    Why is that the responsibility of the organizers? All the sailors have the same forecast information. If they each considered it unsafe for their vessel and their skillset they are empowered to...

    I would assume, because this is a training run for people aiming at the SSS Transpac, and those conditions are not uncommon during that race. So even if you decide to turn back it gives you a taste...

    Oh, and last year I forgot our tent, so the crew had to sleep in the back of the Jeep and I crawled in to JetStream... not ideal. Can't wait for next year.

    I did drop part of my trailer coming down Altamont, recovered most of it. So trust me, there was some pain. Honestly, this race always seems to deliver an extra dose of pain but we always come...

    You can say that. Ass is still recovering. But it was fun. Probably if we had gotten the sportboat division we would have had some shorter courses. But I’m beginning to like the downwind races...

    Thanks for the catch, if you blink you miss it. But it is a good view. Day3 was wild, blew up the tack line fitting on the first race, and topped off at over 24 knots on the last run.

    First 3 races were OK, 35 - 45 boats, the remainder are pretty sad.
