Captain’s Log: Stardate 10549.6
With enough rain coming down, cells on the way and most of Westchester County about to be renamed Westchester Bay, the Enterprise sat still on the mooring. Even though the bigger cells, which supposedly were accompanied with 40 mph winds, didn’t hit until much later this evening, safe prevailed over sorry.

And we weren’t alone. With over 60 boats registered in the regatta, about 20 showed up to race the short course provided by the captain and crew of the USS Exuberance.

At least we didn’t have to wait long to get our dinner.

Commander Dave was SIC for the evening, mainly due to the storm mentioned earlier. Ensign Ryan also had a conflict, but that was more work-induced.

During dinner, we discussed Block Island Race Week, in which both USS Chaika and USS Exhilaration had impressive results in each of their divisions. While official dates haven’t been posted yet, we should plan on competing in the 2007 race (Should be mid-June.) That’s 24-months notice, guys, to make sure you’re NOT SIC. Hire babysitters, surrogate husbands, whatever. We’ll be gone for a week of racing and partying – Block Island-style.

In the meantime, I’m getting details about the July 9-10 overnighter. I’ll let everyone know what we’re doing by tomorrow.
