Clean and crew - Keep an eye out for Horizon, an S2-7.9 in PHRF 6. This is their weather. Let's see if they can chase down those WylieCat's today.

And more bikini pics please!

Great coverage all around.
Thank goodness I'm "working from home" today!!!

Mer's just now converting a bunch of our anarchist pals on Div 4. Funny stuff - some fishing, some drinking, all laughing. Strategery and the boys got an SA shirt in lieu of the bottle I owe him from a year ago when we bet on Basilica vs. Tommy.

Haven't seen this reported on here, if it has, appologies, but..

The boys on Hot Ticket had a HELL of a ride from Galveston Bay! Let's just say it involves: gales, dropping a rudder, 4" hole, coasties, cutters and helicopters.

You can follow the adventure here.

BUT THEY'RE THERE RACING AND CURRENTLY IN !!

If you guys run across them down there, BUY THEM A BEER FOR DAMN'S SAKE!!!

Might make a good story for the front page.

Clean,

Great report on Jesse and the Mini 6.50.

Love to see part II.

How about a little write up with some photos and more info about the class/US Mini's for the front page (as if you don't already have enough going on). I'd love to see single-handed ocean racing catch on in the US like it has in Europe.

I'm with you, BP. Bad ass little boats and psychotic sailors, all of them. Looking forward to seeing the class build here in the States. My gal did the KWR with Andy on Pheonix. Now I have to build a boat for her to go race on her own. There are a few more of us that will be getting into the short-handed, little boat ocean racing in the near future.

Is anything good coming out of the Premiere blog? I'd love to know if there's something interesting happening on the other courses.

Division 1 - Farr 40, Melges 32, M 30

Reporter: Susan Burnside

1507H: Sun's coming out. The Melges 32s are about 5 minutes from the gate.

1503H: Leading Farr 40s are now approaching the gate. Breeze is about 12 knots now. It looks like Twins will be the first to the gate followed by Mascalzone Latino and then Nerone. Very close fleet at the gate.


--------------------------------


Division 2 - IRC 1, Swan 42, PHRF 1, IRC 2, PHRF 2

1453H: OK--- Up top I go to finish the fleet with the scorers----- will be back as time permits--- Conditions are still fabulous----------

1450H: Numbers is around the final top mark heading back to the finish. We are setting up to finish most of the fleet before we post a warning signal for race 2 today (race 5 in the series)--- We anticipate setting a 5 leg course with a windward finish--- be back in a few

1446H: Beautiful flat water sailing conditions with a fair test for the fleet---- a welcome relief--- who whud-da thought!

1444H: In PH1 the J125 is through the gate with an approx. 90 second lead over the bright orange Farr 36.

Wairere is the next boat about 20 seconds after that.

1442H: IRC1 and the Swan 42's are through the gate--- no course change as the breeze is steady in direction and velocity. We anticipate starting the IRC1 and Swan 42's while we are finishing the other 3 classes so we can get 2 races in today.

1432H: PH2 Off with 3 boats OCS who all re-started. All competitors on Div 2 are no racing-- Pics coming over.

1428H: Breeze is up to 12kts in the puffs---- wind direction 325 - 335

1427H: IRC2 is now racing-- Le Renard (Farr 40) OCS -- returned right away and is on the course.

1421H: PH 1 off and all clear--- 2 more starts and I will send in some nice pics---

1413H: IRC 1 is on the track-- 3 boats OCS- Crackers, Russal and Mayhem--- all re-started and proceeding up the first weather leg in a nice 8 knot breeze.

The Swan 42' are off clean in a well contested start with the entire fleet on the line Farr 40 style---- conditions right now are fantastic---- better than expected mopre breeze coming in.

