    Hawaii boating has lost one of its real characters

    Thanks for starting this thread Dan. The Vasconcellos, Rothwell & Opperman families ruled the waves at WYC back in the day. Or at least had enough kids between the families that it certainly felt that way. 14 or 15 of us. A full pool let's put it that way. One of the stories I remember...

    anything better than a melges?

    The U20 class interest me. They seem to be a great OD class and fun to sail in PHRF too. Are there any guys racing in the seattle area in OD? I understand that they have a fleet in the NOOD regattas and am just wondering if there are any local one design regattas in the northwest area. Thanks

    Lahaina Return results???

    Results? There was so much wind down both sides of Moloka'i that most boats were just happy to make it home without the assistance of the Coast Guard. Broken masts, rudders, lost sails, ripped sails... you name it, it happened. From what I heard it was knarly, and that's an understatement.
