Ocean Racing at its best, three boats dueling downwind in beautiful conditions. We held them off to the bottom mark.

Dick Hodge was the Most Valuable Player and recipient of this trophy for his big help on tactics. But he thought everybody else deserved it more and I didn't want to embarrass him any more by making him pose for a photo. Here he is working the boat.

Christmas Dinner

In case you missed these on Judy's FB page, we cooked a turkey dinner aboard for Christmas. It was simple, without a lot of the extras (just the two of us, you know)but boy was it nice to smell turkey cooking on Christmas Day. We just finished the last of the leftovers last night.

Fred & Jim Sailing
Jim Slosson came with us to try out the recut sails. It was a nice day.

The next job we had was fixing the winch. After several trips to the machine shop we had our new stainless steel gear ring, but not all the teeth were perfect. Fred finished them off with the dermal tool but the winch was still noisy.

Final touch up

Finished Winch

Another big job was replacing the balsa core in the cockpit sole. I tell you, it was too messy and I had epoxy all over my hands every day, too much so to pick up a camera. So no photos until this one.

Cockpit Floor

We also visited Arroyos Verdes Resort and played in the pool. Nice place.

Judy has fun
