  • Very cool. Yes, I'll be there. Funny, I grew up here, worked at Kemah Hardware delivering marine lumber and pilings, etc. and only now as I'm older learning to really love this sport. That was back when there was a draw bridge there. Now they're tearing down the bridge I delivered supplies to when it was being built....

    Looking forward to meeting, learning and getting involved. Understand races should start back up next week or the week after.

  • charlescarlisToday did some active water social distancing. 70 minutes parking lot to water, fussing with jib for 20 of that. 45 minutes to break down, but sloppy. Lightning and in a hurry. GREAT sail, but really, really busy on the water. Scared the kids with the speed today-they loved it. Awesome. Everyone was all proper and protective at ramp. I think my most appropriate time will be around 45. I'm good with that.



    I heard y'all had quite the experience.. especially watching the powerboats scurry...

    I'm looking to set up a sail day/tuning session at TCD (if it's open) June 6th. Hopefully you can make it.

    I'll be racing WNR on Clear Lake from the ramp - FYI.

    I use a gin pole permanently attached to my traile


    Now that is cool! Do you have pictures of the full set up on the site?

  • I'll do pics as soon as the weather breaks here. Probably take off Friday and sail off the Dike. That'll give me the opportunity to document it as I'll have more time. Doing it all over, I would not have made my gin pole supports out of cable - I would have just built a triangle and used 2 hinges. The bumper-stops (2 keel stops) place the cat perfectly every time for the gin pole - no thinking.

    I'll be there on the 6th - no doubt. And, yup - WNR - looking forward to it.

  • WNR was nicely attended, but only saw a couple of cats - couldn't tell who/what they were. Will get some experience and then play...
