The Chainlink

Ever wonder what all those sailboats are up to out there on the Lake? There's one way to find out. I need a few enthusiastic souls to help me race my sailboat this summer. More info on my website, and some pics over here.

So, why bring this up on a cycling forum? You guys are made for sailing, I swear. Get a thrill riding in traffic? Just wait until you see the chaos of a 20 boat fleet 30 seconds before the starting gun. Need to tone those arms while resting those cycling legs? Then grind that line in. Enjoy riding 3-4 seasons in Chicago?  Good. Sometimes we get 3-4 seasons in one race.  Ride brakeless?  We don't have brakes on sailboats, either (and Truant weighs 4 tons). And the Lake Front Path goes right by Monroe Harbor, where we are moored.

Drop me a note if you want to know more.

i'm super interested! i've always wanted to learn to sail. and i think i fit most of your qualifications lol. I was a boyscout, so tying knots is a breeeeze
The only time I talked like a pirate was when we boarded a friendly rival's boat and made off with some cheap beer. Arrrgh -- look lively there, Jimbo me boy! The Harbor Master is about!

Clark,
I wrote a point-by-point response (not always disagreeing, esp. about the boom), then cut it out in favor of this: Yeah, the skipper-crew relationship can get weird. But we're not that intense (and our record proves it).
