Also check out Sailing anarchy. Lots of racers, but not sure how many are doing the gov cup. There's a thread about a party at the docks saturday night. BYOB. I'll be there w/ my crew, probably hammered.

I'll be there. It's our first time for this race. Should be fun as long as we have wind. I'm bringing along a couple of ringers to help us OFG's (Old Fat Guys)

kai - Congratulations! We didn't do as well, placing 15th in PHRF B.

It was our first try at this race and only my second race in 20 years (we're confirmed cruisers). We had a pickup crew of friends, family, and two go-fast racers that I know. Our sails are old, and the boat hates light air. That said, we decided to stick it out after we were becalmed at about 0400, planning to wait until it was physically impossible to finish in the 21 hour limit before turning on the motor. We ended up finishing with 20 minutes to spare. It was a great ride with almost every condition from flat calm to 30 kt in the morning thunderstorm. The boat hit a record speed of 8.6 kts with main and cruising spinnaker (maybe higher, but that's what my nav software recorded - I love GPSNavX). The most frustrating part was being becalmed for the second time and taking 2 hours to travel the last 5 miles. I was also frustrated because we saw 3 boats poling out their jibs with boat hooks - a clear rules violation.
