So OK ... by now everyone should know that J30s do really fine spin peels if you run the second spinnaker halyard.
Today, was Vee Jay med staff day and our MD, physical therapist and pharmacist took over foredeck.
Our teen crew member taught them how to peel.
I know some of you guys think that spin and all that is not much fun ... but these guys were pretty happy.
I'm thinking that on 2/18/2012 Vee Jay was the only boat in the US doing spin peel practice with a gal foredeck crew who could handle any possible medical emergency. Wait ... that may be in the world.
once these guys started to jibe the spin ... they kept at it for 23 jibes before reaching the magic 8 second timing that Vee Jay likes to see ... then they broke for Dr. H's prescription of champagne and brownies.
