That does sound exciting! Are you going to be in this season? If you get an itch to sail down to Racine, let me know. We''ll be up in that general area in late July, post-Hook Race. We''ll wave as we''re racing...hopefully we''ll have good breeze and we''ll just be a blur.
I am bound and determined to sail more and more independently this summer. I didn''t start sailing until I met my husband...he''s been doing this forever. I''m relatively new at this, though. He''s going to do some off-shore races on our previous boat (we co-owned it with a friend, who has agreed to let my husband race on weekends in exchange for storage and help), which frees up our current boat. I''ve got this great plan to race that one (I don''t expect to go very fast!) with my own crew. I don''t care if I come in DFL...I think it''ll be good experience.
Phew! I''ve rambled enough.
