My (TI) crew decided to abandon ship and left me up the creek without a paddle. :o :shock: :( :cry:
Who would have thought you'd get weather like this in February - usually a hot dry month. :roll:
Good ol Murphy's been at it again..... :roll:
Cancelled this morning...............
Hopefully there will be another HBDO - but we'd better make sure we don't tell Murphy 'bout it next time :wink:
Hope all you have a great time and look forward to hearing all about it...

Chris, there were more on the beach waiting to get to the water. Hobie facebook page says 46... Day 2 we sailed out to Point Perpendicular after a small break gathered about the Hobie "mother boat". I'll post some pics when I get home.

Cows, you have to post the photo with the most Hobies in it on the Photographic Competition thread. May not win photo of the year, but we're looking good for the newly ordained TransPacific Most Hobies in a Photo Cup.
