Glorious sailing on Saturday. Clear enough to see the mountains behind Monterey, upper teens and a good swell for lots of surfing. Laird Henkel was in a radial, Peter Shope and I were in standards. Laird went out first and came in earlier, but Peter and I got 2.5 or so hours in.
With the Nationals in Santa Cruz in late June, I'll organize some more practices when I have the time. Feel free to initiate some on your own.

>> 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.
