TAK- The party was great!!!! they had this drink called a sea nettle...needless to say after acouple of those and some mt. gay rum and 45 min of sleep the night before i was a happy camper.
ZZ4gta, Sabre- Thanks that was my first big race and finished in 12h 42min 30s. Its gunna be hard to top that experience. Inspite of being the slowest boat in our class by alot we almost beat the farr 11 straight up, but the last three miles killed us with no wind(Meridian has a phrf of 21 and the next closest was 0) . We had good wind (about 14 knots) from i would say 2130-0230and also had good wind after we rounded point lookout until about 3 miles to the finish when the wind completely died. im looking forward to sailing that race in the future if im lucky. it sucks that you guys had to turn on your motors AND missed the party. ZZ4gta well with all of those misshaps and equip failures i hope you still had a good sail and lots of beer on board.
