Boat show yesterday, spent the day with the crew looking at goodies and talking to engineers, designers, builders, mnaufacturers and the inevitable sales people.  With the weather being so bad we are not accomplishing much right now.  I did receive the PHRF certificate for our boat (Performance Handicap Racing Fleet), our particular rating is 150, which means that we get a handicap of 150 seconds per nautical mile from here to Hawaii.  That's 2057 miles x 150 /   3600  gives us 85.71 hours handicap or 3.57 days.   So now to research sail numbers and get one assigned the have to be applied to some or all the sails as well as to a generic piece of material that can be attached to the gull in case of dismasting. 

 

The inspection process of this race is quite daunting, it seems to go on forever.

 

we continue to try and get people to contact our kickstarter accound so that we can use the fliers to support a sales pitch to the vendors for parts and suppies donations.
