    Default LatePac??

    Hi All,

    As we know, this year's brutal LongPac likely meant that some number of people looking to do the LP as their SHTP qualifier were not able to complete that requirement.

    Has there been any thought about when one might do a LatePac? I'm thinking about October, though first I need to even do my SH Farallones equivalent.

    Thanks

    David

    I'm planning on a latePac around Sept. 9th weather permitting. I't would be nice to sail with a few other latePacr's, to have regular radio check-ins.

    Cool LatePac

    You must have missed some of the previous chats on the subject of qualifying for the Singlehanded Transpac Race. Just go do it. Chech with PhiL MacFarland for further elaboration...........

    Errr, OK. I'm going to try and bag the SH Farallones this weekend. Complete crew no-show for Sarcoma Cup. Long Live SSS!

    I think what "Harrier" means is you don't need to do a SH Farallones first - SHF is only a qualifier to do the LongPac as a race. In fact, you don't need to comply with every jot and tittle of the Long Pac equipment requirements (although in theory they are there for a reason).

    If the weather looks good, I'd take extra food/water etc. and plan for the 400 miles. If all is going well, wave to the great whites at the Farallones and keep going. Just keep a log (forms are on the 2010 SHTP page).

    Hey Ken, did you see your glamour shot on the Half Moon Bay thread?

    Sure did, Bob. Little dirt on the lens, perhaps, making me look older? Actually, Lee said I looked tired when I got in (judging from the picture, I guess since she hadn't arrived yet). Actually it was due to flying the chute all nite to makae sure Max didn't save his time on me, coping with a broken afterguy in the middle of the nite (a first!) and such other mundane preps for enjoying my favorite place on the planet! Came there first in 1978 from Bora Bora and said "this place is much nicer...and American!).
