    Bud Cassidy Sept.19, 1928-August 16, 2022

    Long time best friend, "Big Guy Up Front" on HOLIDAY TOO, Star 3497, 1960-1962. Bud was a San Francisco Bay sailor and raced his 110 #335 in the 50's with his beloved wife Ann on Bay waters before the era of dacron sails, trapezes, and spinnaker launchers. During our prep for the recent 110 Nationals, Bud would regularly call to give coaching tips and remind me how they used to pack the spinnaker in a peach crate and crawl to the 110's narrow bow to secure it in place for hoisting. Bud was the Best and I will miss him dearly.

    It opened fine, Skip and that was right down to the wire! Congratulations on your tactics.

    Drakes Bay Races. Congrats to OUTSIDER, BOTTLE ROCKET, CHANGABANG, and ARCADIA for sticking it out and finishing inside the 10 pm time limit, despite light and variable with limited viz.

    Results? Pt. Reyes not always user friendly geography for the Inverness YC RC and friends to finish, or start a race. But again they met all challenges... and thanks to Milly and her team of Ben B., Chris L., Synthia P, Bill P, and others unnamed who assisted during the afternoon, late into the evening, and again this morning.

    Results you say? They will come...First, what happened to the results while our heroes were on station? There may be more than one correct answer.

    1) Synthia's dog Rreveur ate them 2) they were accidentally burned while starting a small BBQ outside Ben's lean-to shelter east of the Chimney Rock trail. 3) they accidentally blew away in the fresh southerly and scattered to the wind, down the hill, and into the poison oak. 4) A can of epoxy accidentally tipped over in the back of the truck enroute to the Chimney Rock parking lot, soaking the satchel and pages in stickiness. 5) In the dark, finish times were entered, but not always in the correct columns. 6) Jibeset's multiple entry passwords were misplaced..7) Results were delayed while an unreported boat was located, her skipper happily baking sticky buns in the warmth of the cabin while at anchor. 8) Sailing Instructions stated the finish cutoff deadline for Saturday's Leg 1 to Drake's Bay was 9 pm Sunday.

    The Ouija Board was dusted off to sort out the options. It showed options 1, 3, and 4 were likely answers. Thanks to tje race committee. Wish I was there!

    Thanks, Ants! Good to see you at Kilkenny Beach on Tomales Bay, Pt. Reyes. One never knows where Ants will be next....And yes, one of your three Ouiji Board guesses as to why the Drakes Bay results were briefly in jeopardy is correct. Answer 3 did happen. And there are four more correct answers if anyone wants to guess... List all 5 correct answers from 8 possibilities on post #5075 and you win the quart of Macapuno at CBC's Summer Trophy Presentation. Try as many times as you wish.

    Questions about the wording of the cut off time in the SI's?

    I was extremely curious where the dedicated RC was going to spend the night.
