    NASS race Annapolis to Oxford 9/8

    Where's the best place to launch a fixed keel Hobie 33 for this race? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, Jim Keeley 561-444-2787

    First boat at age 50

    Had a SJ 24 in the 80's. Took her everywhere. Crossed the Gulf Stream several times. Generally, a good sailing boat, EXCEPT, off the wind. She'll go into wild right/left gyrations and it will be hard to sail her under the spinnaker. A blooper definitely helps when going off the wind. She'll go to weather and reach quite nicely. Won quite a bit of silver with her, so learn her quirks and you will be rewarded. Good Luck and fair winds.

    Hire an illegal and pay the price

    The Agriculture Lobby just won't allow any meaningful legislation to occur, at least while Congress is Republican controlled. Not even sure meaningful Legislation could occur with Democrats in charge. However, I feel that there is a better chance that the Democrats would do something to correct this mess. So, I will vote mostly Democrat in November. But my usual method of voting is that I never vote for an incumbent or an incumbent party. If we ever get term limits, then maybe I will change my voting method. I do feel, however, that if an illegal immigrant can't get a job, then that illegal will either turn to crime or leave. If crime, then the jails will be waiting. Either way, problem starts to get solved.

    Trump to impose 200B in tariffs on China

    I don't mind taking China to task over their trade actions. I do, however, mind the U.S. going to economic war with Canada, Mexico and the EU at the same time. Trump is trying very hard to isolate the U.S. from everyone but Russia. Think about that. Everyone BUT Russia. The number of people attached to Trump in some way or another are attached to Russia in some way or another. There have been various people that have hit the news but there is one person that recently hit the news. Maria Betina, who is under house arrest. She is going to be a problem for Trump. She may seem insignificant right now, but she is an important part of a larger puzzle.

    Chesapeake Bay Debris Cancelling Racing

    We don't need those stinking regulations. We need the stinking pollution. This is nothing compared to the algae problem in the Indian River Estuary in the Stuart, Florida area. You should see that one. Toxic Algae is forcing businesses to close. MAGA. Make America Gross Again.

    sometimes you just suck - FP

    Actually, by doing a JOB, you are contributing more than just the boat. You are part of the deal. That goes a long way with crew.

    Front Page - Plastic

    I agree that Trump is not the instigator of the PLASTIC problem facing the entire planet, and certainly all of the U.S.. Trump does, however, have control over the Governmental Agencies that are supposed to protect the U.S. with the EPA being the most important. Here is where Trump has failed the citizens of the U.S. big time. He appointed Satan to oversee that Agency. One must ask oneself. WHY? Only Trump can answer that question. But he won't receive my vote because of his support for Satan, and neither will the other politicians that support that same Satan.

    what is it?

    I think we are looking at a stroke of genius. This makes too much sense.

    Go or No Go

    Our club has the same problem and we solve it by going to the local bar and having a few drinks. Unfortunately, there is no correct answer since cancelling races for the reasons cited can't be planned. My boat is a trailer-sailer and it is a pain-in-the-neck when the race is cancelled after we have launched. So, back on the trailer and off to the local bar. Doesn't matter. Can't wait for the next race.

    what kind of boat is that?

    Is there a boat in this picture? I don't see a boat. She looks like a HOTTIE 23.
  11. Macgregor 25. Not the early Venture 25 but the later Mac 25. Has an enclosed head and plenty of room for 4. This boat was designed for and sold to a zillion families like yours. They do sail pretty good. Not a sport boat, but a pretty good sailboat. Will do pretty good in any PHRF fleet. It's in the sailboat HALL OF FAME. Easy to set up and break down. Mast raising is a snap if you set it up right. Put it away in your backyard when done and pay no slip fees.

    laugh or cry?

    If the fishing boat hit them, or otherwise got in their say, then Redress. Otherwise, they are at fault.

    Trumps Parade!!

    Armed Teachers will be the Security Force used to protect the parade from Terrorists. They will be armed with AR-15 rifles with bump stock modifications and large capacity clips. After the Parade it is rumored that they will invade Congress and kill all Democratic Representatives. Trump will blame Fake News for the coverage.

    Our racers don't drink enough

    I have always appreciated the way the Rudder Club in Jacksonville, Florida runs the Mug Race. I can't wait to finish the Race and get a plate of their famous spaghetti and meat balls. Costs for the Race always seem reasonable, to include the beer and drinks. I've been doing the Race each year for about 15 + years. Never had a bad time. Might be a good idea to stop by and find out what they are doing right.
