    The Naked Beach; Part Deux

    Anyone who wants to order prints of some of Mer's great work this week, you can browse her full gallery here. Deeply discounted prices, all proceeds go to support my drug habit, or her next lens. I guess it depends how much y'all buy...

    Apparently 1 boat broke their mast and have a partial rig, still making their way to the finish. Sick!

    The Naked Beach; Part Deux

    So after a lengthy nap and about 4 hours on the water, we're getting ready for dinner. The story of the day is TCDYC, the Texas F-18 that ran away with it today. Nearly caught by Team Whike, the lone star boat sailed close to the beach, inside quite a few bars and breakers, and made it just a...

    Note to self; at 90 mph, the subaru burns much more fuel than at 80. We literally rolled into the Mobil in richmond hill as the car sputtered to a stall. And now we are headed into the teeth of a monster squall!

    We just took a short detour through the cool little town of Amelia Island, GA. Quqint and historic, a mishmash of colonial and beach construction, the island has the distinction of being the only US city ti have been under control of 8 different flags throughout its history. Bigger news? We...

    Just learned that all N20 teams were advised to take an extra kite this morning - that just doesn't happen in this race. Reason is the defective spinnakers that so many of the Nacra 20s have had to deal with.

    Here's THE START! And here's that LONG interview with Chuck Bargeron. Worth listening to, as he talks about NASA, homeland security, and the difficulty of figuring out the right penalty for infractions.

    BTW, wind is pretty light right now, just 6 or 7 from the SE. We are getting ready to roll North.

    Hey Harry - I see you on the thread - Do you have any comments about all the Team Velocity kites falling apart? Really a crappy situation, and I hope you do right by them. These guys plan for a year for this event, and to have something like 9 kite failures on new kites that totally screwed...

    A few of my crappy pics: 1 - The entire fence around the pool was draped with hundreds of items of clothing last night, all night. 2 - Hottie patrol...Mer and Dana 3 - From behind :)

    Ahhh, the luxury to enjoy a breakfast. First videos are up, and the rest are just seconds away from being up. You all asked about the penalties for Mischa and others who went inside the exclusion zone - you got your answer. Look for Chuck Interview vid in just moments. I think Team Royal is...

    The Naked Beach; Part Deux

    Oh, you'll have it Sunday night no doubt. Truth is I have read up on the Tybee/Worrell and spoke to a number of participants before coming down here, so I knew what to expect. What I didn't know was just how much more in common the race has with a Baja 1000 or a 5-break-in-5-day surf tour than...

    From the Tybee site: Seacats White just called us and reported a broken rear beam. They're limping the boat to the finish - hopefully. We've got em about a mile and a half from the finish I just saw the boys from TVS3 - blew out their gudgeon at the start, bent it back, lost their kite halfway...
