So honestly, how big a slog is this to head SW afterwards? Otherwise, it sounds like a great time!

Many of us are going to cruise the south shore of Newfoundland (which is spectacular) and then head for the Bras D'Or lakes of Cape Breton, which is also spectacular, after the race. If you have time to do it, it's highly recommended!

I had a look at your blog and your McCurdy Rhodes 46 would be a sweet ride for the race!

PM me if I can be of assistance.

Thanks! I guess it depends on how long it takes me to get home! I know, I know...I shouldn't be focused on deadlines. ;)

Any other boats originating near Newport for the ride to Halifax?
I see there is a non-spin division; is this viable given prevailing winds?

Mantra, a Little Harbour 51, raced non-spin in 2008 and took it all, and there's lots of cruisers doing the 2012 race. The last two races have been fast beam reaches most of the way.

Yes, us. The boat is at Parker's on Cape Cod for the winter, we' ll bring her near Newport to prep and provision for the trip to Halifax.

Given our small, family crew and varnish hog boat, we're going white sails for the race. I wish the cruisers were allowed an asym, but we'll bring that for the cruising part.

CL - Parker's is a terrific yard! Nice family. Are you sailing back to Maine or further south afterward? I might do this race simply because we haven't finalized downwind inventory yet.

I really don't know yet. My plan (so far) is to cruise the south coast of Newfoundland after the race, then come back through the Bras D'or lakes. After that, I hope to be open, although a couple of business committments may have me traveling back and forth.

So far I'm very happy with Parker's, so the plan would be to end up back there by season's end.

*turns out I'm actually NOT registered. By the time Gumby tried to register me, the course for May 16th was full, and I can't make the June 20th one. :( Oh well, on the waiting list, and if I can't make it this year, I'll make it next time.

Yes, crossing my fingers. Have the day tentatively booked off work.

I've never taken a SAS course. This will be my first one. If by chance I do make it, I'll be the blonde reminding Gumby "Women and children first!"

It's the new (personal) safety gear that cost me on this race.


I didn't pay more than I expected to pay for provisioning, which wound up being around the same as for the full circuit of Marblehead.

How is that an insult or even a slight? Higher demand results in suppliers being able to set a higher price. I'm praising his abilities as a sailor who needs to both be competitive and cover his bills. Nothing wrong with that. Congratulations on your win man and thanks for the helping me try to get mine.

Since at least two of us, older (Nautigirl, I assume you're older than 21, albeit just barely) and wiser than you, read the same thing into what you said, I suggest you look deeply at the tone and intention of your message. Get back to us when you understand and can explain to the group what you meant to say. In the meantime, I will take what you said at face value, and call you a poor sport.

So I take it that until he won his class in Bermuda, you felt that he wasn't charging enough? That a ride on Dogsled was vastly undervalued to this point, but now he'll wake up and demand a fair price for a spot on his rail?

Get back to us when you understand and can explain to the group what you meant to say. In the meantime, I will take what you said at face value, and call you a poor sport.


Well, aren't you sweet, but I'm no where near 21!

The wonderful thing about growing up is you learn to spend more time worried about what you're doing and what you think, and less time worrying about what other folks are doing and thinking.

This time next week, we'll probably be nursing hangovers.

DYC is hosting a TGIF tonight to recongize the members participating in the race. Looking forward to that. :)

6:00ish. (It's a steak & lobster TGIF. If you want to eat, maybe call Gumby, as we had to order in advance. Of course, you can always drop by and just drink)

I think it's a nice gesture on the part of the club to do a little something for the 3 DYC boats participating, with the added bonus of making the whole membership aware of the event. I overheard that they're going to present us with little parting gifts. I really do love our club. :)

So much to do before next weekend!

I would argue I'm not a member of either, though up until Gumby, I raced mostly out of RNSYS.

The people at DYC heartily argue otherwise, and have declared me to be a DYCer (via shacking up).

SYC is still one of my fav clubs though. :)

Any interest in planing a SA hour/night when we get to St. Pierre? We'd be happy to host on Vagrant.

'k. We'll touch base on this thread once we arrive. Lots of crews will want to have crew dinners and/or dinner with their host families. Worst case scenario is Team Vagrant will host a pre-awards night happy hour, unless Sea Smoke wishes to have the honours. I do think SA drinkies are in order though.

Well, a week until race day and Team Vagrant is down a crew following a bit of a medical emergency after last night's practice sail.

so disappointed for our missing crewmate--he was really pumped about this race and we'll miss having him with us. On the bright side, he's doing ok and it could have been much, much worse.

So now to find another crew to fill us out. :(

I have a question - I've heard about and been looking forward to being adopted for a week by a 'host' family. But when I go to the race website, I see no mention of that, only a link to (a nice selection of reasonably priced) hotels and pensions. Anyone have the low down on what actually happens?

When you arrive, your host family will be waiting on the dock. They'll give you a welcome bag (which includes champagne and usually wine). They will check in on the boat every day, usually invite you over for supper, let you do your laundry at their house, drive crew to the airport, etc. Some are more involved than others. 2 years ago, we finished around 1400, and our guy went and bought us french break, duck pate, sandwiches, better wine and pastries for the crew. They were just wonderful. They are also invited to the awards dinner. We'll be bringing some Canadian treats for our host family, including a crew jacket and crew shirts. They really do make you feel welcome.

Thanks. I was going to bring some quintessentially American stuff, tbd, in anticipation of their hospitality. My boat is turning around as soon as the skipper and his partner get a night's sleep, so I'll need to avail myself of the accommodations upon arrival.

Looking forward to meeting you, NautiGirl, and all your friends.

Saint Pierre is without a doubt the most enjoyable destination I have ever sailed to. The people are so kind and so welcoming it's hard to describe. I really cannot say enough positive things about the island and residents - you just have to do the race to know what I mean.

I plan to come back here for a month and telecommute - I may do it every year till I retire.

Yours Truly personally delivered the form to your skipper (he'd lost his package). So proud of you. I'd go to sea with you any day, even before this race. I have pics of AM accepting the award on your behalf.

Team Vagrant checking in. Well, what a race. Doing laundry in Baddeck and one of our crew's wife keeps asking me why I didn't bring shorts (I'm wearing a short sundress not conducive to getting on and off the boat). She doesn't seem to get that I did in fact bring 4 pairs of shorts, but ended up wearing them all during the race and in St. Pierre. That just never happens.

Great to meet new American friends (and to share my cuban stogies with you!)

Oh, and by the way

Very nice to have some more 'mericans representing.  Look for me on Dogsled - the big yellow boat.

Well, I've been accused of being un-'merican at times, so I hope to pass under the radar (figuratively speaking).  I wonder if it might be a good idea to start a RH-SPR 2014 thread?

Some of the most American Americans i know have been accused by the small-minded as being un-'american.  Wear it as a badge of honor.

Bump!!!!!!!!

 

We're signed up for the Varnish Hog Division. TimFordi550 signed up today, I think I've got an Un-named Local To Be Named Later on board, otherwise I'll be looking for another local crew.

 

Very excited to be coming north this summer. :)

 

Dammit.

We're sitting this one out (however will be in the lakes in the begining of August should you be planning to take a scenic cruise following the race).

 

You're in for a great time.  Really wish I was going, but apparently marriage is about compromise. At least that's what the JoP said.
