    Are Mount Gay Hats Cool?

    Fellow crew got ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) and there was a fund raiser for him in Newport a few years ago. I donated ~25 red hats for the auction. The hats were a hit on the auction block... much better than I had anticipated.

    I think if you are UFD and you continue to race the whole race, RC can DNE you. Please confirm.

    Older Pearson 30....get one with a diesel
  13. November I had my bicep tendon severed at home on a Sunday, scared me more than it hurt. Went to work on Monday, walk into the docs office Monday PM, he took one look and said come back Thursday and we'll fix it. Out patient surgery, Doc went in on the inside of my elbow, two inch scar. The x-ray of the tendon anchor repair looked very straightforward. Was back at work the following Monday. Missed 1.5 days of office work. Had to cancel KW but started back racing at Charleston. No formal physical therapy, i just kept straightening the arm over and over. No stiffness, no future pain and suffering,etc. I'm just a weekend warrior racing 24 regattas/weekends a year at 47 years of age... Question: Can this guy not get a job associated with his degree? If this guy is found racing on a pro level again, does Swartz have any recourse?
