    Regarding the Shaka Challenge finishing with the SHTP... was texting with Jerome Sammarcelli this morning, he said the Shaka is ending in Honolulu. What the heck?? Maybe they're not really firm on the details yet.. I went to their website and couldn't find any info about the Shaka except the date.. June 27th.

    Oh, my! Two new boats in one day. This is almost too exciting. That brings the number to 9 (count 'em, NINE) sailors we'll have to scoop up in Hanalei Bay. This summer everyone will be greeted by the drink of choice. With paper umbrellas. That's a promise.

    Here is the magnificent MOUTON NOIR, driven by the no less magnificent Mike Jefferson:

    Default Number Ten: SURPRISE!

    After spending untold millions on his boat, Mr Scottish Accountant doesn't want to pay the extra $50 charge that tomorrow's registration would incur.

    Y'all know that Bill Stange held the fastest elapsed time record for the SHTP for many, many years?

    Welcome back, Bill. That Westsail will be a different ride from your Olson 30! I look forward to meeting you!
