Doesn't look like too many people in San Francisco are checking out the forum yet 'cept for a handful. Well I've had a nervous stomach all week. I'll be racing my boat, John T (Winslow ketch), for the first time in the Master Mariners regatta this Saturday. I have a decent crew and the boat is stout, but it's still making me a bit of a wreck. We have 77 boats participating this year. Ten boats in my class, Marconi III. 15.5 nm course. Flood. Anyway, I'll report back soon how it went. Have a good Memorial Weekend!
