    I may try the SSS Farallones. Although somewhere back in my memory I recall I never really enjoyed going out there. And we will be in the Delta after the Ditch again but plan on making the rest of the SSS races (except the LongPac)

    My Summer schedule looks like the past few years: OYRA, SSS, BAMA, IYC ocean races;SSS and a few other in-Bay races; and SYC Tues. Nite beer cans. No Delta; I've made my final trip back from over there!

    Besides 2019 SSS and a few BAMA races my new Honu ride wants to try out the Delta. I can finely explore places Lightspeed could never imagine. I do need to start over on my NCORC gear before any ocean races as a lot went with Lightspeed.

    I can recommend the transit from the Gate to SoCal as a shakedown for ocean crossing. Read somewhere recently that would make a great qualifier for the SHTP.

    Dura Mater at least would join the flotilla to Catalina, and with some advance notice one or more members of the San Diego faction of the 2018 SHTP fleet would likely meet you there.

    Me? All the in-the-bay SSS races for one more year. Vallejo, Westpoint Regatta..though I have another chance to play the Rhapsody in Blue clarinet solo on a summer concert that would conflict with the Westpoint Regatta, so we shall see. I've enjoyed the SSS cruise-ins, so will do those.

    I'd really like to do the Plastic Classic in the Piper. Barring that, maybe the Franks Tract Regatta with the Andreas Cove YC in early August.

    All day yesterday it said I was sailing at 0.2 knots and the wind was coming from 180 degrees. All day. Houston, we have a problem...

    Here are a couple photos from aboard the old windjammer. I think I need more line bags.

    I tried to get a pic of you as we passed, up by RYC, but it didn't take.
    Next time!

    I know someone else got a photo and her film should be developed by now. I'm waiting with bated breath!

    Very nice - thanks! It also confirms what I need to do with my jib leads.

    North calls that 3Di jib "white." I thought it was going to be, you know, white. They said 3Di grey is solid grey and darker, and 3Di black is really black.

    So grey is the new white.
