I'm planning to be there this year...most likely arriving on Thursday. I'm trying to convince my better half to come join me but she doesn't want to be out on the water all day racing and is afraid of being bored hanging out on shore. Taking two cars not an option. Trying to think of logistics whereby she can ride out with me Thursday, and then maybe put her on a train back to Sacramento on Friday. But that would be a round trip from Monterey to San Jose to do that, killing 1/2 a day.
Both of us got out to the Delta to sail with a couple of Potter Yachter friends on Sunday (Rained like crazy Saturday.) Picture attached. Some wind to move us along but it died about 3pm.
More repairs. Every time I fix something, there's something else. This time I lost a sail stopper. The round brass nut to hold sail slugs from sliding out.It fell out...I don't know where. Also had a "Doh" moment at the ramp. Just barely clipped a tree with the mast, taking out my windex. Could have been worse. Maybe I should just install a mast gate.

Glad to hear your have TwoCan on line to get wet. It doesn't look like we'll hve a S15 proto in the water by Monterey, but we're planning to bring something to Annapolis in October. We're starting to shift stuff around the shop for the new spray booth. Are you planning to sail Monterey? Look forward to seeing you and Becky.
We're traveling right now (business). planning to be home on the 31st. Have fun on your 29th sail.
