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.
