Any wayward crews need a skipper for Sat. and Sunday? I'll be around after the A cat event. I'd offer to crew but don't know if I've got it in me anymore.

Too outa shape to pull 'em how I expect them to be pulled. Although I wouldn't rule it out, I'm just better on the other end of the boat.

I do think it is harder to be a good crew than a good driver. Takes more to crew well.

I would rather go with;

the required skill sets are different but no less challenging on either end of the boat. Experience on either end will help somewhat to offset shortcomings on the other but experience on both positions is required to play near the top.

I enjoy working at either end of the boat...it's awesome when it comes together. ;-)

No Nads Tad has retired from competitive sailing, he's into competitive posting.

And then there was 26. Not bad for a weekend regatta.

For some of us it is more the midwinters then a "weekend regatta", by that I mean those of us who come from lands that no longer have soft water this time of the year ;-)

Now, will it be shorts and t-shirt weather, or perhaps I might have to put a shortie on! This canuck is tired from all the snow I have moved around in the past 48 hours!

The cards are in it for me for this Tradewinds. I've just about regained my strength from the flu/stomach bug this weekend and tonight I should have enough in me to dig out the boat and all the ice crusted 8 inches of snow behind my (now depressingly large) gates I built for the Mahal. After the trip into work this morning, I have little doubt it will require engagement of 4WD to break the General from his icy chains...but I only need to get about 30 miles south of home and the freeway should be smooth sailing....come'on Key Largo!

I hate to say this, but the interstates are still impassable thru Atlanta. They hope to have them open by Friday...

Yikes! Glad heading through the armpit of SC - Columbia - is an option! I'm hoping that my showing up at work early today (with only about 10% people reporting) might buy me some additional leniency to hitting the road earlier than planned tomorrow. The ice wasn't quite so bad our way and the freeways are moving today. All the salt and saline they had went on the freeway with more expected to come from Charleston this afternoon - the secondary and back roads haven't been touched and are going to be even rougher tomorrow after a dip into the teens tonight.


....bastard.
