Captain’s Log: Stardate 10369.6
Last night marked the end of this year’s Wednesday Night Race Series, and, in what seemed to be this year’s theme, the race was canceled for lack of wind. The good news, however, is that this cancellation cemented the standings and kept the Enterprise in 2nd place for the season. Congratulations to the crew on a job well done.

Although we do plan on racing in a few fall regattas, I thought now would be the best time to look back on some of the highlights:
----------
Dave: “How many kids do you have?”
Hilde: “Four”
Dave: “Four? What were you thinking?”
----------
The Laser / Silver Pants Incident
----------
Dave: “Release the lazy sheet!”
Edd: “Release the lazy sheet!”
Richard: “Release the lazy sheet!”
Edd slaps the lazy sheet out of Rich’s hand.
----------
The Saga of Fat Free Potato Chips, Rogaine and Kurt’s Mother
----------
Patty: “I think my father gave it to me.”
----------
Tune-Spooge
----------
Edd: “Who’s that behind us?”
Jory: “Tolo and Exuberance.”
Edd: “Didn’t they go spinnaker?”
----------
Decisions, decisions, decisions….
“Maybe we should change sails.” (15 knots of breeze)
“Get the 135 on the deck.” (20 knots of breeze)
“Get that sail down NOW!” (45 knots of breeze)
----------
Last night’s conversation:
Edd: “Congratulations on your win. A well-sailed season.”
Charlie Malloy: “Thanks. Not bad for a gay Klingon.”
----------
Mitch: “Is it only raining on the upwind legs?”
----------
The secret to successful sailing: Forget wind. Forget current. Play the barges.
----------
Rich: “You can go further.”
Edd: “When I can see what television show they’re watching inside the house, I tack.”
----------
June’s Kidney Stone: The Asteroid Has Cleared the Wormhole
----------
Lefty: “Head up or head down!”
Surcease Captain: “She scared the shit out of me.”
(Later on in the club) Edd: “Sorry. She scares us sometimes too.”
----------
Patty: “How am I supposed to know where North is?”
----------
Mitch: “That does not look like the girl from Surcease. I know the girl from Surcease.”
Edd: “What’s her name?”
Mitch: “I don’t know.”
Rich: “Know that tattoo on her thigh?”
Mitch: “Are your binoculars better than mine?”
----------
Turbo Jetta (think “Racing on Eagle”)
----------
Patty Stark: “Yeah, well, watch out for Eagle in the Fall.”
Edd: “Funny, my crew says the same thing. But I don’t think it has the same meaning.”
----------

Thanks, guys, for another great year of Wednesday Night Sailing.
