  1. Just for the uneducated about this race - here is the area in question. Course is straight down through this channel to a MoA "The hooter" mark just below the bottom of this pic. Strong current was 3-4 kts moving to the south but then wraps westward over Wasque Shoal. The chart should be used for general reference but depths of ever shifting shoals not to be trusted for navigational purposes.
  2. I enjoyed the video and off the cuff commentary by Andy - livened up what could have been a very dry & redundant commentary of a yacht race. While I laugh at the no hiking, and the quickness of the class to reduce sail - I appreciate that it levels the playing field and extends the longevity / protection of the fleet. If anything - it puts more empahsis on crew work, tactics and execution and keeps the fleet even more together and more interesting to watch on screen than if a few boats trail due to poor sail selection. Looking forward to more of it!
  3. From my knowledge it is a sistership to IMP. I believe it previously was called "Secret Affair" and was raced in the Great Lakes. It was not "Midnight Sun" which was also raced in LIS.
  4. Hotspur - IOR Holland 40 still racing on Long Island Sound
  5. Some reason I am reminded of this wonderful classic movie quote: Larry: [to Professor Jennings, while high] Okay. That means that our whole solar system could be, like one tiny atom in the fingernail of some other giant being. [Jennings nods] This is too much! That means one tiny atom in my fingernail could be-- Professor Jennings: Could be one little tiny universe. Larry: Could I buy some pot from you?
  6. Do you think they didn't run into a freighter at all - but rather somthing else?
