It is that time of the year again, time to round up the troops and find out who will be sailing in this years CR. Below is the list of those skippers sitting in the top qualifying positions for each of the four groups.

I talked to the park today and at this time there are 6 cabins still available if anyone would like for me to make the reservation and take advantage of the Charleston County resident discount. Being that we are within 40 days of the reservation date I will need credit card info up front in order to do this.

Anyone heading to Charleston early? I'm heading up on Thursday morning from Palm Beach and will be eating a lot if anyone wants to hook up. Will be at the pond Friday at 2 for Friday Rules Sailing.

Ramos and Danny put on a show. Congrats to Dave for taking home the now repaired clock and congrats to Danny for nipping at his heels! Jerry and Joe each strung bullets together when they needed them. Joe sailed like a man with a mission on Sunday and won 3 out of 7....pretty good! I had a good time and thanks Reichart and his volunteers for a simple and very relaxed weekend. Charleston is an awesome place.

To Reichart, his helpers and all of the competitors,
Thank you for a great weekend. And to any of you who, like me, luck into an invite, take it. Unless your ego can't handle being last. This is a regatta unlike any other. These are the "Top Guns" in the fleet. Being able to sail, drink and hang out with this group was a real treat. Also, to those who took the time to aid and advise the rookie (you know who you are), a special thanks. It was a special time.
Thank you all,
Lew English 2380

Additional note: While I was freezing my butt off Sunday morning, Joe Walter was in shorts! Where do we find such men?

Yes I was in shorts, but I was wearing socks....Also a sweater, coat, hat, and gloves for a while. But I gave my gloves to Doc Greer. It was cold for sure.

Great run event. Reichard gave us great courses in difficult conditions. Sorry Alan Perkins had to drop out with his foot injury. I know he wanted to keep going. And also sorry Dave Branning's back made him sit out Sunday. It is always great to sail with Dave. One of the best attitudes on the water.

Get him to tell you the joke about the picnic. But not in mixed company.

Congratulations Dave Ramos on your win.
