Barney Dies, Pope Resigns, Midnight Madness Returns

Spoondrift Midnight Madness

Last week George W. Bush’s office announced that Barney, the USA ex-President’s Scottish Terrier, had passed away.

OK, I know many of you thought these events were somehow linked, and their temporal correlation could not  be attributed to mere happenstance.

North Sea Hotlaps 2013 v103Be that as it may, I think we owe a tribute to both Barney and Benedict, and so I’m dedicating tonight’s Midnight Madness sail to this B&B Dynamic Duo.

We’ll meet at 9:00PM at the Breadnut Line in North Sea, and do a couple rounds of the Hotlaps Course. The wind is 15kt and 225deg, with no variance.

As you sail the route, don’t forget when you tack on a dog-leg of the course, be sure to give a Woot for Barney!
