Re: Crew wanted for Gov Cup Ches Bay MD

Hi, Bill,

We were having the same exact conversation regarding Promise's PHRF. How in the world does it make sense for a cruising boat that's almost 10 feet shorter (us) owe them time! Heck, her water line is 2 feet longer than our LOA!

Sounds like you and I were at the helm during the same time and weather. This is only my second GovCup but I've done the AYS overnight (R2 to R76 and return) plus 2 Solomons so I'm not a complete stranger to sailing the Bay at night. I agree, the conditions were sporty but they could've been much worse. I tried to stay on as much of a reach as I could through the night but several times I found, at least for us, that we were close hauled for extended periods of time. She's a Beneteau 361 with a furling main and genoa and just doesn't point as well as a conventional main does. Plus, she tends to get overpowered sooner. Rick's installed a new main (with vertical battens) and genny which has helped a lot. Plus, after racing on her for 3 years, we're finally getting the best out of her. :-)

With that said, if you ever need crew for a race that we're not racing in, shoot me a note. I'm always up to crew for a race! :-D
