Re: Too hot to sail...

Auspicious Dave raced with me last night, in the heat and humidity of the Chesapeake.

At first, I chided my crew on the ridiculous amount of beer that they onloaded. I retracted my comment a little while later. Whew. National Bohemian tastes pretty darn good when it's that hot, and you're that thirsty.

I also bought a 5 gallon collapsible water bag to store in the ice box so that we could have cold, fresh water.
