That explains it. I was wondering what happened. Man, wouldn't it suck to go to all that trouble to get her into the race and break something at the start?

Re: 104th Running of the Chicago / Mac

A few years ago a boat was brought from the West Coast to try and break Roy Disney's record for the Chi-Mac. This was a big boat, kanting keel, state of the art at the time. They prepped the boat in Holland, Mi. and the shakedown was the Port Huron-Mac. Prior to the race in training the mast failed. Big problem? No, they had a spare in Holland just in case. The estimated cost of the spare......$1,000,000! Just in case.

Inexpensive sport at some levels, not at those.

Re: 104th Running of the Chicago / Mac

Wow!- Race for the racing classes was a champagne cruise. The poor cruisers had a beat Friday afternoon in 15 knots which later subsided. We saw them heading to the beach at Belmont as we prepped the boat. Starting at 11:30 on Saturday we had the genoa up at the start for about a minute. Popped the chute and switched spinnakers twice the rest of the race. Sailed the race in shorts and a T-shirt the whole time. No need for a blanket at night. No rain, no storms, and no bugs. Racing was close with lots of boats around you the whole race. We made two 50-50 calls that didn't go our way but finished 7th out 23 in our section which was pretty good beating some pretty good boats. 47 hours and change is a fast race for the Beneteau 38 I was on. Juliana had to suffer through the first day beat and had a much longer elapsed time of 65 hours. Still a fast race and congrats to Juliana on their first race.

Absolut (Beneteau 38S5)in Section 7. Not to be confused with Absolute (Petersen 37) in Section 7 also. We beat them absolutely.
