OK... update on the J24, Melges, etc... Inshore Course... Breeze has finally arrived and they started their first race on that course.

No further updates at this time. I'm just looking out the window and can see them racing.

Clean I think is at that course so maybe he'll post some news on them shortly.

Alright y'all - race 1 in the Melges was a fun one - Reggie Fairchild and Ned Goss (OSA) went from 2nd to 6th to 2nd again. Bill Blank takes first. Shifty as hell though - Ned said "the last boat to round the leeward mark crossed half the fleet on the next beat."

Simon Strauss, with Jeff Madrugali on tactics - 9th....

We're here for the entire next race, and we'll have the good stuff. Much comfier in here than outside, short courses and lots of boats. Outside it was justt too spread out...

Okay kiddies, 4 minutes to Melges start...Bill Carleton and his boys promised us they'd try for a port-tack pin end start...

does it matter? said:
Hey CLEAN, can I get an update for USA500, Hollerbach's FU...thanks.
I'll keep an eye out. Nate never showed, and Bear was about 400 lbs. light as of last night, when he was looking for a giant gorilla.
