View Full Version : Something I'd love to see in the SHTP 2012

I think it would be a riot to see three or four Moore 24's challenge three or four Mini 6.5's....A Team-Scored race to Hawaii.

It would just be for S&G's, not part of the actual race and awards by the SSS, but it would be a kick to follow and bragging and browbeating rights would last for years. :D

Well, I've never seen a Moore 24 sailing in real life (specs look really good, though!), so I should not join the race-within-the-race as of now.

But I'll do my best to take a good photo-finish so there are no doubts about who's the winner... ;-)

I know, I know, and I'm very proud of it!

Thanks for the comment. It's been lots of fun to write...
May I ask if you checked the 'weather' page and if it worked for you? (it does not work yet if you use Internet Explorer, but I believe it works fine with most of the other browsers).

Koh Samia went back into the water today after long refit. We'll be sailing soon!

Yes I did check the weather page and it works fine on safari.
I see all the work you had to do and I'm happy for you that the boat is back in the water. Best of luck, I hope it all works out.

Went sailing yesterday and she sailed beautifully... it was very light (less than 10kt), but with 4 persons on board we did very well. Now I need some more breeze and more miles.

A bit closer to Hawaii today...

Throw in a team of Cal 20's also !

That would really make it interesting ! But alas, my skipper say's he wouldn't want to be on the boat that long with me....( perhaps if i was a female )

Paul Sutchek , Cal20 #624

It's a singlehanded race..... But having more small boats would be great. Robert Crawford did the '08 race on a Cal 20 "Black Feathers" and did well, at that. If you haven't read the book, he wrote a great book bearing the boat's name.

Before I picked up the Mt. Gay 30 for the '10 race, I owned a Cal 25 and was planning on doing '10 SHTP on it. The Cal's are great boats. Small, cheap, locally available and reasonably well built.
