  1. Bang up post. Way to contribute. Also, grammar and spelling.
  2. Ever notice how the preferable forecasts never seem to hold, but any forecast of it being upwind tends to be accurate?
  3. Popped my Mackinac cherry on an O30. Race record was set that year. Good times.
  4. Red Circle (J111, 40.7, Farr40, etc). Saturday of the Verve. Heartbreaker's spin douse at the start of the first race. That was beyond boat porn. It was high def dvd yachting porn. Fucking beautiful.
  5. Pretty proud to have sailed on her, if only for one season. Did bow when that nasty storm blew through in the 2011 Mac. Never saw light like that in the sky. Saw her last fall on a trip to Santa Cruz. Personally, I was a little sad to see her in that state.
  6. Bit of a light show on the trip to St. Joe last night. Anyone got any good video? Also, what was up with the RC boat setting off flairs after some boats had finished?!?
  7. Got a pretty cool regatta picture and was wondering if anyone had experience getting an original painting based on a photograph? Any artists in the Area III network? I was going to post as a new topic in SA but thought I'd try to see if there were any local artists first.
  8. we had 110 TWA. gusty, lots of ease, hike, trim, but the lake was flat. good time.
  9. Makes me think about the sea boot story.... Not sure if I know that one. But to contribute to stories, I did a mac with Pik on a J105 ('06 or '07, I think). Blew 25kts DDW. Didn't know you could drive a sprit boat by the lee. Pik did it. Haven't seen that since.
  10. JT and Pik in the last month. Two pillars of Chicago sailing. Fair winds...
  11. +1 I'll never forget my first beercan (and first time racing, ever): coming in, I asked a fellow crewmember if we owed any money to the boat owner. I was first laughed at, then had explained to me that my payment should come in the form of hard work and a good attitude. If I brought some beer to share with everyone else, well all the much better. I couldn't believe it: I just got to enjoy a kickass sailboat race against the backdrop of the skyline during a sunset and all I had to provide was some beer? How many other people know that? Get that story out there.
