    Since it's Thanksgiving I thought I'd take a minute to give thanks to this forum and members to help me accomplish what is one of the most significant projects I started.

    I'll add my thanks to yours to the folks here that were so generous with their time and knowledge. And I'll also say thank you to you, PJ. It was a lot of fun to follow your thread during my own prep for the 2018 race. And if your RTW plans take a little while to come into focus, keep this in mind: The third Saturday of June 2020 is only 577 days away.

    A presentation I did yesterday at the sailing school about single-handed sailing: https://docs.google.com/presentation...t?usp=drivesdk

    I haven't kept a great record of what I sold when I got back home; now that the trailer is sold the cost for this race was $22,600. So my rule of thumb for the race would be $750/foot of LOA. The smallest boat that can enter is 20 foot. So $15,000 would seem to be the barrier of entry. That's with no new sail.

    Oh look ... a Cal-20 for free: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/boa...776074744.html

    There's even a book about setting up a Cal-20 for the SHTP: https://www.amazon.com/Black-Feather.../dp/1440191964

    Hi there,
    I looked everywhere and couldn't find any pictures of the awards ceremony for the SHTP. Would you have some pictures of when I was handed the main award, maybe blowing in the conch shell?

    You blew a conch shell? I left before the party, otherwise you KNOW I would have photos. Email Christine @ Latitude. I’ll bet she’ll have high res images.

    Since my other project is not making much progress, I'm inching at having something to look forward to and overcome the gloom of the daily grind. There's only so much beer can racing can do. Not so unexpectedly, fleeting thoughts of buying a small boat and try to do the SHTP super cheap have been crowding my mind. And so I decided to go through all the left over stuff from my 2018 SHTP, triage and put away things, in the hope that I won't be lured into spending another load of money for ... what?

    Or maybe I'll sail your boat back?

    How cheap? And. Careful what you offer.
