    Surprise! is planning on it. I might go double-handed this year.

    Like Jonathan said, shorthanders (single or double-handed) race on the Sundays.

    We have enough double-handers for their own division but we could use a couple more singlehanders. Of course we'd rather have lots more, so please sign up and come join us.

    Here's that link again:

    The first race is this Sunday. First warning is 1155 at OC-X. SI's are up and the divisions will be posted on Friday.

    Philpott drove Surprise! today in the first Berkeley Midwinter. In the double-handed "Carl Schumacher" division, we finished second to RYC race guru Fred Paxton and Jennifer McKenna on their Alerion 28 Zenaida. Zenaida can be seen next to the pom-poms on Philpott's lucky hat. Nice drivin' there, Jackie!

    Got cabin fever? Here's the forecast for this Sunday's Berkeley Midwinter: "NW wind around 7 kt. Sunny."

    We could use a few more boats, especially in the Singlehanded division. Please come on out - 35 bucks for one race or enter the series (you've only missed one race).

    I'm racing double-handed with my 2010 SHTP Co-Chair!

    Here you go.

    After a long postponement we got in a short race. The forecasted 7 knots was more like 4-5 knots but they got the sunny part right - it was quite a lovely day.

    Rob enjoyed getting Surprise! around the course in the light breeze:
