Mike Tomsu has withdrawn from the Mac Race this year for personal reasons. So instead of seven we're going with six: David Stevenson, Cody Stevenson, Joe Levanowicz, Jim Sliger, Jason Wiggins, and myself, as I had originally planned.
Our sistership, Absolute, is going with 10 crew, and is betting on heavy air, while I'm betting that the race won't be much different than most, a little of everything. It is going to be of the utmost of importance for us to make sure that the off-watch get some sleep or we are going to run out of steam by Sunday night.
I also wanted to thank everybody for getting their liability waivers to me as quickly as you did, I'll sent them into the race committee tomorrow.
