I'd like to loose weight too, but UNI on an F16 with only about 170'ish lb's to hold it down after 12 knots isn't enough. smile

Flatter cut main. Doesn't buy you a ton, but its enough. I don't know what the wind maxed out at Charlotte Harbor but I completely ran out of downhaul only a few races.


I'm boatless.

Hey PGP, I'm about 165. what's that about 400.
I don't care if you don't, or we can wait until we all get there to see if you can get a lighter crew.

I noticed in pensacola that after my weight loss of about 20 lbs there is a big difference in the need to depower quicker. Think if I am going to do more solo sailing soon I need to get back on the burger and couch surfing plan

Oh yea, my 13 year old daughter who weighs about Rileys weight may sail but she knows nothing about crewing.

It makes no difference to me either as I'm likely to be pretty far back in the pack in any case. Given my druthers I'd pick an adult but your little one is okay.

Count me open for either of you weather permitting. (If the forecast is tornados and sleet, I'm staying home.)

come no matter the weather. If nice we sail, if bad we sit and drink and talk of sailing.

I also have a newphew, 20yrs old, 130 ish, captn. of clemson sailing team that i can hook up with you too. He's all around sailor but w/o cat experience. I told him i'd hook him up if a "heavy" skipper needed light crew. That may work out good for both of you.

Protest? Do tell, I'm sure I'm missing something, but the more boats the merrier I would hope.

Sounds great!

Don't worry about Karl, I sure rum or some such will get me off the hook.

Or, I might just take Friday off and go sight seeing.

I'm having a little difficulty with directions.

Finding Lake Hartwell is no problem but haven't had much luck with Mill Creek Campground.

Anybody?

Milltown campground is just minutes from Hartwell, GA, on GA Hwy 51 (Reed Creek Hwy) 4 miles north, then turn east on New Prospect Rd for four miles and then follow the directional signs to the park.

Pete, it's Milltown not Mill Creek.
