  1. Hi Brian,
    I'm sorry to post here but I got this error message trying to message you privately:

    brianb has exceeded their stored private messages quota and cannot accept further messages until they clear some space.

    Any chance you could clean old messages?
  2. Hello Mark, Thanks for the write up. I am working on logistics. Obviously I have to get the boat back. I am looking at your schedule and thinking about coming down early to do one of your earlier races, just to play in the So Cal area. I grew up at King Harbor (a few blocks away). In fact as a toddler I watched it being built.

    Hi Brian,

    I'd be happy to help in any way I can to get you down here. We're hoping for a good turn-out this year. So far I know of at least 9 boats planning to race, and several more interested. Several folks down here are gearing up and using the Guadalupe Island race as a qualifier for the SHTP (Horizon & Slacker) and the Pac Cup (Prankster, Thriller & Bullitt). In 2008, the fleet was decimated by rough weather at the start leading to gear malfunctions. Runaway was the only boat to finish that year in what turned out to be a painful light-air finish.

    I have a write-up that Frank Ross did on the race a few years ago. I'll forward it to you. One of the memebers did quite an exhaustive statistical analysis of the buoy readings a few years ago. I'll see if I can find that as well. There might be some write-ups on the conditions of previous years in the old archive PSSA SOLO newsletters (on the website).

    - Mark
