The Countdown Begins

I’ve just registered for the GLSS race from Chicago to Mackinac Island June 22. Deadline for registration is Monday and there are 24 boats registered as of now.

This is a big challenge, sailing solo in a 300 mile race. But I’ve laid out the steps required and am going to do my best and see how it goes.

The boat is perfect. I feel fortunate to have found it, and the owner/builder was very cooperative and helpful, and cleaned and packed it up nicely. I have some work to do, but it’s manageable. Should be sailing in a week and in a better position to try to refine sails and sail handling. Got the mast off today and all looks to be well put together and in very good shape.
