I met the owner of this beautiful boat this morning and there appears to be a very good fit for the Pacific Cup & Saucer; I'm going to Hawaii*.
He's a very nice guy, a singlehander, obviously successful enough to own this boat, and pretty experienced. I think the most important thing is that we hit it off and have similar goals for sailing/racing. Seriously, 2 hours went by in a flash.
Oh man, this is a nice boat too. I can't wait to take her out for a sail. Of course, the race isn't until July so faithful readers of this blog be prepared for an inundation of Pacific Cup ramblings for the next 8 months.
*This is assuming of course, he doesn't read this blog too closely and see posts like A Bag of Pretzels.
