The U-16 Elam Plus team said it's going to be testing some equipment here for the 2008 season during timing runs.

U-6 Oh Boy! Oberto drive Steve David said they've got new equipment they want to put in place for the 2008 season as well. "We're going to be even better next year," he said.

Still, nobody's looking past San Diego. Villwock said the problems they had in Seattle are behind them and they are ready to run at peak performance in San Diego. The boat just didn't seem to have the blazing speed its had all season at Seafair. "We had everything worked out before the final in Seattle," Villwock said.

"We really want to win here," said David.
