Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Yeah, it would plane in about 13 true. Carried a symmetrical with an over length carbon pole for light airs, and the Assy for the fun days. When it was light, we could pole the spin way back and carry speed virtually DDW. No one could go as deep. It was a really fun boat.

So, you raced it in mixed sportboat fleets? Did you have to declare both spinns?

Yeah, it was mixed. There were only 15 Rockets made, so no 1D racing. Our club was pretty small, so we were mixed with J80, Olson 30, Wavelength 24, Santana 30/30, and some others. In local regattas, it would be J80, Melges 24, and Vipers. This was before the J70 and other similar boats became more common. One regatta we took the boat to, we were fleated with boats 10-15 foot o get, like Tripp 36s. That was interesting. Big fight for clean air at the starts.

For club racing we were rated with both spins. For most regattas we had to chose one.

Through an odd set of circumstances, Mrs. GeneJockey and I got to take advantage of free sailing classes at Olympic Sailing Club in Berkeley. We both actually passed the beginning course in Cal 20s, and entered the Intermediate course, in J24s. It was fun, but we discovered we each had an unfixable problem. I get seasick when running before the wind - feels like wallowing, rather than speeding along at the zippy pace you're actually going. Mrs. GeneJockey by contrast had a problem with sailing close to the wind - when the boat was heeled over and she was on the windward side, she couldn't convince herself she wasn't going to fall right over the leeward gunwale into the water. Kind of like the feeling you get in a steep balcony in a theater, that no matter how far back your seats are, if you lean too far forward you'll fall right over the railing onto the seats below.

But we have a couple months of weekend fun discovering it - sailing for a couple hours on the Bay, learning things we'd never even thought of before, wolfing down food at some old-style seafood lace in Berkeley after.

Good for you guys. The Bay is a fantastic place to sail, but the sport is clearly not for everyone. I get reliably seasick for the first 72 hrs on the ocean, and not just nauseated but headachy and depressed, but I keep going out there.

I bet you'd be fine, maybe a bit of a tendency to flare high

I was actually shocked at how well things went, I had about a 10kt crosswind on the asphalt takeoff and didn't get too far off the centerline. Thankfully the landing was straight in to the wind on the grass. I had a bit of an incomplete flare so I skipped a little bit but no real drama. The highlight of the day was being really high on final and throwing the thing in to a massive side slip - very thankful I still remembered how to do that

If the Energizer Bunny had kids, he'd need rechargables.

Bike ride in the morning - stiff winds again - family zoo trip after. Half-assed football watching in the afternoon, while half-assed assisting the wife with cleaning the windows.

Yesterday I drove on roads I usually ride on. I saw three cyclists coming the other way and had the urge to wave at them.
