Racing in Chicago
There must never be any beer on Denr''s boats...bummer!
I''ve had really good luck crewing out of Chicago. My wife took me to a (fantastically boring) convention at McCormack Place, so the next day I went down to the harbor instead. The T-10''s I asked were all full, so I ended up walking the dock at CYC, and found a nice cruising boat (they have bigger iceboxes and maybe even refrigeration!) owned by a liquor distributor who that was happy to have me aboard. Besides that race, I''ve since done two Chicago-Mac races with them. Great bunch of guys, and exciting sailing. They get a kick out of telling me when high tide is on Lake Michigan, so I tell them I''m bringing a sextant so we''ll be sure of where we are.
If it''s not fun, why bother?
