Had a poke at it. I will probably do either Swiftsure or Northern Century but not both. Leaning towards NC as it is less cat herding to be double handed and I hear it is one of the best races going.

I'm up for either NC or swiftsure. I was leaning towards swiftsure, since I could bring more people. I'm up for whatever'll have the biggest fleet.

Scott you should do both. And the same for you Grady.
I would think that Swiftsure is unfinished business for you Scott. And I really think that the N100 or Northern Century race is the best challenge going. It is an achievement to just finish the race. So do the Long course in Swiftsure this year with Radiant Heat and Vampire. Lime Light should be going as well. two more and we get a class. This year the current favors the long course. Then do the double handed N100 as it is easy to get this race together. Both races had 4 boats last year. N100 had great weather. Scott if you come down for Swiftsure then you should do the Round Saltspring the previous weekend. That is a great party and makes a good stop over to bring the boat down.

Just so you know why we would do the long course for swiftsure.
it is a pre requset for the van Isle 360. And I want a class of J30s in two years for this race. Now we have to find the regatta or distance race to do down in Seattle.

hey what can you tell me about Round Bowen.
Price?
Party?
weather?
is it a stop and go race with parking lots or is it a drag race?
and do they make opportunity for people who have to ferry the boat up and need to leave it there for the week prior to the race?

then go shake the tree for Red 5

The regatta to do in Seattle is PSSR. That is our challenge to you guys.

Just got BoB's race calendar together and looks like we'll miss Swiftsure again (saving up on kitchen passes) so we can do the AN 100 - double handed of course! - and PITCH. Great back-to-back combo with the gutsy 100 mile race in Anacortes followed by a really good 2-day bouy racing circuit and parties in Bellingham. Makes the 12 hour delivery trip worthwhile. We've put PSSR/PSSC/J-Fest on the calendar but odds are slim we'll make all three. For more Northern races...we're not quite up to shore landings in Canada yet!

I'll get to posting BoB's plans on the spreadsheet after I get a little more crew commitment.

Since I got new governor installed over the holidays, and our ice in the marina melted, we are able to start 2011 racing this Sunday in Everett.

Grady - still got that table? I still got $$ even with kids in college....

Price: $65.
Party: Outstanding!
Weather: Hot!

The trouble is there will be a few restarts. There will be light wind at some point around the island. It is about the party and the 120 boats in a single start (the start line is 1 mile long)

I am not sure about moorage, but there is a government dock there that could probably accommodate you for a week. If you book with enough notice, you should be able to get a slip.

It was definitely one of the best parties I went to last year.

Bob I would love to see you in some of our big races up here. You are very fast. We don't bite here in Canada. This of course while we lick our wounds after getting killed in the hockey game tonight.

And what is this ice you speak of? Ice?
Must be colder to the south?

Can't wait for the rematch at the N100. I know I stole that position from you last year.
You had sailed a better race up till that parking lot at the end.

And as for the Round Bowen. It is now on the radar. We will now see how this fits the calendar.
