    Bob,

    You have sure set the standard for the rest of us. Way to go! My hat's off to you. And nice finishing pic, too.

    I second what Paul said. Congratulations great race Bob. Guess the refit is paying off.

    Hi Bob,

    Congrats from Temerity -- we passed quite close to you about 1/4 nm outside the Bridge, you were looking good -- sorry we had no camera! Outstanding performance in a very tough year. You'll be boring your grandchildren with the tale one day

    Cheers

    David

    Yeah, that was a very impressive sail. Congratulations.

    Did you use your new staysail setup?

    Default Nice sailing Bob!

    Congratulations Bob and all the other finishers! That was a really impressive sail. I hope we can hear some of the details.

    Default Thanks

    Thank you for all the kind comments! Several months ago we made reservations for a family vacation up to Canada (Banff, Alberta). Since free air miles and timeshare points are covering most of the trip, it can't really be changed. Sadly, it means I'll be gone during the awards meeting. I hope someone can record all the stories. My blathering is already posted on a couple sites but I was really looking forward to hearing from the rest of you.

    "Did you use your new staysail setup?"

    Adrian, one more notch up in wind and I would have set the #4 on the new stay. We were doing well with a double-reefed main and jib top though. The JT is a paneled Kevlar sail and pretty bullet-proof. Flogging it would shake your teeth out though! At 125% LP it's more of a blast reacher - tool for the job this race.

    We are changing the date of the awards meeting so Bob can be there. We can't have the meeting without you Bob!

    I will post the new date in a few hours, just need to check on a few things.
