2011 Governor's Cup

Ok guys, I know there is one other regular Sailnet poster besides me signed up, but there are only 5 boats in Cruising Class.

Sure would like to see some more Sailnetters out there, especially in Cruising Class where we get an earlier start with the other slower boats and can fly asyms which should make it a lot more fun given Augusts typically light air. These changes are new this year and are intended to draw more non-race prepped boat boats and let them finish in time to enjoy the festivities after the race. While attendance is up in the other classes (likely due to rumors of the races demise), I wish there was more support for the cruising class so other distance races might offer such a class going forward.

Come on out and have some fun!

Done a few Gov Cups - fun race and lots of good stories.

Anyone coming from outside Annapolis that needs local support please feel free to get in touch. I can pick up Kattack units for folks and arrange limited inexpensive dockage on Back Creek.

Anyone on a clean and comfortable boat that needs an aging spinnaker whore as crew should also get in touch. *grin*

check your PMs.

Ready to rock. Moving the boat from Solomons to Naptown on the 30th or 31st.
Want to race more boats? Just sign up for PHRF B or PHRF C. We have lots.

Well as a lesson in be careful what you wish for, Cruising Class is now up to 9 boats and EVERY one of them that signed up after me are about 30 seconds a mile faster than me. Doh!

Can you say check the watch for corrected time?

I'm in. Had trouble getting my crew sorted out. A couple of regulars from the last 3 years couldn't make it. One even had the audacity to accept a free week in St. Johns USVI in lieu of sweating on the Bay. Imagine!

We're staying at City Dock Thursday night / Fri morning. Stop by to say Hi.

Final Count is 155. Pretty cool.

I have high hopes for this year. New main from Evolution, new genoa, newish spinnaker, centerboard that works, and the boat's namesake (the Admiral) has finally deigned to sail with us. The planets are aligned.

Any of you guys in PHRF B? I don't see any names that I recognize.

I had the pleasure of meeting up with Sabreman and his wife tonight in Ego Alley as they relaxed waiyinhg for their crew and tomrrows Governors Cup. Their 38 Sabre is a beauty. We were able to hang out for an hour before i had to continue home. NIce meting a fellow Sailnetter who I have corresponded with a few times here. We had a lot in common including Ocean City NJ where I had lived for 18 years. They are nice people.

Hope they come cruising up the Bay again or we get to meet up when we head down to the Ycomico .

Have a great sail tomorrow night and fair winds...I am banking on better than 17 this year,

Dave

Sabre's are among my favorite boats, and I'm in the unfortunate postion of having to try to beat the one racing in Cruising Class.

Did I mention the skipper is the Race Chair and PRO for 30 years?

Not likely, but at least I know who to follow and try to learn from.

It's gonna be fun.
