Plus Sixteen in the doublehanded Pacific Cup

Monday, July 14th, 2008

Paul from the Olson 911 “Plus Sixteen”, who was a huge help in our TransPac Campaign (giving us a #4 jib, as well as a ton of helpful advice) is racing in the double-handed division of the Pacific Cup.

Best of luck, Paul. Stay safe, stay sane.

Update: Paul and Tony have taken 2nd in the double-handed catagory. Congrats!

Elusive Practice

Sunday, July 13th, 2008

Day after our Angel Island boat camping trip. Went on a practice sail (around the bay, out the gate, halfway to Bonita, back down to Pt. Blunt) on Charlie, Eben, and John’s 911 “Elusive” with Don, the sailmaker from Quantum. Lot’s of interesting feedback on manuevers and sail trim.

Ayala Cove overnight

Shanti, Heather, and I joined Bob, Shana, KDP, and Helen aboard Charisma at Angel Island for a night out on the mooring balls. We should really do this more often.

Eagle came out for the day, which made it even more special.




Saturday, we had a great hike up to the bluff above Racoon Straits, and watched the start of the Single-Handed Transpac. Good luck and god bless, guys.
