Singin' balls to your partner, your ass against the wall,
If ya never been laid on a Saturday night, ya never been laid at all.


I first heard this when I was about 10 years old, and at summer camp where the counselors were all English and Irish. But the verse was,

"If you've never been FUCKED on a Saturday night, you've never been FUCKED at all."

Anyone know of a way to get close to Sturgeon Bay other than driving?

We're delivering from there next weekend and are trying to avoid making someone drive all the way up to drop us off.

If not a new hobby, perhaps he trades his tippy dinghy in for a boat with a keel that will right itself, like a J/24.

Wow, so is there really going to be enough room at 31st for everyone? And isn't 31st street closer to McCormick than DuSable?

Also, I get why they want the boats out a few days before, but why 3 days after the meetings?

Wow, so is there really going to be enough room at 31st for everyone? And isn't 31st street closer to McCormick than DuSable?

Also, I get why they want the boats out a few days before, but why 3 days after the meetings?


The Police state does not have to explain why they do anything...


Well if you weren't already on the no fly list, you probably are now.


I was on the watch list. It almost took an act of congress to get off. Classified that you are on a list, classified which of 17 possible agencies put you there no legal recourse, but we are convincing our military personnel they are defending our freedom (no disrespect directed at the military) with there life and limb. And this is freedom?

Also received this response from a one of the Navy Pier Ship Captains:


You are reading the reg's correctly and that iscurrently how it stands. However, in press releases and at ourInternational Ship Master's Industry Day the USCG suggested that they wouldlikely be making exceptions to the restrictions for the tour and workboats. Recreational vessels may not get the exception.


The reason it remains an unknown is everyone(USCG, Police Marine Unit, ILDNR, etc.) is because the Secret Service will notreveal their plan until sometime shortly before the start of this event.



So we're all kind of waiting to see right now.



Hope that helps,

Has anyone else come or go from 31st street yet?

We delivered there yesterday (Helped a friend bring his 44' Beneteau down from Sturgeon Bay) - got in about 5 am just after first light. Wind was about 12-15 E NE and Waves about 2-4 ft. I was by no means concerned as it wasn't too bad out there, but I will say that it could be interesting for people coming and going on rough days.

The gap is pretty tight, close to the wall and you need to turn slightly northeast at the last minute to pull in. If you come in too close to the entrance instead of approaching from a more southerly route you also risk not seeing someone coming out of the harbor - most likely a motorboat that decides to gun it the second they are out of the mouth. You can't really see the entrance unless you are approaching from a very shallow southerly angle or until you are right on it coming more from the east.

If there's strong breeze and surf out of the E or NE, people are going to need to really know what they're doing to get in safe. There's a definite risk of being swept into the wall or breaker if you don't know what you're doing. I know the approach is similar to Montrose, however, the gap seems a little tighter and the turn you need to make changes things a bit as well.

By the way, I'm not at all saying that something was designed or built poorly. That's way over my pay grade and I'm certainly no old salt. I also know some people here worked on it, so if I'm totally off, then just let me know. Just a thought if you have a delivery coming up there and it's your first approach it's good to know so you can be safe. I'm Probably also a little more cautious with the two recent, sad incidents.

The harbor otherwise is a marvel. I can't believe how many slips are in there and how nice the amenities will be once it's done.

FYI this weekend COLYC is hosting the Baker Qualifier for MISSA. The Baker Cup is the High School National Championship for team racing. Racing will be either in Monroe Harbor or in the basin just outside. The racing should be easily visible from either COLYC or CYC Monroe if in the harbor. If in the basin you can see it from COLYC upper decks. Come on out and cheer for the local high school sailors.

Management and Communications website to receive message alerts via text message or

Holy F-ing Sh##.
I'm stunned..........

No, I'm not a regular, I'm an out of towner from Michigan who regularly comes into Chicago for regattas (at least 2X a year).
This scares the SH## out of me. Mostly because I don't know where all the lines are drawn.

I KNOW its not the weekend of the NOOD or Verve, but it still intimidates the heck out of me.

I don't think there is any racing this weekend. However, checking the A3 website, there is only 1 entry for ALL races this year so far. What gives?

Not sure what their stock is but this is the 2nd or 3rd lot of 10 that Spinlock has put on ebay. Might be worth keeping an eye out for the next batch. May get different sizes next time.
