Speaking at CYC-Seattle Monday lunch

I will be speaking at the CYC-Seattle Monday lunch on September 27. Hope to see anyone there who missed my earlier talks or would like to hear me talk again.
It will be very interesting since one year prior I was in Madeira for the TransAt stopover getting ready for the 3100 nm second leg.

What's next?

Right now I have a few very interesting things in the works for additional short handed racing. Hopefully by Whidbey Island Race Week I will have more info. Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Seattle and SFO NOOD regatta

Am just back from the San Francisco NOOD regatta, sailed on Joe William's Melges 20, Habit. We had 9 races over two days and had  a great regatta, winning 8 of the 9 races and having a third in the other. The conditions were typical San Francisco, medium in the morning and getting windier throughout the day.
I also sailed the Seattle NOOD with Joe on the 20, not quite as good of a regatta but before San Francisco we found some setup changes that were very effective and I think we are pretty happy with the results.
