    We kept goin'. We had many conversations; Why are we doing this race? Why don't we sign up for a race in the Caribbean instead?

    Yes...and sadly this mentality is lately pervasive and has propagated to my crew. Sail only when it is nearly perfect. After a down shift on the Mac, when I got on deck I found no head sail put up. Why? "We are waiting for the storm" said the watch captain. My reaction was "If the wind picks up we can take the sail down..." I was overruled. We spent 90 minutes without a head sail. To sail well in the tough stuff, you need to experience the tough stuff.

    CYN - Chicago Yachting and Navigation was on North Elston next to the North Loft. West Marine is OK for basics. Crowley's on 95th street near the sky way is good. I also should give a shout out to Line Honors. They have helped me with some gear: http://linehonors.com/
