Do you think Circus will share any racing tips and tricks?

As long as you have rum for the entire crew, I am sure that they would.

Congradulations again to the crew of Circus

Perhaps if Zephyr would be willing to share?

Sorry, Zephyr doesn't share rum until after the race is over.

FYI There is a very nice looking J/30 parked in NOYC's dry storage. Should be a nice MidWinters this year.

Hooray Circus! With a line like that, they looked to be just 3 points shy of PHRF boat of the week.
Yesterday I was up an extension ladder, raking a foot of snow and ice off the office roof to stop a leak. Time to start planning for a Key West/Midwinter tour for 2005.

As the add-on crew (purportedly) lending some local Chesapeake knowledge to the Circus crew at the last NA's, I think I can name a few things I saw they did that made them stand out:

Great teamwork.
Willing to try anything that made sense.
Starbucks double-shots before each race.
Mount Gay & Red Bull, on ice.

These guys are good. Watch out for them at the Mardi Gras regatta!

Great racing Mike, Christine, & crew! Glad to have had the opportunity with you.

FYI, we have 25+ gusts from the East at the present time. Anyone remember last year's MidWinters?

By the way including a photo of Zephyr from last year's race. It was blowing...

I'll pay premium $$$ or beverages for a photo of Northern Cuz in the French Quarter last year!

For those who want to come to Midwinters next year, please consider this string of events...
