Yep, congratulations on a successful event. Sadly in some quarters the event brought out the a very sad over reaction. Hopefully the doom sayers will acknowledge that their fears were unfounded and might even welcome future similar events.

It would be nice if we had some sort of unbiased after-event report, just to let us know how the swimmers coped with the boats and vice versa.
