009.
So where do I go from here? Next week Susan and I will attempt to get her flying in Aftermath down on the Chowan River in North Carolina. I hope to race the boat at this year's classic moth nationals in September.
Stay tuned for occasional reports.
