Hey, binge drinking counts for points too. Just not weighted as heavily as the real deal. Don't want you wasted Easties urping in the cup on game day, you know.

Bingeing Freakin' Sailor.

Hell, if anyone deserves the cup, it's Fredia, my wife, who despite being afraid of big water, held it together on that sail and still had the courage to go forward in that stuff to yank down the Staysail once we got to PT, in the dark! That and she sailed home with me two days later and did radio duty while we joined an SAR for a missing 18 y/o Female diver. Fredia doesn't do radio... Unfortunately, the diver was never found.

WHOOOOAAAA! George is definitely uppin' the ante! This in addition to his Drake's Bay throw down on page 67 - he's a contendaaahhhh!

Looks like we're going to have to start a BFS Cup poll - it's really tightening up here.

In any case, you Westies are just freakin' humiliating the rest of the world.

Three boats ago, I did a lot of sailing in Oct and Nov. I kept the boat at the north end of Camano Island and I used to sail across Saratoga Passage over to Coupville and back when it was really blowing. Once I poked out into Saratoga, I was committed to going all the way across, because it was too darn scary to tack in that weather because I was usually sailing single handed and holding on was all I could do. My son, around four at the time, was usually bungie corded around my waste so I could keep one hand on the tiller and one arm around the winch so we wouldn't fall off. Dad used to go with me now and then. The boat, a Tanzer 7.5 had a set of three lower windows in the hull. They used to go underwater when we were heeled around 60 degrees. This is a picture from one of those trips with dad. Heeled over about 45 degrees by the reading on the compass and by the fact that the window isn't underwater.

I'm a bit of a weenie now. We were out in 30-35 two weekends ago. We had the 140% headsail still on the furler. I didn't pull it out for fear of breaking something. We still made pretty good time motoring with bare poles with the wind.
