Crew Email

This morning, Ledbetter Beach was sparkling with a good morning breeze. A few white caps at 9 A.M. I made it out to be 12 knots. My impression is that the breeze built all day. Wednesday might be a winds-day, too. I see 17-25 knots predicted. We can certainly use a little change in the weather as we are in 13th place out of 19 boats after the first race in the twilight Summer Series. In any event, I smell fun in the air.

Doberwoman sure enjoyed herself this morning! Hope everyone can make it!


  1. Looks like a rogue wave gotcha in the end!

  2. Memo to self:

    Okay. Let's get this straight before we go out today. The boat is not yours. It belongs to MVP and the rest of the crew. You are just the helmsman. You get to call some shots, and they get to call some shots. You're the reponsible party. That's all. Let the boat sail herself. Win or lose, you don't care. You are not a stakeholder. But it's okay if they care. Whatever happens, stay on your feet and stay on the boat. And don't complain about the weather!!!!
