Perhaps I'm not fully objective, but I thought the GAM was outstanding. Great speakers, great people, and some really interesting conversations.

It was indeed. Evans was a great host when I had a chance to briefly visit.
Not to embarrass him unduly, but when an incoming boat ran aground on uncharted humps and half-a-dozen dinghies showed up to help, Evans brought ... Hawk. Oh - and two seriously long, seriously heavy shore lines. It took the 2am high tide to actually get off, but we had loads of fun trying hard despite great clouds of testosterone. *grin*

That didn't work out did it? *grin* There was a good bit of dinghy
towing through the week, including my ignominious return to Auspicious when I ran out of dinghy
gas. The Smithsonian Institute research
vessel towed me back belching diesel exhaust
all the way. Thanks to Tovarisch II for lending me some gas to get to the fuel dock
count was a bit over 400 with as many as 65 boats anchored out.
Stuffing Evans and the Siegels (ActiveCaptain) in my smallish dinghy for a Sunday night gathering on Perelandra was great fun.
On behalf of your SSCA many thanks to all who came.
sail fast and eat well, dave
