The Everest of Ocean Racing

Here is the start of the Sydney-Hobart Race from last week.  They are calling the 69th running the greatest collection of super maxi sailboats ever gathered.  Watch the start and see why!  WO11 takes line honors in an epic race to Tasmania.

Wow...had two great sails on the weekend.  Both days were mid afternoon starts as the wind was just starting to build.  Great sunsets and beautiful winter conditions (60 and sunny and clear).  The boat is sailing fast in flat water with lots of high 6's on the speedo due to the new bottom paint.   Hardly anyone else out there.  Great way to end the year.
