mack 2014 start
So... I watched "Shooter" from April of this year. I liked it, despite Bishop's stupid black eyebrows...and Bishop in general. I am looking forward to Episode 3 of the new season where we get to see a young Ducky.

Our start. we took a 5th, but were in 3rd for a good part of the mack 2014 start race.

The Mack Race

mack 2014 start

This was our start. At one time during the night we were in third, but we finished in fifth. The first night it poured rain all through the 2-6 am shift. And when the rain left up the fog rolled in and we had about 20 foot visibility

Mack Race 2014

So this Saturday at 11;50 am is our start. The weather forecasts have been all over the place, but it looks right now like will will have winds out of the north for awhile around 20 knots on late Sunday into Monday and that could make for a bumpy ride. Hopefully, we be as far North as possible by then.
I will keep you posted.

This is the good sailing ship,Aonbharr,. She is a Soveral 32.   Isn't she pretty.

Kettle Point overnight Race......

Was glorious. The start gun was at 6:30 pm and we raced up and back to a mark on the Canadian shore. 47 miles total.   We finished at 2:10 am. I just got home at 4:30 am. Too tired to go to sleep.
It was a really pretty night with stars  and a moon and mostly just the right amount of wind. I went on Jody's boat. A Soveral 32. I am use to a Catalina 30. Besides the 2 foot difference there is also about a 4000 pound difference in weight. The Soveral 32 is a go fast racing boat. The Catalina is a cruising boat. That means she is a floating Winnebago. And his crew is new. I felt like an old salt.
So sailing on her was the same but different... and in the dark.
But the night was beautiful with stars and a moon and not too clod...
And with any luck, when the times are all in, we may have taken a 2nd

Sailing stuff

We took a 2nd place today, it was a lovely sail..except for the bugs. And that gave us a tie for first in the spring series!    Yay!  and we asked our temporary crew member Frank if he would sail with us on the Port Huron to Mackinac Race and I think he will say Yes. Yippppeeee! We have 6 crew. he is smart and quick. I think we may have a chance to place this year.
Mary made me the most wonderful many berry pie for my birthday( which isn't until next week, but we aren't on the boat) So my pre-birthday weekend  is starting out swell.
