We are now upto 25. Just had an entry from John Harrington from Crystal River, FL and an email from Martin Raisbrook who is flying in early from the UK to race with us. Don't forget entries close Oct 31st so if you have not entered and still want to email me asap.
The Lake is looking great with the new marks and Friday nights party hopefully will not cause tooo many hangovers. Alan

OK, 28 boats for a P&R Regatta wind forcast is looking good for the lake especially for Sunday. Practice as normal Friday pm followed by a pre-regatta party at the Perkins. Arrive anytime after 5:30 give Liz and the other ladies some time to get the 'nibbles' etc ready.

Just for your info over the weekend at The Villages, George W Bush is having a book signing on Saturday at 10:00 in Lake Sumter landing Square and on Sunday, The Villages are going to try and break their own Guiness Book of Records for the largest number of golf carts in a line so be aware it might get crowded on certain streets. Parade starts at 12:30 Sunday. It all happens in The Villages !!!!

To Alan, Liz and all the volunteers. Thanks for a
fun time. Its always a cherry atmosphere down in the villages. If i was over 55 i'd move right on in. Night life though gets pretty crazy i've heard. There's also the danger of those golf carts on steroids.

Anyway, Nothing much you could do about the wind. Despite the anxiety
over the port starts and shifty winds, i enjoyed the competition and seeing my good friends again. I only hope i'm sailing as good as B. Cassidy when i'm 83. Thanks again and look forward to sailing with you in Punta Gorda.
