    So, Drake's Bay didn't work out so good, as I stubbornly waited until 5PM to pull the plug on Saturday, with 20 miles of motoring before anchoring in DB well after dark.

    6824

    Saturday at 1700 I still had 20 miles to go, with 2 kts (maybe) SOG, so the math said motor. For a time, the fleet of 8 "still in-it-to-win-it" were pulling away as I motor-sailed pass...

    We can use the eating utensils on Eyrie, I've got everything necessary and they are still clean from when I returned from the SHTP in 2006. But my sparker thing has rusted so I'll pack a fresh one.

    It's been awhile since I've made padded underbelly winch covers, so I remember the results but I don't remember the process. I'll be happy to raft-up in Drakes Bay for a look. Maybe I'll even bring...

    I say that I would very much encourage the RC to separate the SH & DH fleets. And it seems a reasonable option to send one fleet to Blackaller first and the other fleet to Blackaller last.

    At what point does waxing gibbous transition to waxing crescent (at 50%?), and where does 3rd quarter fit into it all? My guess is that waxing crescent and 3rd quarter refer to the same moon phase.
