puddinlegs Went out to the Bank on a very comfy ride. Had a blast even going uphill both ways. Wouldn't hesitate to do it again. A couple of Tartan 10's went out to the Bank as well... now that wouldn't have been so warm and toasty.

blt2ski I guess the what is the definition of "old Shoe"? One of the boats is less tha 5 yrs old, and is a DS Jeanneau, ie Surt that did the two day inshore combo.

But the juan de fuca race, vs the unlimited, not sure the difference, does seem to have "MOST" if not all of the 180 and slower boats, where I would fall with a 192FS, 210 NFS, any longer race I try to go FS where I can.

May have to look that one up. Kids know someone who did that course, I also know someone who did the inside short course too, so will talk with them too.

Faster Three major courses: Swiftsure Bank, Flattery, and Juan de Fuca

The "Juan de Fuca" course is just to Clallam bay and back and is the one that most boats 30 and under take on. You'd do fine on that one. I do believe there are now a couple of shorter still inshore races, on Saturday and Sunday but I thought they were more of less for 'old shoes' to be able to take part and enjoy the ambience of the Swiftsure weekend.

blt2ski Have a question,
Looking at results, it appears that sat and sun were two shorter course races, by the same groups? then there were the single long courses too? Am I reading the results correct for the inshore races. That might be a good option for my 30'r.........

We coined a new TLA (Three Letter Acronym) during the race: SAS or Swiftsure Amnesia Syndrome. Apparently most of the crew swear that they'll never do another one. Then by the time they get home and under a hot shower, they're planning for next year.

Unfortunately, I fell from the cabin top to the bottom rail during the heavier winds (30-35 knots) and hurt my back. Almost went overboard. Very scary. Good news is, it didn't really seize up until we got back Sunday night, so I was sore but able to contribute fully as a crew member (between puking sessions). It was cold, hard work, and tons of fun. Can't wait for next year.
