    Don't ever hear much about keel issues on the Class 40s and yes, a fairly new hull.

    Not sure about this boat in particular but on mine that aft hatch is indeed where the raft is stored. It's bigger though.

    The colors of the 110's here at IYC are fun, and I've only seen a portion of fleet, as many remain under full boat cover. Jackie take note: I see the following boat hull colors: red, bright (all varnish), teal, baby blue, pink, cantalope/peach, light grey, dark blue, gunsmoke, yellow, lime, bumble-bee, white, tan, and half a dozen more I don't know how to describe. Just FYI if you want to take boat photos, we (22) all have to be launched by Monday, 2 pm, and at anchor 200 yards offshore..No haulouts during Nationals. Today, tomorrow, and Monday will be boatyard intensive at IYC, with racing beginning Tuesday at noon down Tomales Bay 1- 2 miles.

    You know my weakness for pretty boats. I'm coming up Wednesday morning. Milly has given permission to set up my tent on the premises. I just got a new coleman blow-up pad for underneath my sleeping bag. Tomales Bay, pretty boats and sailors galore? What a treat this will be! Then I'll report back here. Of course.

    Current conditions on Monday, 8/08 at 1:15 pm on Tomales Bay for Int. 110 National Championships Practice Race are delicious: 12-18 knots of WNW wind right up the Bay, 76 degree water, clear, sunny skies, shirtsleeve temps, 22 boats. 2 practice starts and then Course 4 (two laps W-L). None of the hotshots will likely finish the practice race as superstition in the 110 Class is if you win today, you are jinxed for the Nationals starting tomorrow.

    Fortunately popular favorites Bren and Eric on LADYBUG, red hull, #300, yesterday discovered a weakened beam holding the last, aft bolt on their fore and aft adjustable shroud track. Had this failed, all bets would be off whether the mast would stand.

    If you want to see weather at IYC, here are current conditions being recorded at the end of IYC pier, 125 feet offshore, and 12 feet high https://www.wunderground.com/dashboard/pws/KCAINVER3

    We wish Ants, Philpott, Marilee and Tom, and other friends coming to the 110 3-ring circus save drives to Inverness.

    Significant attrition in yesterday's practice race, held in WNW breeze, 15, gusting 25. OREMUS holed (and now repaired, DOUBLE TROUBLE and NOMODOMA capsized, filled, and were towed home, Bren and Erik broke a jib halyard while tied for the lead with Eric and Blake Bentzen on SHENANIGANs, Annie had a broken tiller extension. Sadly, one skipper is out with a likely dislocated shoulder...Today the first two races. With the prevailing WNW wind from 300 degrees, the windward mark is set ~.5 mile north of Hearts Desire Beach, which is 2.5 miles down Tomales Bay from Inverness YC

    Carnage to starboard! Destruction to port! Who says sailing is a civilized sport?

    Can't decide which is a better description of a 110:
    1) Two overhangs connected by a keel or 2) Like a horse, dangerous at both ends and uncomfortable in the middle,

    After 4 races in the 110 National Championships, Ross Ween of Bristol, RI is first with finishes of 2,2,3,2 and sleddog is second with 4,1,1,4.. Weather has been ideal: WNW to NW winds 10-15 knots.
