Looks like we're going to have 7 or 8 boat's on the line for this event. 

Friday we're having an informal tuning day..   

Looks like the animal will be sailed by a womens team..  i'm racing with Roger D from Austin.  Tac Boston will be down crewing for "El Paso Bob". 

Ben Robbins's new boat will make it's first appearance. 

fear the monkey

After being cancelled on Saturday because of dense fog, Sunday turned out to be a blast.

Wind was in the mid to high teens for most of the day.  Top speed recorded by a team was just a little over 14.   

Drake Borer, sailing with his usual crew Geoff Arold and a pick-up future viper owner Brian Shores took First with a 1,2,1.

Carrie jones sailing with Jody Henry and Corey grabbed a solid second with a 2,1,2 (chicks rule!)

Roger Deatric finished third with Crew Jeff and Owen Jones.

Good times!   Something more in-depth with pictures in our Feb newsletter later this week.

Chicks may rule, but even they must fear the monkey!

What a good time!  Can't wait to see the gopro footage of parking lot antics ( but having your son drag me under a truck is no way to build a fleet jones!)

Watch out for Houston people!  There are some great sailors there and with the rapidly expanding viper fleet on the bay, I suspect it won't be long before most of us are chasing them!

Next stop for this crazy train..... New Orleans... Ah the possibilities are endless (and scary)
