houston oil spill

It’s fascinating to see just how quickly cleanups can go when the oil companies’ profits are at stake; just a few days have passed since an oil barge and bulk carrier collided in the Houston Ship Channel, releasing nearly 200,000 gallons of the stickiest, heaviest fuel oil into Galveston Bay.   The spill contaminated 19 miles of shoreline and shut down the ultra-busy Ship Channel, making it impossible for a number of major refineries to get their product to market.  Had their bottom line not be so impacted, our cat sailing friends at Texas City Dike Yacht Club and the crew on the tall ship Elissa might be waiting for years for a real cleanup.  Though if you are considering sailing in the Bay, given the nature of oil companies’ ‘cleanup efforts’, we’d recommend a very thick wetsuit for a decade or two.  And even when it’s clean, maybe not.

The George Strait title shout proves we too can go country, from time to time.

Rob Doolittle and Bob Hodges took the second ever VX-One North American Championship last weekend in a 21-boat fleet out of Rush Creek YC in Texas.  Full results here, full story here, and a couple of nice photo galleries (and the above shot) from Rush Creek YV here.

The super light, super quick VX-One continues to please, growing especially well on the Gulf Coast…check ‘em out here.

Texas J/24er James K sends this gem in and wins Sailor Chick of the Week honors for his lovely wife.  We won’t say this is her best angle, but it’s a damned good one.

I finally talked my wife into buying a second boat that still only has a bucket (ladies like real heads for some unknown reason) and restoring it. Here is my most incredible lady – Linda Kondziela – cleaning the keel sump of our Evelyn 32-2 prior to glassing and installing frames.
