"Any damn fool can navigate the world sober. It takes a really good sailor to do it drunk." - Sir Francis Chichester when asked why he carried so much alcohol on his solo sail around the world.

Tentative Practice Schedule

Here's the tentative practice schedule for the Mac Race crew.

Thursday, May 31 (evening) or early Friday, June 1 (morning) arrive at boat. We'll practice our MOB drills and get familiar with the boat during the day on Friday, June 1. Then Friday evening we'll participate in the Chicago to St. Joe Race. Saturday is a lazy day in St. Joe with a party Saturday night at the club. Sunday we race back to Chicago. Bottom line, everyone is going to need to try and get off work on Friday. If we don't have enough takers than we'll reschedule this practice.

Saturday, July 7 and Sunday, July 8th we'll hold a practice.  We'll use this practice to review MOB and other safety procedures, and to do a lot of sailing drills. We'll see if we can exhaust Jason with headsail and chute changes, and jibes.

Remember to review the MOB video on this site.
