Yes, I have to realign my priority now, I am getting old, children already have their wings, money is not as important. There are many things I need to do before I can't do no more.

In my last three deliveries, I was helping older owners to get their boats to places they want. They were all too old to sail by themselves even with their SO on board. That sucks. I don't really want to follow their step.

I want to sail now while I am still capable.

Many things to do, to learn, and to get ready before the race.
Thank you
You ******* rock. Fair winds.

Now for the really bad news. The owner just sold his turbo 70...but the good news is that he was able to charter a Cal 25 with pretty good sails.

Congrats....

Glad to hear you've made your choice. Transpac is pretty awesome. One of my dock mates Ronnie Simpson, raced a Moore 24 in last year's single handed transpac and came in first in his class. He's shooting for the Vendee Globe, now.

Capt. Simpson has come a long, long way since his first ill-fated voyage to Hawaii.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

There are always openings in the return trip. I already put my name on the list. The owners are too busy make money.

Thanks for the name, i watched his videos, very impressive. Good example of a sailor that I want to become. May be I am too old for it, but I always to learn from him.

Re: I had a bad day, I need a hug or will kill someone

The way I see it (and I've used this excuse successfully) you had an existing contract in place prior to notification from the court. The contract should take precedence. A polite letter to the appropriate parties, to that effect, should take care of the problem, perhaps accompanied by some sort of documentation of your prior commitment. I'm not a lawyer but I am a small business owner. In my experience, judges are reasonably sympathetic to existing legal obligations, especially if you are not one of the primary parties involved.
