Those pictures are hilarious.

My goal is to sail more often.
-I have a beach spot at Eagle Creek in Indianapolis
-I'm planning on going to as many CRAM regattas as possible (let's get some more H16's there!)
-My girlfriend's Dad sails J/24's and he wants me to crew with him

This should keep me busy.

I'm aiming to get out a bit more this season on our H16. I'm keen to try a shore camp/sail excursion. I'm about ready to try the trapeze out.

I hope to attend a couple CRAM events. I'm not terribly interested in racing, but I want to learn more, and I figure trying to keep up will help. I can't make Crescent or Caseville 1, but maybe NCYC.

For each of the last 3 summers I have taken out more first timers than the year before. last year was 5, so getting 6 newbies out shouldn't be impossible.

I want to trap out on my own boat this year!

I want to participate in at least 1 CRAM event this year as a sailer (have been working race committee the last 2 years at CSYC, and will try to make that my first event. My goal in that is to beat the Thistle class... :lol:

Definitely want to spend more time trapped out solo. Spent a bit of time last summer out on it but need to practice. Gotta stop pussying out and dumping air when the hull flies!

You need to find one day in a safe place with friends to help and practice righting the boat. Once you become comfortable solo righting the rest is much easier.
