Make sure you catch it all: fri night at the HYC - party it up and then walk into town for dinner; the tent party on Nantucket Sat night, the joke tent on sunday and the great general boating "scene" in the boat basin.

One thing is guaranteed. 25 knots at the start dying to zip halfway across the sound.

Are you in the spin class?
Amazing how often it is 20+ at the start, although I can remember some races where it has stayed that way. I am scheduled to go but discovered last night that my jib has a rip in it. Hoping to get a band-aid on it in time to go. Should be a wet ride from Newport to Hyannis on Friday. But always a fun race and weekend.
