(upper keys), AJAX and CARYSFORT LIGHTS NOT LIT

FYI, we just finished the Ft Laud Key west race, friday,

and in the upper keys, the Ajax, and Carysfort lights were NOT LIT,

noting in the skippers meeting or NOR, about that... we were pretty surprised!

Thanks for the heads-up! BTW, how did you place? Are they still handing out the transponders (SPOT) fixes to all the boats?

Re: (upper keys), AJAX and CARYSFORT LIGHTS NOT LIT

we ended up 4th in class. (out of 5) -suxs... (beat by Grand Cru Bene 393 by 5 min) (I was on Vendaval)

we got killed near sombrero light (sailing away from the mark on a bad wind shift), and from the Key west sea bouy to the finish... that took us 3 hrs...

we were just too small and light for the final heavy conditions.



yes they used SPOT. -I think its more of an average, since I know were were doing over 7 knts (COG) when it had us in the 6's... (near ajax/ carysfort) -where I was driving... (and got passed by the bigger boats).
