Priates for Pupils race

Sure is fun to see our boat in action! These pictures were taken off of lectronic Latitude 38 web site. As you can see we were having fun. We managed to come in 1st place in the multi hull division. Some $30,000 pesos were raised for schools in the Bandaras Bay area. This is the kind of racing I like....put the spinnaker up and leave it up till the end of the race....none of this up and down stuff.

Why do we feel so small?

Last year when we pulled into La Cruz Marina we were one of about 15 boats. This time the marina was so full that they had to put us on the BIG dock with all the mega yachts. This slip was so big we could actually turn around in it! Later we moved over to the Cruiser friendly dock when our friends on Bravado left for the South Pacific. It is so much nicer being on a dock with our friends and actual people that will smile at you and yack it up. Seems all the mega boats do is clean their boats and watch tv.

OH, my aching rudder!

When your Captain yells from below the boat , " hand me the hacksaw!", it can never be a good sign! After a beautiful sail from Paradise Marina to La Cruz we decided to drift along the coast towards Bucerias. Ten minutes we hear the CRUNCH of something under the boat. Next thing we knew, 1/4th of the port rudder is toast. Now we really have to be serious about hauling!
