    Around the Vinyard Race. Ok to use your engine?

    Just for the uneducated about this race - here is the area in question. Course is straight down through this channel to a MoA "The hooter" mark just below the bottom of this pic. Strong current was 3-4 kts moving to the south but then wraps westward over Wasque Shoal. The chart should be used for general reference but depths of ever shifting shoals not to be trusted for navigational purposes.

    NYYC Invitational IC37

    I enjoyed the video and off the cuff commentary by Andy - livened up what could have been a very dry & redundant commentary of a yacht race. While I laugh at the no hiking, and the quickness of the class to reduce sail - I appreciate that it levels the playing field and extends the longevity / protection of the fleet. If anything - it puts more empahsis on crew work, tactics and execution and keeps the fleet even more together and more interesting to watch on screen than if a few boats trail due to poor sail selection. Looking forward to more of it!

    Suggestions for activities in Newport RI

    NYYC Annual Regatta is the following weekend. NYYC Leukemia Cup is on the Saturday June 8th so perhaps you can dig around here for a ride or at IYAC the night before if you are looking to go racing.
  4. Sounds like you like rolling the dice on permits so why not make it a homemade trailer like this guy... you could probably find a shady beatup truck for under the cost of renting and feed it oil the entire way north then donate it for the tax writeoff...

    From my knowledge it is a sistership to IMP. I believe it previously was called "Secret Affair" and was raced in the Great Lakes. It was not "Midnight Sun" which was also raced in LIS.
