    Melges 40

    After racing on a TP52 for 3 seasons the answer to that question is yes.

    Looks like old HR won't be hanging around Loch Lomand anymore. He has a Foreign Warrant/Hold which means he's wanted out of Marion County or the State of California, Plus an $11,000 bail. If he doesn't have money for $10 hanks he sure as hell doesn't have a grand for bail. Failure to appear & driving on a suspended license is just a misdemeanor though.

    Anybody in the 190 Ibs ballpark want to do bow for a CMRC Spring Invitational boat this weekend? P.M me.

    Since Lake Michigan and Lake Huron are actually one body of water we need it to rain on both lakes. At least every other day for the past two weeks it has rained on the GL's. Lake Michigan/Huron went up 3 cm (1.1") in March. The snow melt is up in the U.P and Canada and goes mostly into Superior which drains into the north channel and then into Lake Huron. Anywhere we can get it the GL's need it. Rain, Snow, Drunken sailors bladders. Remember no beer brewed with GL's water. That means no Miller Lite!

    Was Q by TK out here. Drumbeat the Soto 40 was a Q too. Must have been a good selling point.

    Lake level is way low. Down nearly 20" today from June '12. February and March are always the yearly lows. Pretty cool interactive Great Lakes dashboard

    Just my speculation that it’s the new Drumbeat. The Soto 40 went out to Nova Scotia at the end of the 2011 season. I also believe that the Drumbeat contingency tried to charter the DK 46 First Light for the 2012 season but it never came to fruition. Matt B is probably in the know. No pressure to spill the beans or anything....

    This is just my observation College sailing is more popular and competitive now than it has ever been. It’s hard to find a school on or near the water that doesn’t have a sailing team or least a club. Even the landlocked schools that are miles from any body of water seem to have a club team. The economy sucks! I have half a dozen buddies with Bachelor of Science or Art degrees from good schools that are underemployed or unemployed. The college educated 21-28 demographic has been hit hard by the Obama economy. Who in that demographic would go to a boat show if there was nothing at the show they could afford? I’ve been a ninja (no income, no job, no assets) for the past 2 years and only recently have I found employment. I’m so grateful to be working but I sure as hell don’t make enough money to buy a new or used boat. When the economy turns around for the better then maybe all of us ninjas will have a little bit of discretionary income to spend on boats. I also feel like it is really hard for an outsider who has money to spend to break into the sport in Chicago. I commend Columbia yacht club for its skipjacks program. More organization in that matter will certainly be good for the Chicago sailing scene. Just my 2cents.
