    Jackie & Co., And be glad you don't have a boat rating 126 with all those Express 27s at 129 clogging things up as you try to start! "I'm Starting" doesn't work.

    I've been suggesting a Shorthanded Division for the CYC MidWins for years. They didn't see it fitting in. And when they decided this year it was late. Yes, I see some potential shorthanded boats...

    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...

    With an outboard, the "New" Dazzler probably doesn't have the juice needed for an electric pump. A.H. is right that one of the tubular pumps meets the requirement. "Nancy" is also amp handicapped...

    Although "NANCY" carries In-date offshore racing compliant rockets, hand flares, and smokes, I bought one of the floating red things a few years ago. I keep it at the top of my signal kit, so I don't...

    Sled, It isn't so much that the mainsheet (which is doubled and nearly 30' long on a running jibe) catches. It's more that the mainsheet drags down on the top safety line with standard stanchions...

    It appears Hedgehog is returning. I thought about it, but I'll cleaning gutters, blowing leaves off the roof, raking leaves in the yard, and getting ready for the first rain (hopefully) of the...

    It can be done, but you'd have to get permits from 4 states, meet 4 states' regulations, etc. Daytime driving only - dawn to dusk? There might be a driving license requirement, too. I'm assuming...

    Ed Ruzsel's name reminds me of how he led the VHF cheerleading on LongPacs, Farallones, and other races. There was lots of friendly chatter and joking. Most skippers knew each other from attending...
