That was a deal breaker. On his boat it would be like putting curb feelers on a Ferrari.

Now the winds are forecast to be 15ish from the NE...downhill run all the way most likely. That would make for a very exciting (and quick) trip out of it!
16 hours???? Holy crap - that's smokin'!

It looks like the boys and I will help a buddy that I usually crew with deliver his boat back to Galveston after the race. Hopefully that wind shifts a bit for the return!

It'll be the boys' first time out. We're looking forward to it.

Good luck. It's a great race! I'd love to be out there with you guys!
