Back to the Future aboard the Cynthia Woods

We spent months hashing over the sinking and loss of life aboard the Cynthia Woods, but I thought you might like to see the "before". Before the tragedy and death, before the shattered dreams, before all the finger-pointing - a time when they were hopeful and excited about their 650 mile trek down the Gulf, with no thought of the life changing events that would unfold in the coming days.

Cynthia Woods to Set Sail in Regata de Amigos

The 2008 Regata de Amigos is set to start at 2 p.m. today, Friday June 6, 2008. Due to high seas, the regatta will begin inside the Galveston jetties as opposed to its normal starting location near the Flagship Hotel in Galveston. They will be sailing on the Cynthia Woods, a Cape Fear 38R.
The Regata de Amigos has been held every even-numbered year since 1968. Participants in the race sail from Galveston, Texas to Veracruz, Mexico. TAMUG placed fifth in 2006 while sailing the Cynthia Woods.
This year, boat tracking technology was distributed to each participating team so that the race could be tracked online. To keep up with the Cynthia Woods, visit Regata de Amigos XXI | Boat Mapperand select “Cynthia Woods” from the drop-down Pick a Boat menu on the left-hand side of the page.
