Anyone have a cruising spinnaker / Asym they can loan me?
Well if you guys are gonna do it, I'll just have to HTFU and find a way to make it happen for Palmetto Moon also.

Re: the tracker units, reading the SI's it looks like you are correct that we have to buy the App and use it during the race. Based on what they posted on Facebook when I griped about the tracker situation it sounded like Kattack had changed their business and just flat didn't have the units anymore. The sailing instructions say trackers "as supplied" are required. I suppose lowering the entry fee and requiring us to buy an App equates to "supplying" the tracker.
