    OK, Iím in (and back). I donít have any crazy weather routing software, but given the revised start time, and that this is a deliver (i.e. letís not break anything), I say 47 hours 45 minutes dock-to-dock.

    So here's another prognostigating question for the bunch: how far will we be along our journey when we toast the gods at 2222?
    As some know, 222 is a special number in my life. You can be sure at 2.22.22:22 tomorrow there will be a toast to a special boat: Here we are approaching Hanalei in the 1978 SHTP.

    Please tell. Is there a story of how you chose 222?

    Yes, in the top photo, the original brown (yarn temper) main was a used Cal 28 main I bought for $100 in 1975. The sail # was 18222, but the sail was much too long on the boom. I cut 2' off the leach to make it fit, and with it the "18" went away, leaving me with 222. Seemed fitting, as I grew up sailing on our family L/36 #2.

    If you need your masthead worked on, CBC may be the only West Coast Boat Club with a 100 foot extension ladder on speed dial.

    New Bets:
    Jackie = 10 pm tomorrow, Wed. Feb. 23
    Ants = 9:21 pm Wed. Feb.23
    SK and cat= 8:09 a.m. Thurs, Feb.24
    sleddog = 10:46 a.m. Thurs, Feb.24
    Dazzler = 3:59 pm Thurs. Feb.24
    BobJ = 5:51 pm, Thurs, Feb. 24

    UPDATE: ENVOLEE departed RYC slip at 4:14 pm and at 5 pm is transiting Raccoon Straits westbound. https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais...37.891/zoom:13

    Current local wind at Monterey Bay Buoy 46042 is 20 knots from 310.

    UPDATE: at 7:45 pm ENVOLEE has "20 knots TWS and 110 AWA with reasonable sea height and direction" as they head south at 8 knots. Looks like SK's cat has the inside nibble for finish time winner.

    OK, what's this all about? Is there a contingent casual-racing down the coast?
