Re: Near miss on Lake Michigan

Yes a Rhodes 19. The spinnaker was not rigged, the bag was floating and the sail working its way out. There's a frostbite fleet of R19s in Boston that sail all winter...

My bet, someone had to chose between dropping a beer to pop the mainsheet, or saving the beer, and made the wrong choice for April.
