    CHI-MAC Race Wx

    Someone remind me why I'm doing this race - yet again?

    I for one can't offer any immediate answers or solutions - but being a local participant for well over 25 years (cough) and seen the changes we're all speaking of especially concerning Chicago's participation level - I'm glad this is being discussed openly yet again. It shouldn't be ignored. At AYC (Anchorage Yacht Club) they get close to 30 boats racing in Thursdays 'Race for Fun' series way up in Waukegan - if they can consistently get this many boats on a weeknight having a great time, explain the abysmal turnout at some of the Chicago level events. And they don't even have a place for a party afterwords. No physical club, no bar, no facilities, no blue blazers. Just a sailing club where they run their own races. Annually drop their own buoys. Keep it up though. The answers are out there somewhere...

    Agreed 12345, but it's still pretty damn exciting none the less for our city. Let alone for our local sailing community. Planning around the same time as the NOOD regatta however, might pose quite a few geographical problems for the RC of the NOOD's, if they proceed with using these same dates as chosen by the AC group. Spithill might have a few words over the black flys he'll be swatting while stuck waiting for thermal to develop in-between races. It is 'NOOD' weekend after all.

    I know a lot of clubs that could learn a great deal from how well SJRYC has thrown their Tri-State parties. Food is good, and service always comes with a smile. Very nice people, and worth every penny. However, a cover-charge would kinda suck as it's never been in place before. No cover makes getting in and out a lot easier and less hassle. But I'll be there regardless anyway.

    It's not like they watched movies stag flics and consumed single malt scotch on the Mac race.... Edited for accuracy.

    ...that's the one we saw half dead, mostly sunk, stuck underneath the CYC dock masters location at Monroe around the tail end of last year. Engine totally submerged. Good news is the fish cooler is probably still full.

    Ahh, failed to realize you were 'clowning around' this weekend instead.... In that case, you'll be over four cases of Miller Lite, and under a 155.

    ....you'll be under an A2, tight tack line.

    Ok, fess up - which one of you guys is chopping off legs? --- Sun-Times Media Wire June 6, 2013 (CHICAGO) -- A human leg was found on a Kenwood neighborhood beach Wednesday afternoon on the South Side. Police were notified at 2:42 p.m. of a human leg on a beach in the 4700 block of South Lake Shore Drive, police said. Authorities said a person walking along Lake Michigan found the leg on the rocks near the lake, which was severed from the hip down. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office. Area Central detectives are conducting a "death investigation," police said.

    Saw an interesting pic showing where it needs to rain to actually have a difference on Lake Michigan water levels. Thanks Tom Skilling.

    Maybe that's because 'Baxter' is barely considered 'professional'.... Sorry. Just my .02. That same sentiment isn't meant towards Mike of course.

    Uh oh - Pendragon looks to be heading back to the harbor during the 2nd weather leg... There must be some serious action out there. Hope all is well.
