The new boat looks like a lot of fun. Notice those very deep reefs in the main sail and foresail. Fast, shallow, seaworthy.

Julie and I have been talking about rowing lately because we are training for an upcoming Watertribe event which could involve many hours of rowing, depending on the wind conditions. To help with our training, we bought a used Concept 2 rowing machine.

We like the full body workout that the rowing machine gives us and even if we don't do the race it was a good purchase. This morning we went out for a short row to see how our training has helped.
