Back at It
It's been a long time since I've updated this blog, but with a regatta on the horizon, I figured I'd get back to it. In a couple of days I'm heading down to Miami for the 2nd stop of the 2013 World Cup Series, the Miami OCR. I'll be driving the 20+ hours from NJ to southern Florida for a week of practice and then the event. I'm very excited to get back in the boat.
After Miami, I'm going to head home and back to the shop. But in February I will return to Florida (Clearwater this time) for the Laser Midwinters East. I'm excited at the prospect of sailing two events in the next two months, and I'm hoping I still remember how to sail my Laser.
Running Colie Sails has been going well. It's amazing to see how the job changes all the time. The summer is insane. It's really busy and there's barely time to breathe. Even leading up until Christmas has been pretty busy with a holiday push and fall regattas. Now it's the slow time of the year with fewer customers and more work and stocking up for next year. My employees and I just spent the last month or so making 65 Opti sails, for example, in preparation for the summer. There's a lot to do at all times, just in different ways.
Anyway, check back here and on twitter for updates during my training and the regatta in Miami. I'm anxious to get on the water.
