Theoret clocks 159 then heads to beach

Jean Theoret got out on the water twice Friday, clocking a 159.145 for fourth-fastest time of the day. Then he and his team spent the rest of the day dry-docked, which was fine with them.

"We're happy," Theoret said. "We have to save the equipment."

Theoret likes this fast course.

"The water was OK today," he said. "There were a few rollers. I think it will be a fast race this weekend. God willing, if the weather holds up."

Everyone on the beach is a little gun-shy after the windy Detroit weather two weeks ago.
