I got an offer to liveblog a pretty major regatta in September. I'd be positioned on a committee boat, have wireless access and specialized software that would stream directly to the yacht club and regatta website. It's like a dream come true.
The problem is that it's the same weekend as my 10th wedding anniversary and my son's 4th birthday party. I love sailing and writing and anchoring in the middle of a lot of big fast boats but I kind of love my family more. Damn.
I'll find out if I can do 1-2 days instead of all 4, maybe I'll be out on the water again somehow. Oh yeah, maybe the Sarcoma cup too (David, I'm checking on that one now with the scheduling master).
