    Chicago Area III

    Red Circle (J111, 40.7, Farr40, etc). Saturday of the Verve. Heartbreaker's spin douse at the start of the first race. That was beyond boat porn. It was high def dvd yachting porn. Fucking beautiful.

    That's often referred to as DP in a certain nefarious industry.

    If the forecast is shit a week out, then it's accurate. But if it's promising or even pleasant, then it's wrong.

    Username seems apropos for this year's race.

    What ever it is going to be, it will change 1,372 times before the actual start. #15 for me.

    Santa Cruz 70 - Fleet Roll Call

    Pretty proud to have sailed on her, if only for one season. Did bow when that nasty storm blew through in the 2011 Mac. Never saw light like that in the sky. Saw her last fall on a trip to Santa Cruz. Personally, I was a little sad to see her in that state.

    Chicago Mackinac Race drowning

    Has anyone heard of reports that there may have been trauma or bodily injury? That he went under in 6 minutes is pretty shocking, considering Jon had competed in Ironman competitions. Perhaps a twisted/broken limb that prevented him from staying afloat longer? Seems like a report from the ME could have confirmed that, right?

    Is sailing cool?

    I'd say most non-sailors in Chicago are aware of the Mac race, and tend to think it's pretty cool that I do it. Not sure they care too much about sailing in general.

    no, come out on the next race with me. [blows < 5kts] you might have a point...
  11. Is that funny or kind of a dick move? Still deciding.
  12. Anyone got a pic of the GL70 Details spinnaker? Not offensive. Just pretty awesome.

    Bit of a light show on the trip to St. Joe last night. Anyone got any good video? Also, what was up with the RC boat setting off flairs after some boats had finished?!?
