After months of sittin' `n da slip, SweeTART has a running diesel. Taking her out to this weekend for trial run. Still a trickle of oil leak, but hopefully just a paper towel cleanup.

Will keep eyes peeled here for a chance to meet everyone. Have a new windlass installed, ready to drop anchor somewhere when free time allows.

Tom -pretty sure Stephanie and I can meet up 4/7. If at Angel how do you tie on fore and aft to the mooring balls? Just asking Tom :D. ie hare the moorings like Catalina with one line between fore and aft balls or not....

And.... does st f yc have club reciprocity?

Bill -great to hear about the motor issues and windlass!

Hey Camino,

We'll be grabbibg a slip at Angel Island. I've done the fore and aft thing on the mooring cans, but then you need a dinghy to get to shore. The dock saves a lot of effort. That said, I'll have a dinghy and outboard if necesary. If you get there before noon, slips will be available.

StF YC has two kinds of reciprocity. If your YC is far enough distant, you can get in the front door. If on the other hand, your YC is too close, then you have to bring your yacht. To do that, you have to make a reervation to confirm they have dock space.

How far is too close?

I knew you were gonna ask. The answer is "I don't know", but the magic number is on their web site. I know Oakland YC is too close. About a year ago, before I was an OYC member, They let me spend the night at their docks on the strength of my Pacific Cup YC membership. They are big Pacific Cup backers and usually have members in the race.

Even with a bit a likely rain I believe we are in for Saturday. We’d stay the night so a slip is out as they have to be vacated at 10pm I think. We may have another boat from the Sabre forum raft with us on mooring - if they make it of course.

I have to work Sunday afternoon, so I'm not sure I'll make it out.
