Hi Tuna,

I'm keen to speak at the America's Cup this year. Unsure if it would  
be with Mary or Monica at this stage - and haven't asked either of  
them yet. Shall I do that soon, or can I ask for a spot and pick a  
teammate at a date closer to the time? Quite understand if there are a  
lot of people keen this year.

Also, I meant to tell you that we had a minor emergency with Sarina in  
Brandeis that meant we had to let her head into Boston. She wasn't  
feeling well and felt it was best if she stayed with her folks instead  
of risking a long bus journey while feeling queasy.

That aside, the tournament went pretty well. Becca in 5th especially  
impressive. Their SF is online so I'm about to watch that to see if I  
can pick anything up.

Hope Europe's treating you well.

J
