"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.

And then there were six

Mike Tomsu has withdrawn from the Mac Race this year for personal reasons.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.
