    The fiberglass strut off the back of the masthead is called a backstay flicker.
    You can find them on Melges 24s and the B-25 Akumu.

    Fair winds Cliff!!
    Wishing You and Rainbow have a fantastic voyage!

    All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it is vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.

    All the best to you on your offshore adventure to the South Pacific on Rainbow. I would see you off under the Gate but it's kind of a long way from San Diego. I look forward to following your tracker. Fair winds.

    Hey Cliff! So glad I decided after months away to pop in here and see what's going on. My Pac Cup crew will heading to Berkeley Marine Center this Saturday at 10:30 to weigh Kynntana and then we are planning a fun sail. We'll head to the gate to see you off. I'll monitor 72 if you feel like checking in. Hope to see you off!!! Have a great sail and see you when you get back!

    Cliff Shaw seems to be west of Baja. While Rainbow is not (ahem) a particularly fast catamaran, it seems to me that she is making good time. Not fast, not slow.

    I sailed over to visit Cliff, see him off, last Friday. Leaving Emeryville later in the afternoon was a terrible mistake, though. The channel leading into and out of that Marina is narrow and I had to motorsail straight into the slot in 16 knots of breeze. Water just sloshed over DM's bow, drenching me. Then, when I reached the end of the two mile long channel I still had to beat up and around the remnants of the Berkeley pier. Very wet boat. Very wet me.

    Still, it was nice seeing Cliff off. He says he'll be back in October.
