NAC Racing

 

Flotsam and Jetsam

 

Things that have been sighted floating on the water this NACs: big, red jellyfish; boom crutch; horseshoe crab hanging “prow” out of the water; paddle; cormorant; spinnaker pole, only for a moment and not ours. Oh, and a huge mass of seaweed wrapped around our centerboard after rounding the leeward gate in Wednesday's second race.

 

Cedarpoint Yacht Club NACs

We’re at the fourth day of the NACs and I haven’t blogged yet! I’m going to make a quick installment. Let’s call this the food chapter.We’ll talk about yesterday’s racing tonight.

 

Packin' for the NACs

So here it is Tuesday and we're packin' for the NACs! Heading out early to visit my family in Bethesda, MD. The boat is all set, but I'm struggling with the clothes. Sadly, we have no clothes with our club logo on it and I have nothing for parrothead night!! Woe is me!! Who knew sailing could be so stressful?!

Ah well, we've paid our money, we've packed our measurement certificate and our trailer is road legal, so the rest is just details.

Hit the road!!
