My next race will be the Outback Cup Regatta, sponsored by the Columbia Sailing Club on Lake Murray, near Columbia, SC. Nick Bostic will be crewing with me. We're going to camp out at the club. Come join us. Outback Steak House is one of the sponsors, so at a minimum, you'll get a big juicy steak. The only place where I've seen the NOR is in the "files" section of the Catamaran Crazy Yahoo Group. I've downloaded it and sent it to everyone I had an email address for. If you didn't get my email and can't get into the Catamaran Crazy group, give me your email address, here or in a private message, and I'll send the NOR to you.

I hope to see you on Lake Murray.

Thanks for the link - I had scoured the Columbia Sailing Club sight and was baffled (still am) that they didn't have a link to the NOR.

Pretty good regatta, awesome facility and we even had wind. The Hobie 16s were thrown into a handicap fleet that included two H18s and three Isotopes. Even though we had six H16s, the RC made no effort to score us separately. One of the 16s was singlehanded and the RC didn't adjust the handicap for him, and he ended up being the top H16. In all fairness, the singlehander, Mark Williams (typically does race with a crew), sailed a great regatta and may have won anyway. Of the double handed H16s, the order of finish was 1) Garland Ayscue, 2) Me 3) Brad Daily 4) and 5) - not really sure, it would be between Carter Lucas and Paul Tomlinson. Official results haven't been posted yet. But we had a good time sailing. The scoring, however, really makes a strong case for ONE-DESIGN racing.

Nick Bostic crewed with me and we used the race as a tune up for the NACs. We had a productive and fun weekend. Nick made a lot of progress whipping me into shape! We'll get another day of sailing together down in Texas prior to the NACs, so we'll make some more progress.
