Well thought out polite posts will be ridiculed and dismissed. If you haven't had at least one adult beverage of your choice come back later once you have been properly prepped.

Tomorrow the forecast threatens to be soft so you fly weight bitches better get your little points early instead of sitting on the beach holding hands and giving each other soft gentle kisses. Yes Ricky and Karl I'm looking squarely at you!

Howdy Ding and All!

We have about fifteen - boats offshore in the distance race. Winds are west at 8-10 going to the NW.

Beautiful day in Sarasota. Randy and Jamie are finally getting to sail together after ten years...Ron White and Mike Fahle are driving Lovell and Ogletree's former Tornado with racks, and Mike McGarry and Don Wigston are trying to foil. The Roberts 27 and 30 are in the Gulf with the Stilettos and Corsairs.

Pressure will be coming up this weekend, with a weak front slipping through. SSS is an awesome venue, and the CA boats are already here along with the right coasters.

Best of Luck to the multihull leaders at the US Sailing meeting. I'll try and get some video footage for y'all.

Merry Sailing,
Bert

Ding, I hope you brought your A-game this week. You don't need to worry about the young punks on the water. Sharing a house with me is going to take a toll on your liver....

That would be too much work, we'd be switch the cam out too often. Come on THart, fire it up pretend you still get your boat wet.

Not in the budget and couldn't find a sponsor, but my liver is with you in spirit.
Sell my C-2 for me and I'll get you a handle of rum.

Less weight, perhaps?

New foiling strategy?

Some pressure, but lots of holes today.

It was a short line and good starts were necessary to stay in control of your lane.

Ricky and Dalton are in the lead, with Gunnar in second. Sandra and Alex are up there, so are Luke/JC.

Karl/Beth are sailing well, and so are Laura and Ding.

Katie and I ate an OCS on race 3, along with the 3 other boats that tried to roll me.

Jake broke a rudder pin on the 2nd race and retired.

Rumor is that we will be racing offshore tomorrow with 5 mile legs - should be fun finding a white mark, that far up course, and no GPS allowed...

Cheers, Mike

This is the F18 America's ... right? Like North and South America?

Was wondering how this team got an exemption:
Gunnar Larsen
Ferdinand van West
1785
Den Haag, Zuid Holland
Watersport verbond


USA 777

Owning NACRA probably didn't hurt.
