    Chicken Chute

    It wasn't so bad when dry, as it was a smaller kite. But once it was wet we figured it weighed about 60-70 lbs and inevitably it was always wet for one reason or another when it was time to hoist it.

    A boat I raced on a few years ago had a 2.2 oz storm kite affectionately dubbed "the tractor". Felt like a pair of denim jeans. The crew was certain we would loose the rig long before we ever blew up that kite.

    Quick parking question for the locals. Does the DuSable Harbor lot allow overnight parking? Would hate to wake up the morning of NOOD and find my car full of gear MIA.

    Hey guys, I've been interested in doing to tri-state race for a few years now and I was wondering if there are any boats out there looking for crew? I have experience doing bow (dip pole gybes), mast and headsail trim but I am willing to do whatever is asked of me. Shoot me a PM if anyone has an open spot. Thanks, D
