HELP...My senior project

My Middle Daughter has decided an Underwater project with her newly acquired PADI certification will be to difficult to organize 40 hours worth of dives and to costly for the family right now ( she wants a dry suit as well.. ) .



So at first altho I was a little disappointed I had to agree with her on the finer points....but my disappointment transformed quickly when she inquired about Sail Boat Racing!...woohoo!



So I/we are officially seeking a ride for her for this upcoming season...She is Green as grass but knows the basics of boats...she has been boating since quite young...and is quick and agile...with OK upper body strength for her size..5'4 120lbs



So if any of you local racers would consider her for your season and give her a try out... PM us so we can talk.



Thanks Scott

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Melea and I are very happy to announce that both Marty and David have offered spots for her...She is very excited and now watching boat race videos on U-tube...She really likes the Volvo Ocean racing ones.......she says "that is so COOL!".

So yes SD we will keep you all updated..hopefully there will be opportunities for a picture or two taken of her during the races to share here as well. As there will be need for her to document all she learns and does for her project...but she will have a job to do so the skippers will have to let her know when the right time for those will be.

Again... Dad could not be happier...Thanks guys...I owe ya one!..

Whip her into shape boys...I need a good deck hand..

Scott,

Glad we are not trying to do the "Southern Straights race, 60% of fleet withdrew at or just after the start. Neptunes Carr did not even start! Wind gusts are in the 50-60 knot range. Edmonds has had some mid 40's over the last hour or so.

We have seen gusts at the house to 42 kts so far...I thought is was dying down there for a while but the largest gust yet just blew through.

How do you get fleet info so fast? Cell phone I presume...

That is one place, also SA has a thread on it too. Just announced the race has been abandoned by the coast guard/rc, all boats to go to a safe haven, radio RC on ch16. SO you know it is getting wicked out there. I had read also, the only boats out were ones potentially training for Vic/maui.

I'm at home, only went out to chec POB, down to marina about noon to check on the boat, semi nasty in edmonds at the time. May go down in a bit to see the waves. could be interesting.
