2016 Austin

After spending some time in Dallas – Jess and I headed down to Austin to explore the city and surrounding area.  One of the first things we did was visit the Hamilton Pool Preserve.  It was an overcast day, we were there early and it was pretty deserted.

We visited some other parks, walked a portion of the trail around Lady Byrd ‘lake’ and visited an exhibit of Dr. Suess art.  Those are all the things we did between eating awesome food at a variety of places around town.

2016 Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters Championship

It was the 35th Anniversary of the Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters Championship and the regatta is finally old enough to be a competitor.  The color coral commemorates a 35th anniversary and the shirts we designed turned out pretty cool:

The first day saw medium winds just into the double digits with mostly clear skies.  In 5 races we had some close competition up top between Gavin O’Hare and Charlie Brewer who both finished the day tied with 20 points.  Mike Schmidt was close behind in the 41 boat fleet.

Alain and his kitchen crew prepared another fabulous me and a tent city popped up full of sailors.

Sunday started out with no wind and we waited ashore as it began to build about an hour later.  A little lighter than yesterday we ran a little shorter courses and made it through 4 more races.  Charlie and Gavin stayed close and Gavin managed to edge just ahead of Charlie to win the championship.

Thanks to Alain, Rick, Len, Frank and everyone else who helped make this another great Chesapeake Bay Laser Masters Championship.  And after 13 years of only being the event chair – I’ll be looking forward to next year where I can both run it and qualify to sail in it!

2015 UCI U23 Bike World Championship Richmond

Richmond hosted the UCI Road Bike Racing World Championship September 17-27.  I took Friday afternoon off to watch the U23 championship on the streets of Richmond.  They did 10 laps on a ~17m course.  I started at the east end of the course and worked my way west zig zagging my way across the city on foot to watch.  After watching a lap on Monument Avenue I took an Uber back to the start/finish.

What amazed me:

  • How tight the packs of bikes raced
  • How fast they went
  • How many support vehicles there were and how fast they went
  • How many people there were out watching

And watching other parts of the race on TV/ipad really showed how cool Richmond is and I was proud to see it on stage for the world.

Here are some of the sights and sounds that I saw:

Royall Cup

Such a great time to play some soccer at the end of the day.   Literally put blood, sweat and tears into this… after I got hit with a soccer ball while filming and the camera cut my forehead, and tears when I missed the sudden death penalty kick putting my team out of the final.  Was a fun video to make and there’s never been a better time for me to start a rap career on the side.

I recently got a new Fujifilm FinePix XP200 Waterproof Digital Camera and just gave it to my friends while we were racing.  This is what they took and I’m pretty impressed with the camera and how it came out.

Some video and pictures from Fishing Bay Yacht Club’s One Design Invitational Regatta sailed in Front Runners and San Juan 21.
