Splash Countdown Started

Posted by AJ Miceli on December 30, 2013

This blog is NOT dead — it’s just “pining for the fjord.” (wink!)

I’m sorry that I stopped updated the results last July.  Somehow life just gets in the way of responsible blogging.

In any case, I’m still alive; and Red Herring is covered, on the the hard for the winter.

I have updated the countdown timer to Splash for 2014.  Click on the “Countdown” tab above to get to the countdown page and then click on the URL.

Making Progress

Posted by AJ Miceli on April 15, 2013

It was 42 degrees and not raining on Sunday, so I got the boat washed and one half of the hull buffed (one half, because a hull has two sides, and a 27-foot boat is actually 54 linear feet).

Today is Monday, and it’s in the 60’s today.  I hope to get 2 hours of work in tonight after work!

Brier Patch 1 Recap

Posted by AJ Miceli on May 10, 2012

Writing on my phone so this will be brief.  4-mile W/L.  WNW 10-15.   Beautiful night for sailing.  We sailed very well.  The only problem was that we got stuffed at the start by Keya.  Lost about 30  seconds and just never made them up.

Everyone stayed close on the downwind leg and we didn’t give up any more time.  Rounded R14 with Rakish.  Sailed well upwind and gained 55 seconds on Rakish.  But it’s early in the season so the other boats corrected over us and we took fifth.  But we corrected over all but four A-Fleet boats.  We’ll take that!

Thanks to crew: Judy, Kim, Andy and Mark.

Results and recap coming.   First a couple pix from the first night.  Some of the crew (Mark, Judy and Kim) folding the jib on the way back to the slip after the race.  Yes, it got a little chilly as the sun was going down…

Sunday Shakedown Sail

Posted by AJ Miceli on May 6, 2012

The first race is Wednesday.  So we went up the mast to reinstall the wind instruments.  Then we got the main back on.  Then we went for a nice  shakedown sail in 12-18 kts of breeze.  Thanks Mark, Andy and Rosemary for the help and a fun sail.  It was a little chilly at times.  But, hey, we were sailing!!! 🙂

Team Red Herring

Posted by AJ Miceli on April 1, 2012

During the off-season Team Red Herring played Trivia at the Erie Yacht Club.  After 10 weeks Team Red Herring was victorious over a total of 23 other teams!  Apparently we know more useless information than all the other teams 🙂

2012 Countdown Started

Posted by AJ Miceli on December 29, 2011

So, maybe you noticed that the last posting to this blog was on my birthday (July 18, 2011).  I’m really sorry ’bout that!

Once again I must declare this blog NOT DEAD.  However, it has become derelict.  My life is surprisingly busy and full (for such an old guy).  And once again I must promise to be a more responsible blogger in the future.

Just to let you know, we finished the season with two 2nd places (two red flags — our favorite color).

As part of my New Year’s resolution, I’ve restarted the Countdown-to-Splash timer.   Click on the tab above that says “Countdown to Splash.” Once you click on the link you can then bookmark the link and go directly to it in the future, or you can continue to visit this blog.

Happy New Year!
