    Applying bow stickers.

    Friend won first race of 30 ft keelboat nationals at Larchmont. Made crew weight, so they all went out to breakfast in town. No wind. Came back to yc All boats way out on sound. Got on boat and headed out. Turned around. Forgot bow numbers. Headed for start, bow guy installing bow numbers. Just got to rc at the gun. Horizon job. Rc (long time sailmaker) yells hey you did not check in, and your bow numbers are upside down. Don't worry about it, great race.

    Epic Boat Loss

    Would be stern to with a drogue. Inventor Don Jordan said the drogue he invented would not protect the boat and crew if used off the bow in a severe storm.

    Shipping one tomorrow for a Nordic 44...very similar to Jeannes..even same bridle legs for a sailor out of Charleston. In fact Jeanne got his Drogue and we've redone his. he has been slowed by Matthew de hurricane. Pretty sure yacht designed by r. Perry.
