    I would notice. That's our start!

    Okay, it's time to do it again. Winter fun for singlehanders, since 2015!

    The Berkeley Sunday Midwinters usually include double-handed and singlehanded divisions. This year there are plenty of DH'ers signed up to have their own start, but we could use a few more singlehanders. The first race is this coming Sunday.

    The RC sets the divisions based on entries received through tomorrow (Tuesday the 7th). So please sign up now using the link above. Thanks!

    Will be a tight day with the Sunday race on top of the SSS awards..... unfortunately likely both Feb dates would have conflicts so that's a bummer. However I went ahead an entered to hopefully get the Singlehanders their own start and attend when possible.

    All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it is vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.

    I don't know what Greg does with that boat, but she just lights up when he sheets in the jib. And what was this? A new deep blue, almost purple spinnaker? Wow. Wish I'd been able to take a photo, I was busy just trying to keep up!

    I think you nailed the start on that one.

    Thanks for the compliments!

    You didn't see, (or did you?) the kerfuffle at the start.
    The jib jammed in the pre-feeder and wouldn't hoist.
    Almost drifted back into the committee boat!

    I think you, Bob and I all tied for second, after Outsider.
