SMOOTH SAILING: In Aspen, Carolyn Sackariason reported Aspen Skiing Co. is partnering with London resident Tony Lawson to "put the Aspen/Snowmass brand and logo on the spinnaker of the newly built Concise 8, his 40-foot racing boat that will launch from France next month and land in Brazil approximately 30 days later in the 5,500-mile Transat Jacques Vabre race." It is "considered the second most famous transworld race on the globe."
