Well it's about that time of year: BFS Cup 2010. Plumbean took it last year for the Easties. Who's going to get the bling this year?

If you've got a great sailing story now is the time to be throwing down here. We will pick and vote in a week or so for the one worthy of the Cup.

Personally I vote for myself. I mean, hell, who sails a tornado and lives to brag about it? That's freakin' legend man.

What you got?

Sailing up to 700,000 years ago? Sailboats of the Stone Age?

So that's where ferro-cement hulls came from!

Man May Have Sailed the Seas 130K Years Ago - Humans may have used boats as many as 130K to 700K years ago

Here's to the Big Freakin' Hominids!

Look At This!!!!

The Gulfies FINALLY take one! Edging out the Easties for the Cup!!!

I've got tears in my eyes. This is such a proud moment.

The voting is over, and I don't think there's any doubt as to who will hold the cup for said Gulfies. It's gotta be CD.

CD, pm me an address to which I can ship the 2010 BFS Cup. I'll even send some 5200 so you can permanently glue it to your cabin top. I know it's a proud moment for you too.

Congrats Gulfies. Congrats CD and family. You guys definitely deserve it.
