Congratulations to Mike
We had a great time in Bakersfield, Mike had a great weekend winning 4 of 6 heats. His STV was great in the corners, I would know as I followed him around more than I would like to admit. Kudo's to Mike, if this was his first honest race in a boat, I think it might be in the genes.
I had some practice time, got a chance to try out some different props and do my imitation of Johny Soares, He panned it though, said in order to be a really good imitation I should have never trimmed it down. Eventually, I found a prop that I could get around the corners and found some redemption in the last heat. Hats off to Mike though, he was the man to beat in Bakersfield.
