    My only hope is it's not an albatross, but if it is no one harms it. We don't need another ancient mariner wandering through our literary lives.

    Rob, I agree. Official SSS business should involve the Board and the Commodore, and in this case the Race Chair. I hope no one takes it alone to ask the Coast Guard about permits! Leave official...

    I'm not going to Hawaii, but I'll take the ditch bag if no one else asks. For OYRA/BAMA/SSS costal ocean races. My ancient ditch bag's zippers are stuck and several other things wrong. Keeping it...

    The SSS Division Splits and Starting Sequence might be a place to begin looking at changes designed to make our races safer. I don't think either has been looked at for a long time. Here are...

    I've sailed SSS races since 1984 - both singe and double. As the entry numbers have grown, so have the issues. Many have been problems have been improved by better written Sailing Instructions, for...

    The CYC WILL HAVE a Shorthanded Division. Right now it has 3 boats, so could use more. If you're interested, visit the Corinthian Yacht Club website. Thanks, Pat B.

    I understand the 2 Alerion 28s entered in the CYC MidWins have requested the Shorthanded Division. With NANCY that makes at least 3. We probably need 2 more to reach 5 for a Division. Think about...

    The CYC MidWins are coming up next weekend. If there's going to be a Shorthanded Division, skippers need to enter very, very soon. The CYC will decide Divisions by Wednesday or Thursday. They are...
