There was a quiet fellow milling about the pits, taking pictures. Not unusual, but then he ambled out to the starting line where he offered to start us. He did a fine job, and then there he was again near the bottom of the course, photographing again. He put together an amazing video for us, standing at a near ideal spot: https://youtu.be/QaliYBfF0lA
He is Herb Crosby, Professor of Mechanical Engineering, UMO. There’s an iceboat out there somewhere with his name on it!
