will you be making an appearance at this event Dub?

Who else should we keep an eye on from the left coast?

As to the SSS, I'm headed there this weekend. Nice club and a veritable museum/graveyard of boats from all ages, makes and designs

I missed sailing the Newport event and I've been pouting since. I'll be at Sarasota with Dennis Key driving. I hope that the Glasers will also be there. Will you be coming by, Jay? I think I owe you a cold one...

I may run up there to observe the awesomeness.

Driving the three-legged variety of multihull now (and full-fledged member of dead boat society class), I believe I've gotten too fat/slow for you yutes..

But I can sleep IN the boat (on or off the trailer) so it really cuts down on travel expenses

Nice! Blacked out Viper time? You should con Tomko into attending.

I'm in, hopefully with a trailer load of craw boats.


I'm boatless.

SSS is a great venue. They did a kick-a$$ job on the F18 NA's a couple years ago.

How did you get outside? A tow, or were conditions good enough to sail under that bridge?

When we went outside the conditions were ideal and we went through the draw bridge. Had to be quite the site for the people on the bridge 60+ beachcats stacked up waiting for the bridge to open.

I have some pictures - it was quite the sight - I'll see if I can dig them up.

Not only a small area by the bridge, but some wind and current to keep you on your toes.

We came in via the channel on the south side of Lido Key. Must have done 80 tacks coming up the narrow channel.

awesome. Reminds me of the 'good-ole-days' of steeplechase waiting for the Jewfish Creek bridge.

Anyone know if we get to sail outside for F16s?

As Dr. Dr5e stated, its a long slow sail around the south side of Lido Key if you have to go that way to get out. I'd hope for plan "A".
