    I have spent the last 3-4 years working on this JWOC, first with the base maps for all the areas, and during the last year I’ve been setting courses for one of the public races (SG4).

    The isolation between the various groups involved has been solid enough that I still don’t know exactly where all the races will take place, but I am really looking forward to the next week!

    Along with spectating I will also run the rest of the public races. :-)
