Schooner Race Rant

I was thinking of the Gloucester race. I know this might not be everyone's opinion, but as someone with a slower boat ----- 36' in a 45' class, I figure I don't have a chance in hell in a reach/reach race with no handicap. That is all about the start and boat speed with a mark rounding or two. I personally wouldn't mind having a short windward part of the course, since outfoxing someone is the only way I could win.

The attached article concerning the future of the schooner Ernestina appeared in the Standard-Times on Wed., Jan. 11.

Survey

I've been thinking about adding blogging functionality to this site, and have a test version up and running (for myself only at this point). For the benefit of those who are not familiar with blogging: a blog is an online journal, a place for a user to post about topics of particular interest to him- or herself.

Bring Salty Peanuts

The Pre-Annual Meeting Musical Gathering is in dire need of good salty peanuts, like those beauties you can only find in VA.
