    I'm mixed on it.
    When Aeolian was open, we would watch the ball drop as it happened in NY, and then we would all go to bed shortly after 9. It was perfect.
    Breakfast at Island YC the next morning. Rubbing shoulders with the larger tribe, we love Round the Island on NY Day.
    Since I plan to drink more than normal this year, I figured since all the clubs are closed, what was the point? I would stay home to nurse my planned hangover.

    On the other hand, I sort of see Melissa's and IYC's point; that it is important to maintain some traditions, and maybe show them to the greater public.
    I wouldn't mind going out, but not sure if I need to circle the island.
    Pretty sure we won't be near the Park street bridge at either of those times, no matter what.

    Still hiding and watching the weather at present.


    [Note to Bob]: If you do go, stay closer to the PVC pipe side of the Bay Farm channel; the theoretical middle at that spot is shoaled.

    It's hard to be a troglodyte on E dock. In fact, it can be hard to get anything done!

    Which side is the PVC pipe side? With a 6.5' high tide, will the PVC pipes be visible? I should follow a deeper-draft participant - although Surprise! only draws 5.9'

    The PVC pipe is near the first point of bay farm island past the bridge. If you find buoys, stay to the red side of the channel near that PVC.
    encore! draws 5'10"; you'll be fine.

    We will be leaving Aeolian +/- 30 minutes either side of noon, and going clockwise.

    Happy New Year.

    Dura Mater left RYC mid-day, looking for breeze. Surprise! left a bit later. Breeze was found and photos were taken:

    The sailing-on-NYD tradition is intact. Two words: Cocoa Bomb!

    Oooo! Jackie is that a new genoa?

    The "No Skipper" pic is classic. Surprise! is one good lookin' boat.
