Hi all, Ive recently found out about an anual race that happens up here in rochester, NY, called the Scotch Bonnet. It's ~ 75 nm, across Lake Ontario and back north to south. I don't have a lot of racing experience besides 420's with the college team, but I'll regularly sail my 23 5-10 miles offshore, and though this would be a cool thing to do with my dad for Father's Day. Just looking for input from others - does this sound like a decent idea, or am I setting myself up for trouble? I wouldn't set off if the forecasts are *too* ugly, but I don't mind sailing under a reefed main alon in 25-30 knots Ken - I'm especially interested in what you have to say, because this is your race!
