Your post made me remember a very light air race a few years ago. We were chasing a boat a hundred feet ahead of us and gaining inches. All of a sudden their sails came down, the engine fired up, and they turned around headed for home. On their way past us they shouted "we ran out of beer." DNF *grin*

sail fast and eat well, dave S/V Auspicious
