    never fuckin' mind

    Coleman, I've had the most absurd nightmare. I was poor and no one liked me. I lost my job, I lost my house. Penelope hated me. And it was all because of this terrible, awful Negro.

    That old dog is still strong. I'll post more when I get them, including the bottom of the keel.

    Boat is dry sailed b/c owner hates having to get bottomed cleaned every week over at FI. Also very good friends with yard manager. Hull work was to dry out the core. Note, the boat is 25+ years old and has been raced hard and keel replaced from IMS thing to current (well ok, missing the lead part) keel. Keel is a Britt Chance design and 10+ easily years old/ install. Thank goodness is snapped where the stainless was bolted to the lead in the fin. I know I've been harsh on Off Soundings, just glad no one was badly hurt or boat sunk. Too much of that going on with Uncontrollable Urge, Low Speed Chase, etc. Hell, even a little excitement post booze fest

    Well you were half-right. one hour shoreside and one hour on the water and then find your lane and go. We never got a chute up but managed to find a good lane on the edge of the pressure and keep the boat between 8 and 9 most of the way there, with occasional surfs into the mid 10's. I saw a lot of chute experiments that didn't work and maybe one that did. My crew threatened to mutiny if I even joked about setting the chute. Interesting drag race and yes, the sun was out by the time the flags - sans tent - went up. Overall it was an interesting weekend. Let's see what BIRW brings... NDB, there were 3 or 4 Melges 32s, a GP26, Antrim 27, Elliott 770, Melges 24 and several tri's. not *all* of the fleet is old and slow. so, a total minority makes the fleet not old.......

    I will start off by saying I totally hate Off Soundings and have for a long time. Quite frankly, the over serving of the participants has got to stop. No where else are drinks mixed one handle to a one liter bottle of mixer in to a cooler. Then to see hundreds of participants attack the coolers like a bunch of rabid dogs makes me think this regatta needs a complete overhaul. With no disrespect to the deceased, I bet this feeding frenzy was a major contributing factor in to the death last weekend. Perhaps this is the wake up call needed to control the uncontrolled alcohol consumption every spring and fall. I wouldn't be surprised to see the club sued over this death. You can tell me to eff off, go away, call me a troll but you know I am right.

    The RC's mirrors the fleet, slow and old

    most of the shit boxes in that fleet can actually take a blow like what's forecasted. It's the health of all the old farts on the boats you should worry about....
