24 hours til start

Got a lot done on Jeroboam last night including strapping on the dive gear and giving the bottom a good scrub. Glad I did as a months worth of growth was more than evident. Still to go on my pre-race list includes:
Offload scuba gear and some other random stuff
Set up jacklines, horseshoe buoy, deck knifes
Run spin sheets & tackline
Set up barberhaul blocks and lines
Set up staysail quick launch gear
Strike the dodger & grill and throw in the dingy
Chuck a bunch of other stuff in the dingy like dock lines and fenders
Set up cockpit for racing
Dump excess water from tanks
Attend skippers meeting tonight at 6
Final weather check and route planning

Weather is shaping up beautifully for not only the race up but the delivery back to Marblehead as well. As soon as I cross the finish line, I have to u-turn and scoot back to be at my desk Monday morning. So far the breeze is forecasted to start SW then clock to NW through Saturday night. Sunday is still a little questionable as the models don't agree on the occluded front & trof paths but as long as it's anything but SW, I'll be in good shape.

Here's a link to the scratch sheet.
