Micro Chip Woes (and Happy Easter)

Happy Easter weekend all! And just in case you were wondering, Skandia (the Brisbane to Gladstone race record holder) was leading Gladstone fleet in the 8th annual Easter classic on Moreton Bay. But news flash, a small micro chip in her computer controlled canting keel malfunctioned as she was reaching past Mooloolaba at 12 knots in a building easterly wind. Amazingly she was forced to drop out. Damn this newfangled technology.
