Yep. I remember a real drifter - the SMSA Sharps Island Race I think - that drove that home. We had all the weight to leeward and one light weight person handing up sandwiches and beer. NO ONE moved for fear of slowing down the boat. We'd been chasing one boat for three or four hours during which we gained about 10 feet over a mile or so. Suddenly their sails dropped, engine started, and they spun around. Waving as they passed us heading back to Solomons they shouted "we ran out of beer!"
sail fast and eat well, dave
