SpinSheet, one of our sponsors, just posted photos of the Down The Bay Race. It's a 120 mile race that perfect on a Memorial Day Weekend right? Well, they're very wet and very cold at the moment. Some crazy racers are on a J24! Here's a link so you can follow the race's progress once you've got the grass cut and the grill set up.
It's a bit soggy here at the moment but the weather is predicted to improve for the weekend. It should be great for sailing. In the meantime, you can check the Typhoon Blog at Rappahannock River Yacht Club's site to see how the Typhoon racers are doing this spring. Just look in the right hand corner for Spring Series and click on it.

Theo Jansen's Strandbeests
On this beautiful, grey morning I want to salute all the Typhoon racers who are once again working on Committee and Mark Boats to assist others in racing. This time, it's the Rappahannock River Yacht Club's Spring Regatta. What a great group of people! These cool wind creatures in Holland are also inspiring as they're built to "live" on their own, only powered by the wind. Not unlike some of the sailors we all know. Good luck to everyone out on the racecourse today!
