One packed crate in the back of our truck, ready to ship to France. Yes, for those of you who know me well, you will note that most of the contents is FOOD :-) Plus a bunch of other important stuff like charts, emergency equipment and more food…..

Xoomer Xpress winners of IRC 1 this weekend at EYC!!  Woohoo!  It was a tricky weekend of racing in ultra light winds in Humber Bay, but our race committee pulled it off and we actually got three races in.  We’ve got an awesome team on Xoomer.  I’m going to miss you guys this fall, but I’ll be thinking of you every time I drag my butt out to the bow of the mini wishing I was fully crewed!  hahahah :-)

One thing is for sure….  I am grateful for this but NEVER want to use it!!  Inland Liferafts and Marine is going to make sure we have the “emergency survival food rations” needed for the race and that my immersion suit is tested and “good to go”.

Thanks to the team at Inland!

This year’s LYRA was one of the toughest over the past few years.  The competition in IRC 1 was Tuff to say the least.  Added to that the wind Gods were particularly crafty over the first two days.  We may not have hit the podium this time on Xoomer, but we’re proud to have gone down fighting against some great competition!  We’ll be back fighting again at EYC in a few weeks!
