I'm on Midnight Breeze, it's my friend, Rick's, Beneteau 361. You and I probably met at the St Michaels race this past May during the raft up. We were the last boat to arrive before the AYS guys took off. :-)

Duck farts, yeah, we should be so lucky. At least we'll have a nearly-full moon!

Midnight Breeze used to race in PHRF C for that race.
What'd you guys do, go Corinthian Class?

Yep, decided to go Corinthian Class this time and managed to cross the line in second place for our class. I took a look at the corrected times in PHRF C and we would've been in middle of the pack. Rick was also the highest placing Beneteau in Corinthian so he earned some good points for the BenCup. GovCup is next for us.

Good luck to all who are racing Screwpile!

If the "LoCo" in your location means what I think, I'll have to buy you a beer in St. Mary's neighbor.

Sounds like a plan. We can commiserate about the drive to Annapolis!

Screwpile 2014

The Mount Gay is starting to wear off so I can write a little.....

Day 1 was a bust for us. Never even got to the first mark before they called the race for lack of wind. ten minutes after they called the race and the day, we had 5 kts and sailed into Solomon's Harbor. After race 1 was called, we all had a great swim in cool, nettle-free water. So we're DNF for race 1 along with half of PHRF B.

A bit of drama for us 10 minutes before the start when we couldn't unfurl the genoa. We tried easing halyard tension then tensioning. Then there was a bang and everything freed up. A visual using the binoculars showed the snap shackle separated from the genoa head. I went aloft and swapped the snap shackle for a D ring. Made the start in mid fleet. Nice view of the fleet from 55' up.


LESSON LEARNED. The pin from the snap shackle exploded without warning. This why one NEVER goes aloft on a shackle. Always use a know like a bowline or climbers knot.
