Coming up quickly, only 12 days away is the STYC Blakely Rock Benefit race. A fun race with Breakfast, racing, raffle and party at the sloop. All proceeds go to the Ballard Food Bank and this year there is something amazing happening

http://styc.org/Greenwood_Ohlund.jpg (http://greenwoodcpa.com/) All cash donations from this year's Blakeley Rock Benefit Race will be matched (dollar for dollar, up to $10,000.00).

Greenwood Ohlundís (http://greenwoodcpa.com/) annual tax season food and cash drive for the Ballard Food Bank has an anonymous matching donor, matching up to $10,000 of cash contributions made to the Ballard Food Bank.

WOW! Amazing work and what a huge push for donations to the Ballard Food Bank. Already Entry's are flooding in with plenty of time to spare for you late entry people. Check out who is entered here (http://styc.org/), and then click over here and register your boa (http://styc.org/race_info/Blakely%20Rock%20Benefit/brbr_reg.cgi?level=1)t!

Looking forward to seeing everyone again this year, we're even flying in some friends from California to enjoy this spectacular event, check out last years write-up here (http://www.pressure-drop.us/forums/content.php?250-30th-Annual-Blakely-Rock-Benefit-Race).

Hey, give us credit. I saw 6.1 kts on my steam gauge for a minute or 2. Otherwise, there were long periods of two point something.

Could they have zoomed in on a boat OTHER than "Penetration"? I can just imagine some guy watching the news who doesn't know anything about sailing looking at that and thinking... "I wonder what they do when the wind isn't blowing?"

You guy's confuse me...

Fwits were a small furry carnivorous mammalian non-sentient species native to the arboreal planet of Maridun. Averaging at around half a meter tall, fwits were kept by Amanin on Maridun as both pets and guardians, due to their vicious, savage nature.

What is an FWIT in this instance?
