Last minute mention I know, but is anybody coming up for this? Great fun beating up on the monos, and this year you can square off against a Seacart 30!

Right now I'm looking at the all the junk in the Bay from the storm. Amazing amount of very large stuff everywhere. There's a line of junk all around the mouth of the Magothy. Hope that stuff's cleared out before next weekend.

The attendance is looking to be pretty light on beach cat front this year...

I'll take the TheMightyHobie18 w/Spinnaker down the bay if I can leave it at WRSC or elsewhere Friday night...

I gotta believe we can make a spot either at WRSC or at the Church St. lot for you. Come on out. A TheMightyHobie18 with spin would the ratings boat to win!

There's a beach at the end of Bay Ridge Rd that overlooks "R2" and is only a mile or so away. We have staged out of there previously ... the only hitch is the is NO PARKING there so you need be able to come by, throw your gear out, and the vehicle must leave ....

you may wish to check it out ...

When we've done that we kind of had "permission" from some people that lived there (just that they wouldn't turn us in...). Last couple of times we've just left real early and sailed out from Galesville. Makes for a longer day, but hey, you're out sailing.

Keith, do you have to be a CBYRA member and/or U.S Sailing member to register? They aren't letting me without those numbers and I sure as hell ain't paying no additional race fees driving my cost to do this one event to $150...

I'm not a member of either and have registered through them numerous times. I hope you registered for the Hammond race back on Sunday too.

I didn't, no crew for Sunday so I'm taking the boat back to my house or back to Annapolis Saturday depending on the wind and if my boat stays in one piece.

Abandoned, didn't make it to the start in time. Followed the fleet to the choptank and decided to continue to cove point. It was a reach down the bay so we were back at my house at 2:30pm, going up the chop tank looked slow and we already found out we are slow upwind against current.

There is a lot of crap out in the bay, we were screaming and hitting crap all the time, fortunately everything stayed together.

Choptank was slow going! I was amazed at the amount of crap floating in the Bay. We were successful in avoiding almost all of it, had to stop to clear some big stuff off the boards a couple of times. Bruised the leading edge of a rudder. Thankfully a lot had cleared out for Sunday. Seacart 30 was the boat to have this weekend!

Fixed it proper, too! I'm now torn, Gunboat or Seacart? Maybe one of both, for slightly different purposes when the whim hits. Looking at the elapsed, on both days the Seacart finished 13 minutes faster than us. I figure that means one of you faster guys would have given it a run for its money!

Cover of the new Spinsheet has one our N-20 brethren from the Oxford start. Finally got a cat on the front, we hit the big time!

SpinSheet October Issue Cover

Direct link to the cover. For those not familiar with the race, it was the Annapolis start to Oxford (31 miles). In the background is Thomas Point Light. This is an annual race of over 130 boats, some years in excess of 180. Fleets are started with 5 min intervals and the beachcats are released last....over an hour behind some of the fleets. Typically, line honors is a challenge between the beachcats, a 72 foot sloop, a couple A0 Perf, and now king of the bay a Seacart 30 trimaran.

TAYC in Oxford puts on a great party that is followed with a Sunday race back out the bay towards Annapolis...about 20 mi.

Nice photo! Time for me to get a real spin boat up here so I can actually give Keith and the Seacart 30 a run for their money. Anyone have a used F20c for sale?!?

Krantz can hook you up if you really want a F20c used.
