World Contest - Open Class by Jonathan St. Cloud
Was looking over the entry sheet for WGC 2017. The open class seem dominated by 21 meter ships. Only two 23 meters (new generation open class) and four EB29. Nary a Nimbus 4 or ASW-22. Shame these beautifully ladies of the sky are not competitive with even the 21 meter birds. There is nothing...
