I decided overnight not to do the Chicago – Mac race. Looks like nice conditions for a fast tame race. But Tin Lizzie isn’t quite ready.
I’m fine with this. The plan all along was to do some stress testing locally before setting out. It may sound brutal, but you don’t want to start worrying about a failure when you’re alone, tired, and caught in a squall in the middle of a big lake. Or focused on passing a Frers 53.
I have an increasingly focused game plan for remediation and lots of support here. Going back to Canada for a bit of a break, then back to the Tin Lizzy project. Stay tuned.
Wishing fair and safe passage for the two dozen sailors setting off tomorrow morning.
