FYI (from the D24 listserve).  I plan on sailing on Sunday (in a Radial),
unless it's blowing 35 like it did yesterday!

Did any locals do the clinic with Anna Tunnicliffe?  Maybe they could share
some secrets with the rest of us....

Anyone interested in a practice at Santa Cruz  Sun April 21 ? How about
this as the plan ? (1) leave dock at 1pm, get back around 4pm (2) do rabbit
starts and short/medium length upwinds to get a long way upwind 3) line up
on beam reaches and bear off to runs, regrouping every now and then, to get
to Mile Buoy.

I'd classify this as a black diamond event, as opposed to green circle or
blue square (using ski run difficulty levels) because it can get windy and
there won't be a whaler providing backup. I will carry a DSC VHF w/ GPS in
case of emergencies.

There is a $10 launching fee. There is metered parking. Dollies and
trailers are often left in front of the USCG station, on the lawn. If you
get any pushback on that, the case has been made that you are opening up
parking spots for cars.
