    Disgusted to hear that Matt Mason interview. I hope he sleeps one off and apologizes.

    It is Comanche’s duty to follow through with the protest. It’s been discussed a lot around here lately about dropping protests if the end result didn’t harm the fouled boat (if Comanche had won). Problem with that is the fouling boat gained an advantage by not taking a penalty. They gained an advantage of every boat competing for correct time IF they fouled. It is absolutely not bad sportsmanship for Comanche to pursue. It’s frankly the correct thing to do. I don’t care who wins, but glad Comanche is following through. Some on here should go read the Basic Principles of the RRS again.

    Wait... you want us to actually show up? I thought entering was enough! I don't know if I'll be allowed to return to CA after visiting FL. ;-)

    Perhaps the Farr is faster than Sequoia in those conditions. We were not faster than the J/145, The Doc, in those conditions. Perhaps boat prep, time in the boat, not laying the gybe mark, setting/dousing a kite after the gybe mark was a part of the difference too? I can guarantee you that Taxi would have crushed us all in those conditions if they'd come out... It was good to see Sequoia back out. Hope the boat gets back out regularly and gives the Farr a run for the pickle dishes!

    The short answer is, it is Matt's fault (I know you all thought I was going to say Eric's)! The longer answer is laziness! We looked at the new cruising main last week when we had no one to sail against and were too lazy to put the full sized main back on... it is only Wet Wed!

    Congratulations 3 Big Dogs!!! There is a very deep field for "Outstanding Out of Town Accomplishment" in 2010, and we are less than halfway through the year!

    From what I remember: A/B Fleet: 1st: Skian Dhu- 3 2nd: Taxi Dancer- 5 3rd: Bebe - 6 4th: Prevail- 6 I don't recall how C/D fleet ended up...

    Nice Job Warrior and Prevail! I'm pretty sure Warrior swept 1st and 1st in EVERY rating system. The Morpheus PHRF finish shows them finishing in 0:00:00 corrected, which obviously is wrong and they won't beat Warrior when they change the error. Great job! MadMacks, it is spelled Bohman.

    Thanks everyone for the calls, texts and e-mails. It made 5 days in the hospital a little more bearable. Long story short, what I thought was indigestion for a few weeks was a gallstone impeding the bile duct in the gallbladder. The backed up bile was poisoning me. Fortunately, after a very rough Saturday night, I went to the Emergency Room (instead of Urgent Care which I had done a couple weeks ago). It took 4 days to get my body back in condition for surgery and finally Wednesday evening my gallbladder was removed. I'm back home recouping now. I look forward to seeing everyone around the club or sailing soon. The calls and texts were very appreciated and helped me pass the time in a scary situation. Thanks!

    That's a great old photo. "Guys in green stay on starboard, guys in red stay on port!"
