Liberty is being free from the things we don't like in order to be slaves of the things we do like.--Ernest Benn

Take nothing for granted.

Everything we have is but for a short time.
Another beautiful, ideal day with 15-16 + knots. New Mainsheet Lady aboard and she did very well. (Glad to have her committed for the weekend because we'll be without MVP on Sunday.) Moderate seas. Ranger 33 could not fly their spinnaker, so they were not a factor. Enjoyed winning a short tacking duel with Santa Cruz 27 before the finish. I know it's sort of nonsensical to engage in boat-for-boat tactics when you're racing in a handicapped fleet. But competing on elapsed time, boat-for-boat is what gets my juices going. I think Mainsheet Lady collected a 3rd Place glass, but I'm not sure. Dudn't matter....
