Re: 39th Annual St. Mary's Governor's Cup

Sorry I missed you, we were running a bit late and I didn't have a car with me. Sounds like you guys had a great time on Victoria.

Audrey got smacked around a bit. We had 4 on board and they were light crew, real light. At one point we had a reef in and the #3 up and were still overpowered. Just didn't have enough beef on the rail. We took 9th in PHRF C. We rounded Pt Lookout and set the blast reacher, then set the chute about 1/2 way to the St. Mary's mark. Did everything we could to keep the boat moving in the light stuff, then we rode a nice puff in for the last 200 yds.

What was up w/ the party? Pretty dam lame incomparison to some other's I've been to. Explains why so many dip the line and head straight back the same day. Sad really. I hear they used to be legen-----dary.
