Nice videos Tom.
How did you guys place in the ALIR?
At least the weather was cooperating this summer unlike last year.
One of these years ...

Well

They did a good job matching the divisions this year so we were in a tight group between 111/117 with a 5:20 PM start

After dark we had no idea were anybody was and spent the night making and absurd amount of sail changes going from spinnaker then working down to the heavy #3 into a pounding chop and back and forth through the 1 2 and 3 with constant wind speed/direction changes

The sun came up and and what do know 90 miles later the fleet went around Montalk and across the bay to orient point in a dead heat with enough wind to sail through the gut with foul current :cool:

About 5PM the next day (24) hours we got a bit close to a rock as we went into the sound and started taking on enough water then we thought it best to call it a day :eek: and motor home

We will know how bad it is Monday But it looks really BAD

Do you mean you hit a rock in the Sound that caused the hull to leak? That doesn't sound too good.
Glad you made it safely home.
