will the start/finish lines remain the same? Why not move start/finish to Gilberts? The fixed bridge will make the start interesting but by no means impossible (probably neat for photos, too) and could reduce PRO logistics?

Personally I think a start at Gilbert's would be a bad idea. Depending on the wind and tide it could get damn unfriendly in Jewfish Creek with the boats tightly packed and demanding their rights.

Yeah, it would be a huge traffic jam. If the start were near the Caribean club, you would have a little run before you are funneled into the Jewfish Creek.

Thanks Rick & Mary!
Anyone going to be there on Thursday? I'm going to be there tomorrow night but crew isn't flying in until Friday so I won't be able to set up the boat.

You can't set the boat up without your crew? Seriously?

You old guys are just plain mean! I can't wait to beat you guys this weekend... Jake and tawd are just scared to come.
I always rig my boat by myself... but even ding can attest to how nice it is to have my big dumb animal of a crew to get the mast 7 feet in the air to raise it.

Todd, I have a feeling you're going to break something and not do so well in this race...just saying.

(remember the jinx you threw on me when I started the Harvest Moon Race?)

I KNOW you're not calling sweetness a big dumb animal,otherwise I expect Ding to kick your a$$ on and off the water.
