Hi from SoCal!

Hi everyone - I'm excited to join this site. I grew up as a dinghy sailor and currently own an I-14, but made the move to bigger boats in college a few years back. I skipper a J80 and try to race on whatever boats have spots available. Lately, it's been mostly day races and some short distance races, but I have a good bit of miles sailing offshore in Southern England and an Atlantic crossing under my belt. The long term goal right now is to get into shorthanded offshore racing, but that's not to say I don't enjoy the occasional relaxing cruise or charter!

Re: Hi from SoCal!

We were doing a beer can race a couple of weeks ago and had to dodge the J boats on one course and the FT10s on another. Well, luckily, we didn't have to actually dodge - the J boat that came closest was on a port tack while we were on starboard

Glad it worked out for you and hopefully didn't mess up your race. I've been out of commission for a few weeks post-knee surgery, so I'm fairly certain it wasn't me getting in your way, haha!
