    Default Friends from the 2018 Transpac

    Here's a photo sent by John Colby s/v Iris racing with Mount Hood in the background. That is Iris with the red white and blue spinnaker.

    Nice picture! It's certainly a different view from Kauai with that impressive white-topped hill in the background. Thanks for passing it on, Jackie.

    Dennis Maggard s/v Pamela, drove up from Palo Alto last week so we could share lunch at the local taco truck. It was a bit disconcerting to see him emerge from a Prius rather than a Crealock, but I recovered. We talked about Hanalei Bay and the SSS, among other, more trivial things. I was reminded of this bit he wrote, and thought it might be of interest to those pondering 2020, which is, according to Lee Johnson, only 574 days away.

    Here's a real short video from John Colby up on the Columbia River. It looks cold up there:

    Default Carliane Sighting

    Due to popular demand, I tracked down Carliane at the Berkeley Marine Center today. She has spent about nine days there putting her boat back together since returning from The Race. Kynntana is now "ready to go again", she says. What does that mean, you might ask? Well, you will have to ask Carliane that yourself. Here she is wearing her belt buckle, looking relaxed and happy.

    Ha, ha. Thanks, Jackie, for tracking me down. I think I've been in a funk for a myriad of reasons the past 6 months. Finally K and I are ready to sail! I do feel relaxed and ready to get back out 'there' again (and answer some long overlooked emails). You all are so awesome. I can't wait to see everyone at the next race 🙂 Here's K with her new slick bottom and fast racing stripe.Name:  IMG_20190128_165234.jpg

    Oh my goodness, where is everyone? I've got 38 feet of new water line and nicely making way on a bay by myself except for a sail boat under motor and a small fishing boat. Wow, this feels so nice!!!!
