Becalmed is putting it nicely <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" /> But, we did have a good first race.

It was grand to meet so many of the TTOLers! We are looking at dates for our fall trip and it looks like we are coming down mid November till Thanksgiving instead. Just the way the Husband's schedule works out. *kicks sand*err snow*

One lesson learned last year..have more beer onboard..if we hadnt been running out we might have tried to stay in the race although we were going backwards and sideways!

We will likely be living in Florida by then so we might be able to get down there pretty easily - no concrete plans yet.

We'll need to unload a few hundred pounds of other dead weight if we are going to add more beer! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/toast.gif" alt="" />

what a rookie mistake!! Thought you guys were salty sailors!! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/jester.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/jester.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/jester.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/jester.gif" alt="" />

we have a running joke now that an event day/evening of boating requires no less than 96 beers (for 6-8 people, random boat guests who show up etc)....we have never run out but we get close!

Basically everyone shows up with a case, crisis averted!!...96 beers, don't leave the dock with out them ..... <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Joy.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Joy.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/toast.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/toast.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/toast.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Cheers.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Cheers.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Cheers.gif" alt="" />

I guess this isn't one of those races where people are cutting the handles off their toothbrushes & removing their shoelaces to save weight... <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Laugh.gif" alt="" />


If I can't be a good example, I'll just have to be a horrible warning. [Linked Image]

True! And probably a fair amount of that beer is going overboard, after a fashion... <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Wink.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Wink.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" />

We did provision more beer before we headed to Great Harbour, but we had an "impromptu" boat party and got wiped out. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/pirate.gif" alt="" />

If they could just funnel all the trash talking down to Thatch, you'd have some mighty fine racing.

Should seriously reconsider the course, or even eliminate the second race when the only wind is from the crews <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Yikes.gif" alt="" />

Surprised Foxy hasn't figured out that all that time spent out on boats not moving is money not being spent in his bar. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" />

You make a VALID point, Bruce -- or just do one race on the second race course and eliminate the first.

It was VERY late by the time most boats got across the finish...of course...some were earlier than others <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Wink.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Clapping.gif" alt="" />

The best was the morning of the race when Brian and I were getting ready to leave and I walk into the little kitchen of our villa and Brian is loading up a little cooler.
