  • Spin-Cup 2011 …….Race to the Rum!!!

    It’s that time of year again for the annual Memorial Day sprint down to Monterey. Race down Friday and with any luck get to the MYC before the bar closes. The question after that is do you hang out for the awards Sat night then sail up to HMB on Sunday enjoy a nice dinner and make the way the rest way home on Monday making a nice long weekend out of it …………………Or………. finish the race then drink until you are falling down get up Sat morning and have a Chorizo Burrito from the lil hole in the wall place right by the club then find a way to get home ASAP and still have a 3 day weekend to enjoy………… I know what my plan is how about you?? Either way this is a Fun one and I think of it as a tribute to Don & Betty’s tenure running the OYRA.


    So who is in?

    Anyone look at the forecast yet?

      RAGTIME! is in - we'll have four on the boat. Then Connie and the two younger kids are coming down Saturday afternoon and we'll go for a daysail on Sunday. Rich and I are DH'ing back up the coast, leaving Monday morning. So we're making a long weekend of it.

      We love Monterey but I haven't done this race before.

            It's a little premature to assume that forecast is set in stone, however it is better than 15-25 out of the south with fog.
