Ginger and I would want a couple. I am down a shirt size I think, or was, LOL
She is down several........ lucky girl!

Let me know, I would probably buy a couple just because I wear my other one alot, and it might be awhile before they are available again!

  I agree with you Steve, the more boats and sailors the merrier. Maybe we should do a little advertising around the Midwest to get a few more boats at the CLR each year. Also I and a couple other boats were sailed single handed, could we welcome some sailors to come with out there boats? Just thinking out loud, not trying to make more work for you Steve.

Steve put me down for a couple of XL t-shirts.  Is there going to be a theme to this years CLR?
Can hardly wait to get sailing.

Just talking about Compac clothing this past week.  Husband loves having shirts, jackets and hats to show off the what toys he has.  We would be interested in shirts.

Any update on the t-shirts, Carl? 

I'm helping Steve with the race planning this year.  I've mapped out a similar course to the 2015 race, just a teeny bit shorter.
Due to my other computer having issues at the moment I can't share the course map or regurgitate starting times, but I'll try to get that out for all to see soon.    Anyway, if the buoys are placed in the correct spot, I will have the exact course distance set (to the foot). This will help with accurate start times and an attempt to create a realistic PHRF rating for our boats. Based on past race results the CP16's will be given a higher rating, thus an earlier start.   The goal here is being as fair of a race as possible, which also implies a potential tight configuration near the finish line. 

A big change to the race this time is the race will not be over until the last boat has crossed the finish line.  This will help to tweak the following years start times by boat and give you the captain a good idea how your boat handles against others on all points of sail, and for longer distances.

Bob,

Absolutely cheating is encouraged, it wouldn't be a CLR race without a little "fair" play!!!

Just to throw out some cheating ideas...

-leader pops the balloons that will help locate the race markers.
-General boat sabotage..you know, anchor dragging, rigging changes, extra ballast, banana on the rudder, etc.
-Kites, spinnakers, drifters, extended masts, grandma's bed sheets, whatever you can muster.
-Be named Rich or Matt, or look like them.
