I'm all riled up about the Three Bridge Fiasco. I've got a superb crew, a new spinnaker coming, plans for actually rigging the beast, and an organized community.
Captain John is shadowing the race (legal implications of racing a chartered boat), O Docker is entered, David is entered, Breezetrees is entered, Zen is looking into it, and a preliminary badge has been designed.
Now, I have to get the boat ready. The first step was this last Saturday: Noah and I went to the boat, fired up the Atomic 4, took a short journey over to H dock, and emptied the holding tank! 80+ pounds gone from the port bow, getting the boat down to fighting trim!
I got new spinnaker sheets and figured out the block placement. This coming Saturday, Phil is going to come by and help me figure out what I'm doing wrong and take the small kite out for a practice sail. Once he tells me all of my rigging shortcomings I'll have 3 weeks to get it going. I'll put pictures up for even more input.
Three weeks until the fiasco!
