I happened to mention the Around SJI Race at a sailing party on Sunday, and a friend piped up "need crew?" I hadn't planned on entering, just feeling zonked with the move and other projects, but with a willing volunteer (Bill Nelson--you met him on the ketch in March, Chuck) I'm in. I had a great time on this race last year--met some nice folks and mixed it up with some terrific boats. Chuck's boat and my boat and a 41 foot ketch, all handicapped the same, were neck-and-neck the last 1/2 mile to the finish. It didn't matter that we were fighting it out for the last half of the non-PHRF finishers--it might as well have been the Whitbread, very exciting. This was a very accessible and friendly race. I recommend it highly.
