    What I've Been Doing For Fun While I Was Away

    Sailing, mostly. Racing, specifically. Here’s the course for tomorrow’s race. Start/finish line is between buoys WR32A and R34.

    Lots of math. Looks like fun!

    I bought a CrankIR vertical. MUCH easier to deal with than the Buddipole for camping.

    No math, happily—I'd be fucked if there was. The numbers are just compass courses taken off my computer navigation software.

    Total course is about 8 miles long, BTW.

    Results for last Saturday’s race came in this morning—under the handicapping system the race organizer uses we got first place, which surprised the hell out of us. We were sailing short-handed and didn’t think we did very well.
