    Capo 30 rig

    A friend just lost the rig from her Capo 30 this past weekend in SF. Ballenger has a 4 month plus delivery time. She's hoping there is an outside chance of a lead on another rig somewhere. ????????? Cheers, Doug.

    Appraisal for POS Boat

    Talk about leaving us hanging!! WTF, is the boat? BTW, as a Certified Marine Surveyor for some 27 years now, I would turn this request down!

    video evidence

    I agree. You can't make any real conclusions from this vid.

    What was it?

    Looks a little like a Pyramid 45.

    California 300 Last Call

    Also, kudos to the Dr. aboard Deception who acted as med liaison for the Bretwalda crew. I thought there was another head injury incident, but I did not record it in my log book. I'm really tired right now and struggling to recall details. Maybe tomorrow. On Fast Exit, we covered the distance from the Santa Cruz/San Miguel gate to the weather buoy gate, 99.2 nm in just over 9 hours. We were seeing consistent windspeeds in the mid to high 20's wth gusts to 30+ and very confused sea state. Lots of carnage and very few spinnakers by the time the sun went down! Saw 18.6 boat speed with full main and #3 at one point!

    58 NM to go. What a wild night! Some attrition and some major injuries. USCG were as usual in top form.

    Short course is out. Long course is on. Looking forward to it. Looks like the big wind window is getting smaller though.
