How did someone named Capt. Grumpy get that sweetheart in the 1st pic? Anyway thanks for the report, beautiful boats, makes sitting here at work at least tolerable.
My genes skiped a generation I think. Alison brought me good luck with her anchor dress. Got a second place.
So your poor daughter is cursed and can’t (shouldn’t?) have children of her own?
Nice report Captain Grumpy, thanks for sharing it with us. What boat won Best of Show?
