    Weather permitting, there will be a beer + pizza party under the cabana at 33 Boone Trail, Severna Park, MD on Wednesday evening at 6pm, August 19th (Lintead-on-the-Severn community pier/cabana - main beach).

    WetPet and I have Race Committee duty for the Wednesday Night sailboat races. Come watch the local sailors play bumper boats as we drink Ed's beer and eat his pizza. Race ends at ~8:30pm depending on the wind and how we feel about shortening the course.

    Count me in Alzy.... By the way I've been told I'm "a born jib trimmer". That's a back handed insult, right? ;-)

    I haven't been sailing this year but I've been on the potomac a lot (hint: going backwards without wind or engine assistance.)

    You're #1 on the list Jim.

    Trimming is all about easing the sheets in and out at just the right time.

    I'm sure you have experience. We're talking sailboat racing, right?

    Ed did very well last week; proving that experience does matter.

    Yeah, last year I was sailing, and I guess I am good with the jib, but I think the guy's intention was to say I'm not really "skipper material" or that I should just be crew. haha.

    This year I've been rowing single scull on the potomac (it's a 7 minute walk from my door step). I'm not very good at rowing yet either. ...and yes, of course, racing is always a goal in the back of my mind. I miss competition.

    Looking forward to coming out.

    PS Have you and Ed considered shaving your mustaches to reduce drag? Ed's alone probably costs you 1/2 a knot.

    I wax mine down before the race. i actually get a little downforce on my upper lip which helps me keep my mouth shut when the wench is winching in front of me.

    Al, just had a thought. you should let mark or arturo skipper your boat then you can watch it race from the dock. You could also penalize any boats near us.

    Ed, quit smoking hemp.
    I'm the only one who's allowed to put holes in other people's boats.

    The mustaches are there to ensure there no mistaking the intake hole with the exhaust hole.

    Yes, Puff is coming (ok, ok I fed you a line).

    Deep and his wifey on Aug 26th to race - I think.

    Arturo will be in Maine this week.
    Mark sans kids.
    No Hayley - out boating with her parents.
    Dr. Fred is working the ER.

    Check w/Nate Dog and see if he plans to come this week to sail, or next week for beer/pizza.

    And please DON'T shave your mustache so I can tell which end is up.
