Every year at this time I get to begin preparing for our annual TOC event. Its my favorite due to the fact that its a 2 day event with 3 official days of practice. To me this requires much more prep then a one day team event. Perhaps it should be the same but to me its not. I begin this process by completely emptying the boat, I mean everything that is not attached comes out. This is a great time to clean and vacuum the boat as well. A good cleaning followed by some wax goes a long ways.
