Five O'Clock Somewhere

Welcome to Five O'Clock Somewhere, where it doesn't matter what time zone you're in; it's five o'clock somewhere. We'll look at rural life, especially as it happens in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, cats, sailing (particularly Etchells racing yachts), and bits of grammar and Victorian poetry.

Programming note

I'm not dead yet

Yes, it may seem as if I've disappeared from the face of the earth, but really, I haven't. I have some stuff to say about last weekend's racing, and some other observations about the universe. The problem lately has been a lack of convergence between time to write and reliability of online connection.

Capsule of last weekend's racing: good wind Saturday, lousy wind early Sunday, changing to way lots of wind later in the day.

We did OK in the medium air, lousy in the light air, well in the heavier conditions. Zorro also did lousy in the light air, but very well in medium and heavy. Sutherland did well in light, OK in medium, quit in heavy. Applegal didn't show up. End result for the Etchells Fleet 31 Championship: Zorro first, Sutherland second, us third.

Now we're back up at Heron, working on generating a real racing schedule for the first time in four years. This weekend, it's the Memorial Weekend Fun Race. More on that, and our trophies, in an upcoming post.

Three boats raced today at Heron. It's a start; we hope to get more on June 9th. One boat, a Moore 24 (sort of a souped-up, streamlined cousin to a J24), gave us a lot of competition, especially upwind and tacking up the Narrows ... in the Narrows, the lead chanced several times.
