    That's a big reason SSS runs the LongPac as a qualifier (the race this last weekend). For most, it's the first time they've slept underway while in...

    Hey, Paul~

    My email account automatically purges messages so I no longer have your address or phone number. I just wanted to wish you luck and fast sailing on the Long Pac. I'll be enviously following the race via the transponders. One of these days I'll be out there with you.

    Best,
    Lee
