No Complaints!

It gets better than this, but not much. 18-22 knots steady with huge rollers. 16 boats showed up. Great start in clear water. In fourth place for half the race, but a multi-hull couldn't carry its spinnaker and felt compelled to withdraw. Phenomenal crew work. Das Boot was shorthanded; we could have hoisted, but we weren't sure we could douse it. We really didn't need it with our huge mainsail at full hoist.
At the end of the race, Skipper was cramping in all extremities and was self medicating with beers to no avail. Finally, Mai Tai's finished him off.

Too exhausted at this point to continue at the keyboard: going to roll into my bunk with a smile on my face, expecting a hangover tomorrow.
