Hope you guys are having fun. Not a cloud in the sky here, about 70 degrees and a nice N breeze around 12 kts

And I'm north of you by about 20 miles (and the water is colder because it's shallow)

Very light wind today. Mike and Tripp are on top of the pile. Great regatta, tomorrow might have better breeze

Had a chance to chat with Brooks a bit about the racing. He said Saturday was very light and shifty, yesterday a little better with some double trap upwind but still some times where they weren't flying a hull downwind. Mentioned that reading the patchy breeze is really tough with the water being so clear and the variation in the bottom color... life is hard. Results for top ten:

Easton/Burd 11
Riccardi/Tebo 19
Christensen/Hoag 24
Prentice/Laroche 32
Marshack/Darrow 35
Reed/Herendeen 37
Humphries/McNeir 52
Tatuch/Barman
Sloan/Sloan 67
Jerry/Punto 69

Had a great time At Tradewinds. Big thanks to Falcon Marine for bringing a boat for us to charter. Awesome boat! Wish we had some more to get things figured out better. They screwed up the scoring for us, but it didn't really matter.

Why no racing on Monday? No wind, or too much? I was stuck up in Auburn all weekend, dealing with horse issues.

No wind. It was glass until noon. Most of us were happy to pack it up, we had some 6 stack trailers to load up.

I think we finished 13th overall, were in 10th on Saturday. Saturday was very light and shifty, downwind there were massive holes. Sunday opened with double wire upwind, we made the right call and kept the power on, plus avoided the rocks at the weather mark. They moved the course another mile offshore and we couldn't get in sync upwind for the rest of the day, plus a few 15-20 degree shifts came through right before the start and hung us out to dry. Oh well, learned a lot, had plenty of fun and the boat is back in one piece smile

Bottom is a mix of sand and rocks...not exactly sure what was at the top mark since we managed to escape unscathed. Pretty sure your boards are OK, at least they seemed fast enough for the rest of racing! If not, I've got a guy that can make them brand new for less than the cost of a quart of 2-part epoxy paint.

I'm not worried about it, it's racing! If you have a chance to send me a quick event report I can add it to what I'm supposed to be getting from the NW contingent.

Same thing happened with the A's before Tradewinds. Never really got sorted.

Please provide more detail (in a PM should you not wish to disclose publicly).

Not that I have a dog in this fight (or any ability to change it)

Was it because I called you Phillip? I can't imagine it was anything else I said, I'm one of the nicest people I know.
