Crew Note

Hey Team,
This shot is from the News-Press of ten years ago, this coming Sunday. This was Opening Day, 2004.

Notice there was sufficient wind to get boats up on their edges with bones in their teeth. Notice also, that back then we were launching the spinnaker out of a 'turtle' bag on deck. Don't recall how we did and I can't find records, but our start wasn't too shabby, huh? As I recall, this was a day after rain when the storm was blowing out of our venue.

Hopefully, this Sunday will also offer us a post-rain day. But rain or shine, Opening Days are part-competition and part-party. Since we perform well in both, I hope all of us can meet-up at 1300hrs at the slip to toss lines.
