    Oh dear! Sorry, Max. Thank you for reading my column! Congratulations upon your finish in the race from San Francisco to Kauai in your 30 sailboat which you completed in 15:11:41:02 (fifteen days, eleven hours and change).

    As you know, I have posted on the Singlehanded Sailing Society Forum for years, where I am often corrected gently but firmly. As you do here. Of course, this calls for a formal retraction. The s/v Iniscaw motorsailed up the coast. She did not come up on a trailer. Big difference. Much slower. In big wind? Much more painful. You and Dan should get due credit for that. Here is a photograph of you upon arrival in Hanalei after racing solo from San Francisco. It is always great to see you. (p.s. yes, this response and photo will be in the November Bay & Delta Yachtsman Magazine. There's probably a marketing strategy associated with this).

    Hi Jackie. I also read your story on the SHTP and as usual, you captured not only the details but the spirit of the entire experience. There might be an itsy bitsy, teeny weeny typo where it says the belt buckle goes to the winner. But then when you consider that everyone who finishes the race is a winner then maybe it's right. Your contributions to the SSS are amazing, as is the photo of Max above.

    Thanks, Bill. Well, that was a glitch, wasn't it? However, if anyone else reads the column that carefully, every time you walk into a yacht club bar wearing your buckle(s) you will get even MORE approbation, right?

    Wednesday night there I was waiting around to do the beer can race, talking with Commodore Chris. Harmon Shragge came walking up the D dock ramp wearing his Junior Ranger hat. Big smile, he looked very happy and about 12 years old. Ran over to collect my camera, got these photos and video of Moli and Randall and Harmon leaving for Alaska.

    Randall said Moli will be one of the smallest of about 400 boats on the hard in the yard for the winter. He really likes the people up there, many of whom are homesteaders, some second generation.

    Thanks Jackie for the correction and the cool photo! Mind if I download and use it? Full credit of course.

    And that's a great video of wild and crazy Randall and Harmon. Is that the Byrds covering Dusty Springfield's "Going Back"? I haven't heard that one. I'm most familiar with Nils Lofgren's version on a live album.

    Max, of course you can have that photo! There is one on Norcal Sailing of you with your beautiful smile, Jonathan or Christine took it, but I plan to use this one in the November column because it is mine.

    Got a new mirrorless camera, took it up to Tomales. Thank you to Jonathan Gutoff for advice about what to buy. It's nice up there. Spiritual, that's one way of describing it. Here's a small bit of what I saw: https://vimeo.com//861424848
