Is this what you mean by Ventucky Red?
The district of the city of Ventura California defined as being the home of the white trash that have been displaced from Oxnard.
I looked it up on google as I was curious to know what you are getting at.
You did not mention your crewing vitals.
Yeah that too, glad you pointed that out! Use to live in your area Belmont Heights where I was for about 10 years 300 Block of Termino.
Crew experience, I have skippered a NACRA 5.8, Prindle 18-2 a few times for both the Milt and Tri-Point, and ran the Hardway Race on the 5.8. Also use to run my Classic Prindle 18 out there for fun numerous times.
Not to "feather my cap", buuuutttt, I was the one that pushed PBYC to open the Hard Way and the Tri-Point to Beachcats by unofficially running the Tri-Point showing them that beach cats can do it and they added a beach-cat class to the entire Island Series not just the Milt Ingram Race.
As for F-18 crewing, I may be a little overweight (220 lbs) but have some expereince in running this race.
Any of you guys coming up? They need five boats preregistered or they are not running the class.
BTW - looking for a NACRA F18 if you know of any for sale.
