    Thanks Dave and I received confirmation that High Anxiety is registered for the Olson LD. See you all there.

    High Anxiety is registered (online) for the Long Distance race. I don’t know why it doesn’t reflect that. I will email Chuck Willette and I’ll bring my receipt ticket with me for verification.

    On that note, I have one crew member that will be racing with me on the long distance race that is unable to do the course racing. I will have another person filling their position for the course racing. I know the constitution specifies the same number of crew, so do I bring both people for weigh in on Wednesday?

    High Anxiety is registered. Have date/times for weigh-ins, sail measurement, etc. been established? I’m heading up on Tuesday with the Centennial Race.

    Scott,
    I’ve been trying to send a copy of the bounce-backs but even they are bouncing back as undeliverable.

    I’ll be there. Thanks for letting me know.

    I plan on registering for the NA’s in Sodus. I renewed my membership last week. Who can I contact to see if I’m all set on that end? Tried sending emails through this sight but they’re bouncing back as undeliverable.

    Hey guys, had the Haarstick sailmaker on board last night and after a couple minor tweaks, she was pulling real nice. The numbers – 7-10knots true, although it looks like more from the picture, we kept it about 3-4″ off the spreader – single spreader mast. About 8″ of sag under this condition. Kept her running between 5.4 in the lulls and 6.4 knots in the puffs. More lulls then puffs unfortunately but can’t complain, had to lee bow the J-111 near the windward mark. Usually we’re not that close at the mark. So either we were dialed in or he was spacing out. I’d prefer to believe the former.

    High Anxiety still a maybe. Haven’t found a foredeck person yet and got a maybe on a spin/jib/main trimmer. The Sodus Bay Challenge Cup regatta this past weekend was pretty much what I feared. Oy. At least I was sailing…..

    Ray – I cut them down to about an inch tall, through bolted them and then moved the cleat off of it. I wanted to keep them for the same reasons as Old School. Little bit of teak looks nice.

    This question goes back to Ray’s comment about straight or slightly bent stanchions. While two of my stanchions have been used as “oh sh*t” bars during broaches and now are bent quite a bit, the other four appear to be factory bent just above the pocket. Say about 5-10 degrees. Is a straight stanchion the original design or has it become the norm?

    I don’t intend on replacing the stanchion through the deck, rather adding a way to secure or pin the stanchion to the toerail and as a last resort, the deck.
