I definitely want to do the race. I was planning on doing it last year and missed out due to a last minute work crisis. Had crew and everything lined up. We have a new genoa this year and want to do a long race with some air. We've sailed Gov Cup 2 years in a row and it's such a light air race that we get killed. We eventually want to do Annapolis-Newport.
Do you have dates for his year? I have two other things that may conflict (Marine Corps 1/2 Marathon and a work trip).
If I can't afford the time to get my boat to Annapolis and home from Hampton, I may ask to tag along on someone else's boat for just the race.
