    Are you new to SSS? If so, welcome! Do you have your boat in the bay area?
    I like the "avoid the hurricanes" part. Let's do that please. Let's avoid the 45 Knot tropical depressions too. Can we just have 3 days of gale alley followed by 9 or 10 (or ,in my case, 12) days of warm and glorious bright blue weather sailing in 15 to 20 knots? Great...thank you.

    This makes the thought of doing a repeat of the LongPac almost bearable!

    Pacific Cup, Vic Maui, even R2AK all have their 2018 start dates posted. We are going to do this in 2018, right? 98 days left in 2017.

    Would love for this to be posted! I check several times a day to see if it's been posted.

    I will send this again as the last attempt may have failed
    The start date is June 22 to align with tides and events at CYC and NYC. The clubs at both ends. More info will appear in the NOR.

    I heard there was a superstition regarding starting a journey on Friday.
    Don't know what or why.

    Thought I read somewhere on this forum about a Saturday start, 23rd?
    Sure would make it easier for family and friends to see us off.
