    Not much room for hope! The 150 are there!... Just asking about Round the Rocks and if the registration gets the same way! But I can just keep training and learning for next fiasco!

    Fair and fun winds for you all!

    ( If there is a need for help at the comite, happy to volunteer)

    Did you mean to re-open the Corinthian Race registrations? Entries are up to 163 now.

    Huge fleets work with the drawn-out 3BF starting sequence, but not so much with normal sequences. And I guess we're back to combining SH with DH?

    Whoa! Slow fat Dura Mater in the same race as Shadow? In the same Raccoon Strait as Shadow? I looked it up: " [Extreme 40s] have a top speed of about 40 knots (74 km/h; 46 mph) and can sail at about 35 knots (65 km/h; 40 mph) in 2025 knots of wind ..." The Moore 24/Pirahna fleet of doublehanders is one thing. Two people on an Extreme 40 is a whole 'nother extreme. This will be interesting.

    Also, is Michael Chammout commodore at Corinthian YC now?

    That's too true, Alan. But Synthia doesn't barge the start. She doesn't have to. And she's very sensitive about the way she hightails it into the future ... and beyond. With a smile over her shoulder to the crowd.

    I'm also never around when she throws up that spinnaker. Maybe they'll change the course so the singlehanders circle Blackaller last and she'll get to do it again ... Ms Eyrie? What say you?

    I say that I would very much encourage the RC to separate the SH & DH fleets. And it seems a reasonable option to send one fleet to Blackaller first and the other fleet to Blackaller last.

    Some January and earlier paid members were shut out due to the short window and 150 cap. We made a few openings available for them knowing some attrition will occur by the Skipper's meeting. Nothing worse than selling more opera tickets than seats.

    Attention NON members who would like to race Corinthians Feb. 27 without becoming a paid season SSS member, we invite you to register single or doublehanded starting Monday a.m., Feb. 15. Sixteen spots available until the adjusted 180 cap is reached.

    If you don't have one, remember to get your PHRF certificate at YRA or BAMA asap. That's a requirement by the end of Feb. 24, same day as Skipper's Meeting.