--------------------------------


Division 3 - Melges 24, J/105, J/80

1458H: The Heli is hovering over the gate for a photo session. RC adjusted the weather mark for the second upwind leg . There is a Cruise ship coming in the channel, haven't seen the Navy's F18s yet today

1446H: The J80s are off and running ... Individual Recall !!! (what's new?) Melges class is already half way down the course to the leeward gate. Breeze is 12-14 now. We are going for 2 races

1435H: X-ray is still up .... J105 class warning in one minute. Where did the Sun go? J105s are all in the starting box and ready to go ... Individual Recall !!! Eager Beavers on the water today. X-ray is still up ???

1422H: We are in sequence now with "i" flag prep signal. Hopefully the center line boat will survive the Melges start. ... And they are off .... Individual Recall !!!

Here is PR's version of this division/fleet

1515H: 156 corsair is coming down!

1509H: Corsairs are on their 5th leg and flying.

Rumblefisch did show up!

1505H: The R flag is flying. The winds are swinging around, but holding to the course. Winds are up to about 10-12

1500H: All started. Alll OCS came back. Phrf B - 49,24,50484 jumped, all others clear.

Corsairs had their first rounding.


1418H: The bearing is being set up for 340 so the gate is moving. The pin is being dropped. We are definitely preparing for a start. AP is coming down at 14:24. All boats are here, but Rumblefisch seems to be really late today.

1413H: Gate being set for 345. Wind is filling and stabilizing here at the signal boat.

1410H: We are seeing winds from 330 to 350 at the wind end and 00 - 015 at the gate.

Wind is holding at 5-7

1406H: The wind is not steady. Going from 030 to 370. Still in postponement to stabilize direction.

1405H: We are seeing puffs clocking to the left side. Seeing winds in the 7's.

1359H: May lower AP as soon as 14:09

The wind filling in from the other courses is heading our way!

1356H: We are some seeing wind here, but flat to shore where we would send them. Not falling for the sucker wind.

What we do get is 320 with little variation.

1350H: Caribbean Soul 2 is doing a little swimming. Or are they doing an extra scrub on the bottom?

1347H: Hot Stuff is the boat doing some fishing. Not catching much. SA Relentless boat has come by for a chat. They report the wind is multiple miles away. We are seeing 340 at less than 3 at weather 1.

1337H: One of the boats put out a fishing line. Check my photos to see if you can identify. Sending them in now.

Event Blogger Question...do they have a fishing permit???

1331H: 1:30 - we have gone into postponement. Too much sun; not enough wind.

1317H: At our wind axis of 320 the wind is dying on the course to flat water. The sun is causing the wind to go left and drop.

1304H: Course board:
A B-D E
6 4 4
1.0 1.3 1.0


1303H: Announcement: Day 4 - 40 minutes ago 320 at 8k, now shifted left and dropped. If conditions are good, we will start sequence at 13:30.

1256H: The first boats to show were One Up and Magic. Our last starters are raring to go!

1253H:

Location:
24 30.701
81 43.922


1239H: We have yet to anchor but boats are finding us. The slight current should keep the boats back a little, but they will quickly adjust and be pushing the line as always.

1236H: The RC signal is hanging around a little over a mile southeast of where we were yesterday.

1224H: The winds and a PRO are in agreement to have two races. Slight oscillations. A little current going east.

1213H: Weather - 330, 7-8k, and 340 at 6k across our course. Sounds like a race to me!

1202H: The Division 4 RC is heading out. Cloudy with humidity mists. No waves.

1000H: Today is Lewmar day. They have a great new winch handle. I call it the Grab and Go. It is currently available as 10", but the 8" will be available at West Marine this week. I got to play with this handle at the Annapolis Boat show in Sept and I could not get it to fail. Being a smaller person and always having trouble with locking ones my boat owner has promised me an 8" for this season!

The sun is out, the wind is moderate, and it's just too good over here. Turned out to be a perfect day. The photo boats are brawling with each other all trying to get the best shots, there must be 30 freelancers here, plus the official photogs. Fucking funny. We're annoying to all of them since we've got a 43' boat with a flybridge and tower.
