OK, let me make this clear; Rancho Deluxe won our division or said another way, we were 1st in class and 8th in the overall fleet!

I will get some pictures up asap, but right now it's fun to play on the beach and get 10 hours of sleep per night.

I would like to thank all of you who posted comments and or sent e-mails. It has really kept this thing alive for the crew.

Happy Endings!

We had a great day racing yesterday!

We sailed all day then entered the Molokai Chanel at 11:00pm for a wild ride to the Diamond Head finish. Radio contact is made at 100 miles, 25 miles and 3 miles to go. We listened all night to hear about Tower but they had not reported in yet so we were optimistic.

Had a fun ride through the channel and then made the turn to the finish line, some of the more exciting sailing of the trip as we had 3 gybes with winds in excess of 25 knots.

We fininshed around 3:30 am and were met at the dock by Betty, Laura, JJ, Max, Ava, Eileen and Louise Diepenbrock...the last 2 being a complete surprise!

Once we cleared the technical and safety inspections we were given lei's and mai tais, kisses and more mai tais!

Oh yeah, we won our class.

More later,
Jim
