      The Iron Man Race was always epic. Sad to see it go down. Ditch Run turned everyone into lazy sailors.

        This year the Delta Ditch was the Iron Man race. Isn't the South Tower usually the weekend after the Ditch?

          Did a bunch of em back in the day. As I recall, the peak was in the 70-80 boat range. For about the first 20 years it was limited to SSC boats only and they always managed to get 40 or so boats on the line. Now everybody is so pussified if a race makes you go to weather more than about 10% of the course.

          On a positive note, when I had my next to last boat, we did the South Tower with kind of a rag tag crew (except of course War Dog), and brought along the "beehive", thinking we'd learn the new boat and have some laughs (and perhaps a hangover).

          Much to our surprise, we kicked ass, got stupid with the "beehive" and lived large.

          So c'mon bitches, get in the game.

            S.I.'s show that the South Tower Race starts Friday.

            You could start it, race all the way to 1/2 Moon Bay, sail back to the G.G.
            and finish the S.T. in one fell swoop. If there is one boat capable of such a
            feat, it would be named " Can 'o Whoop Ass"

                He gambles on the outcome of the race?

                Is nothing sacred?
