    A good shakedown and glad to hear you are back. Any signs or indications of smoke from afar?

    TAZ is fond of the soft feed buckets BTW.

    How was the ULDB experience compared to the Wilderness 30?

    I just spoke with a Pac Cup veteran who had their Moore 24 rudder sheared when they rounded G1 whistle buoy. He recommends NOT going north or west of this buoy.
