Any owner who does this race without requiring an ironclad COVID waiver agreement from all crew is playing with some fucking fire, that's for sure.  Causality is very hard to prove in disease cases unless you catch it somewhere certain and you don't have any contact with others.  Sort of like when you sail a social distancing Mac.  If someone catches it on the Mac and dies without a waiver 4 weeks later, you better hope an LLC or trust owns your boat and that all the paperwork is in order.

Waiver shouldn't be an expensive piece of paper to draft.  Probably 2-3 hours depending on ownership structure of the boat. Call your lawyer. 

DISCLAIMER: This is not advice for any specific person or situation, i am not your lawyer, relying on anything i write is insanely stupid, etc...

Just the cover your ass model.  I already have several acquaintances who have quietly settled COVID claims for thousands.  No defendant wants to see a case hit a jury and pay to defend against the resulting piranha blood frenzy.

I was told the guy who stole it from me used it as a condom when you made his little soldier suit up before the battle of your ass

GD I love this place. Forth day up north and I’ve totally forgotten the 1100 mile road trip to get here.

Just drove past Portage Lake After getting cold snacks and it was an absolute sparkling 15 knot out of the the WSW. Not a sail up but spotted a nicely cared for J-30 swing at anchor. There was a nice Ericsson 38 in Lake Arcadia for a couple days that had the anchorage to themselves. Looked like fun. Water temp Is 81 degrees on the surface. Kids are having a blast swimming and fishing.  Perch are making a comeback:)

The Arthur M. Anderson passed abeam about sunset last night. Pretty close inside so that was cool. So the Fitz became a bedtime story...

The big lake has been an absolute kitten for about 14 days. Even enough breeze to fill a sail or two. So long suckers, I am off to swim:)

Bump.  Clipper Cup is 2 weeks out.  Who's in?  44 boats registered as of this morning.  We will be bringing the J92 Runaway from Sheboygan along with Peerless (if they can get their forward bulkhead repaired in time).

This does sound fun, in a year where so much racing has been missed.

Usual Suspects is IN.

Just a head’s up to all the Michigan folks coming over, we just got pretty much the same mandatory mask law as you guys, but at least the bars are still open!

[Governor] Whitmer issued an executive order Wednesday night that reimposes restrictions starting at 12:01 a.m. Friday for Regions 6 and 8 — which include the Upper Peninsula and 17 counties in northern Michigan — that cap indoor gatherings at 10 people and close indoor bars where alcohol accounts for 70% of sales. Outdoor gatherings in Regions 6 and 8 remain limited to 250 people.

Welcome to the party!  If I bump into you anywhere in Port Washington, I’ll buy you a drink. (We’re still allowed to do that in Wisconsin!)

I don’t know who needs to hear this but the forecast for the GRSC Commodores Cup is light and shifty as of now.  Don’t change it from its original course, we don’t need a repeat of last year.

With football season cancelled,  any interest in a late Sept bouy race event in Muskegon?

We just created a new one on the other side of the pond for the same reason. You guys could join in. It’s Labor Day weekend. You guys could have a Friday night race from Muskegon to Port Washington (Clipper Cup rematch). Join up with our race from Port to Sheboygan Saturday. Then a race from Sheboygan to Muskegon Sunday morning. I’d happily run a start for you guys out of Sheboygan. You could treat it as a three race regatta, or go old school Volvo style and use combined times for all three legs. You’d have Monday off to relax.

That's a great idea!
