Thanks for the updates Ding. Keep up the good work.
Oh yeah, if you keep practicing that body drag ,you'll be barefoot skiing in no time and you'll be a "bunch ahead" of everybody.
p.s. How do you get an 8/ocs like your carbon buddy? Just curious, I assume it's a scoring error.
p.s.s. Have a couple of rummies for me.

I'm not sure what the story is with the 8/OCS maybe it's some kind of "I'm sailing a heavy boat allowance" :-)

I'll get the skinny tomorrow, I'm sure it's some kind of scoring error.

Tomorrow is promsing to be sporty again. The seastate here at 15 and above is a pain in the butt.

Someone mentioned it was a bit like lake sailing today... Sure if lake sailing has current :-) For those not used to sailing in current, it does change your game plan a bit.

Having a great time and well worth the 26 hours of driving an the 4 hours it took to get through New York :-) The chowda and lobsta alone is worth the trip.

Hopefully this post is readable, I may have had a rummy

Just keep telling yourself... Current is my friend...

That's what we teach the Opti kids. Those that listen tend to smoke those that don't.

Current certainly would explain some of the odd-looking tracks.

I'm also sure that the 8/OCS is a scoring error. Some of these programs will allow you to add letters without necessarily calculating automatically/correctly, depending on how they're programmed (so you can be creative with your penalties). These programs are written with really, really wide user requirements (to say the least).

Mike, current is my friend and so is a nasty seastate (that's right Ricky, grandpa aint scared), these are new experiences for me and I'm freaking loving it, even though I'm getting my a$$ confidently kicked and will never hear the end of it from the carbon fiber wonder boy. Still having an awesome time talking sh!t and busting balls. That's right, you don't have to win to talk sh!t.

It's time for sleep grandpa is tired.

It's starting to rain here, and the forecast for today has changed and is now looking like it will be a repeat of yesterday.

In that case, I think we'll go with this today.

Tracking is really flaky today - boats dropping in and out, lots of buffering . . . buffering . . . buffering. It's almost unwatchable.

I might actually be productive today.

Another start - lots of boats at the signal boat, not so many at the pin. Right side must be favored big time.

Is Reiss driving with Nigel calling the shots?

Nigel drove Tues races 1, 2 and 3. Reiss drove Wed races 4, 5, 6 & 7. Plan for Thursday was for Nigel to drive, but can't confirm until they are off the water.

Looks like some top players got in a bad hole or something on Race 9, which just got posted.

Tracking was OK at this start, but now it's on the fritz. I refreshed and only see 9 boats...

Looking at the scores, lots of ugly stuff in the Top 10:

Sergio, DNF and DNS, yuck!
Merrick BFD and a 21
Glasers OCS
JC got a 10!

Top 3 looking much tougher to crack, but anything could happen with 2.5 days to go!

Refreshed again, all boats online, JC out front at A...
