It's the Mont Gay Rum front factor.

Funny, I used to meet up with scads of racers in Vail during the "off" season. They only fell down leaving the bar.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Oh you know about the Mt. Gay rum fronts that sweep threw the area!

Yeah, I am trying to get better at skiing but I am pretty new at it. When I was yonger I used to travel with different race teams so I was never were it was cold. When the guys up here were skiing I was on a sled on my way to Hawaii or down in the BVI, I never really got a chance to go.

I am trying to take up skiing and snowmobileing more since now I have to pay a mortgage and car payment and am a broke ass poor old race crew. I want to be 14 all over again!

I've got a couple old red hats lying around somewhere...
Dings to 70s. Like 40s. Started as an ape, and worked back to the stick. Happiest with a sheet in hand. Have something like 20 Macs. Never did HI, but have done Newport-Bermuda. (Bermuda Black Label crushes Mont Gay. ) Used to be rather good at the game. Stopped racing to spend time with my kids and family. Didn't want a 2nd divorse, although I met my 2nd racing. Passively looking around again for a PT gig for next summer. Refuse to become a RBO or should I say PBO? If you know anyone that needs a good all round hand let me know.

There are always boats looking for crew. I pretty much stay with a 30 now. The owners are like family to me so it is a fun deal. We only do the bigger stuff as well. NOODs, Verve, luk, and some other stuff. No more wends nights and every single damn weekend club racing. We pick 10 or so from around the GL's and do them. If I want to do a Wends night or weekend thing I have a few boats I can hop on and sit in the back of the boat and feed the skipper info and call trim and tacktics.

If you want a ride let me know a port you want to sail from and I am sure I can get you a ride. May not be the fastest sled in the fleet but a fun one.

I'll shoot you an email in a couple months. I've got a line on a Sidney 40 that I want to let mature.
