The original point of this blog was to see how many days I sailed this year. The final number is 43. Next years goal will be 52. That would be once a week on average.

I think I'm going to start off by sailing a local Laser regatta on New Years Day.

Some pictures from the National Championships of Puerto Rico.

Ever since I switched to the new extra low profile main sheet blocks I've had trouble getting the sheeting to work correctly. The main sheet always wanted to jump the sheave when I was sheeted block to block. Finally at North Americans I figured out what the smart guys were doing and rigged up something temporary. Today I actually moved the becket to make it permanent. This system evidently works great. The trick is moving the becket from on top of the cam cleat to the side of the block.
The two blocks are Harken H2640 and H194.

43: Puerto Rican Nationals
Ok we're ready to race now. We started of the long weekend a bit rusty but got back into the swing of things after a few races. I feel like we had just gotten the rust off by Sunday. At any rate it was a fantastic weekend with great racing and parties that were truly unique cultural experiences. We'll be back next year.
Rich wrote some good updates on the HCA website. The final results and pictures are posted there as well.
