    Hmm..... Where's the boat? Does it have any sails? Any big soft spots?

    I sailed with CHESS. Good bunch of folks. It is not as organized as SSS and has far fewer events that are nowhere near as well attended as our events. They're fairly spread out, too, with a good...

    I hear that, and it's a responsibility I will feel heavily.

    As a non-real racer, I was thinking to take the attitude that it was easier for me to compromise performance to make sure I was an...

    I've done a bit of research about Hawaii for non-sailing-related reasons and it seems that if you test negative within 72 hours of your arrival, you're unrestricted, as best I can tell.

    Two thoughts...

    1) if you want to absolutely ruin a beautiful start on this year's race, try leading your fleet at BH and then try getting to SH by going through Raccon. Thought the park up at SH...

    Oh, I certainly wouldn't propose for less than six weeks or so before the start--my angle on that anyway is it sounds like just the tune up I'd want. But I also enjoy bashing into the teeth of it...

    Shorter offshore races, anyone?

    I *really* want to go to Hawaii solo on my boat.

    Turns out my employer and my wife have some opinions about the three-plus weeks off that'll take, to say nothing of the investment. The boat will...

    Yeah, she's heavy compared to all these little downwind boats... I don't have a trailer but the boat fits about right on a J/105 trailer so it isn't impossible to borrow or rent one. I was assuming...

    Anyone looked into shipping home yet?

    My main issue with racing this year is time. I don't have the time to sail it home. Anyone coordinating for shipping deals yet this year? That's going to be the make or break for me.

    Great photos, thanks! A great crowd! Bob, I was bummed to see the division cutoff for 3BF was at 111--I don't feel like I'm racing if I'm not wondering where Bob is.
