  1. Katie Owen, and the full video is "compelling."

  3. We really must not let this vanish!
  4. Sailing a J35 in the 1990 Mac. Pretty fast race although a bit cold and wet. Made our bridge call at 0815 Monday and were headed for a podium finish, possibly as high as first. Flying the kite at about 8 knots, wind off St. Ignace. Playing games with another boat - taking up, that kind of shit. Two goats on board. It was a lttle choppy, and then the sound of the chop changed. I was standing over the winch and fell into it when the boat stopped on Graham Shoal. The boat we were fucking with stopped there, too. Watched the whole fleet pass us by. Other boat got off unassisted and finishe

  6. Absolutely correct! Going out in less than optimal conditions makes one a competent sailor. Knowing what to do and how to do it because you've tried it in (relatively) secure situations beats the hell out of trying to figure it out when the shit hits the fan.
  7. I would be surprised if we are sent out too, no need to see how good the USCG is. If we do go hope the RC packs plenty of Dramamine! I would guess we start the day under postponement, and cancel by noonish. Lot's of snacks, cold beer, and phone batteries needing recharged will be the order of the day. The key will be to get 4 or 5 races in on Saturday, 'cause Sunday looks like a drifter at this point. Hopefully that will change. Hello race committees - Saturday is your day to show us how well you can run a 3 day regatta in a day and a half. As I recall, this is

  9. Post Mac?! 3 bottles wouldn't last for the delivery on BD. I am trying to figure out how many GALLONS of rum (note: not half gallons) I need to stock for the race. We break out the margarita bucket and two handles of tequila between the finish and inspection! Multiple handles after. Prices in IL much cheaper than MI. Stock up at the Walgreens on Wabash - four blocks up from CYC Monroe station.
