Re: SMCM Governor's Cup

We tried squeezing between a boat ahead and Chancellor Point and didn't make it. I join the elite ranks of skippers that have run aground within site of the Dove.
Dude, you're too hard on yourself. We were aggressive. Say that ten times.

We met adversity and prevailed when we could have given up. Say that twenty times.

Seriously, It was a fantastic ride and getting unstuck was a highpoint for me - no wind, no engine, no way to get an anchor any distance from the boat (too many jellies) but we did it.

Sailing close hauled from 0100ish to 0230ish with 15kts AWS, well balanced sails, with stars, the Milky Way, shooting stars, and phosphorescent jellies, was priceless. Thanks for having me.
