He liked going over that jetty. I followed him once, but figured it wasn't that much faster considering the risk of being in the trough instead of on the crest and avoided the temptation after that.Plus it terrified my crew.
Not only was he quiet when I sailed with him, but when he did talk it was a whisper. If I said "what' once I said it 10,000 times.

Jabber is distracting. Racing is about the only time I shut up.

And what's even more amazing is that I don't think he ever looked at tide info. I couldn't believe what we had just done and was just getting over the shock when I realized there was a second side coming up quickly. There was dry rock between and on either side of the hulls...we couldn't have had more than 12 inches of water under the hulls and that was only because he had timed a wave right.

I remember that Jake. I watched you go in there and thought you/he were crazy. I went around. Popped out the other side and you guys had a nice lead. I didn't like that much and would never try to put my boat through there.
