Race to St Michaels

Looks like a small field this year. Maybe people are waiting to sign up late.

Re: Race to St Michaels

Not surprised at the late entries with the weekend forecast calling Saturday relatively cool with winds at 15-20 out of the NW. If that holds up, it should be a real sleigh ride down! Though I wouldn't be surprised to see winds diminish as the day wears on. We're planning on cruising down to St. Mikes Saturday so may see the race fleet out there. Good luck and have fun!

Re: Race to St Michaels

Good luck, I heard you picked up Marsha, she's races out of HHSA regularly and has been on my boat.

I'd be there if it wasn't for a leg injury sustained last weds night. Let us know how it goes.

Just a minor vent:

I wanted to fly my spinnaker, but 21 kts, gusts to 30kts makes that pointless (I'm a displacement hull) and a little hazardous.

Still, I'm looking forward to it.

Re: Race to St Michaels

We did the Elf Classic Race to St Michaels last week end and took a 3rd with our 1967 Apache 37 sloop. It's characterized by a LeMans start. It was a beat most of the way. Great fun. All old classic boats...Elf is the oldest boat sailing today. Built in 1848. Check it out. Moe
