Good news is I got a partner to cover my call for 3 hours tomorrow morning so I can ride!

Bad news is she can only cover 6AM-9AM so I will have to get up extra early to ride. I will have to put some butter on my pillow tonight so I can get up oily in the morning.

Mainly day sails and overnights until we go cruising for two weeks in September. Was going to do a delivery from Annapolis to Portland Me with friends, but that got canceled. Could do one or two classic boat regattas on my main Bermuda ride later in the summer, but the 2-week quarantine for out of staters in Maine is posing logistical problems for the owner. I'm also not at all sure I want to get on any airplanes this summer.

Airplanes at this point are prolly cleaner than any other public place.

Friend of mine just flew up from DFW. Huge plane. Maybe 15 people on the flight.

The planes are getting completely wiped down and cleaned after each leg, which is what I was referring too.

See, this would be the ideal time for me to fly... half my issues are from being crammed in tight with other people for it. Just nowhere to go...

They are closed spaces full of people without masks. Dirty surfaces don't really concern me.

I think at least American requires masks at all times (presumably excluding meals).

In a couple weeks, days will start getting shorter. :(

They all say they are, but compliance is poor and there is no enforcement.

As part of the re-opening the church I go to is doing stuff like cleaning carpet and changing sinks. The sinks were old anyway, so whatever, but I'm thinking the airborne particles are way more important for virus transmission than what kind of faucet the bathroom sinks have.

This is not to say it doesn't happen, but at least to my limited knowledge, there has not been a single proven case of fomite transmission of COVID-19.

The Maya Riviera is opening soon. They have their issues in the best of times. But, money talks.

Youíve never watched the film ďContagionĒ? Good film, and topical.

I remember that from high school, around 1969-70. I was at a school which was 45% Latino.
