Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice
Cool Giulietta wins!!

first local race of the season, Giulietta crossed with over 7:13 minutes over the second boat. On compensated time we got 3:12 minutes a LOOOONG 1st from number 2nd place boat a 44.7 third was a Gib'sea 414 almost 4 minutes behind.

Only 3 boats in our class. But enough for the "warm up"...we crewd 10.

Nothing important broken, just the rudder bearing came lose, and we almost went into panic..but even with the rudder swinging, she kept flying....and a halyard. Someone will be climbing soon. Lead head, I mean.

Nothing that can't be fixed.

I am happy today

Alex,

I think you need to go up the mast, after all a real leader never has the crew do something he hasn't done first. No need for a bosun chair, just go bare feet, I've seen videos of the South Sea islanders scampering up coconut trees in their bare feet...looked like nothing to it.

You'll have that halyard recovered in no time, and can do it yourself. Be a hero...and report back ...if you can that is.

G- Congratulations! It's a shame you didn't have a REAL classic in your fleet to give you a real race. (Now go get that halyard!!!)
