Oh yeah, spinny is going up. First leg no less, not sure about second, depends upon wind speed, last leg is a beat, with maybe two tacks, altho if the wind is out of the SW vs predicted S, then it will be one tack. First leg would be a reach, 2nd a quick spinny run. If SE, the definetly a run first leg straight down wind, reach second leg, third a couple of tacks home. A rue south wind would be the most spinny potetial useage, and best for my asymetric!

We are going to try and meet at the dock jut before 8am, sheryl will be at skippers meeting, kids and I will be setting lines etc up. tart should be 10:05 or 10:10 depending upon number of boats and are placement. Slow boats first, then faster rated boats later. I know we will not be fist out, that will be NFS, then slow FS, probably us with a 203 rating! I'll ty to phone you tonight from home, cell is under boat as of two nights ago when bending over to tighten up the shrouds from adjusting them!grrrrrrrrrrrrrr............
