    Lesson learned. From mid May through September, never, ever ever ever ever ever put up the #2. It's #3 and a freaking reef on my boat. Oh my God what a complete shitfight that was to get to Alcatraz. I've never flogged a main that hard, even reefed. It was painful to experience. We were miles behind everybody in our class by the time we rounded. We'd have been toast except that everybody in our class decided to stick to the west side behind the City and the hole from hell. For once, being tail-end-charlie paid off, as we went over to Alameda and kept moving the whole race.

      Just so you know we're all counting on you to single handedly save the future of sailing! So great to see a bunch of kids having a great time on your boat. Made me smile when I saw that picture. Speaking for myself I doubt I'd be sailing or own a boat right now if it weren't for my parents taking me sailing as a kid.
