high life – charleston race week
I like the forecast today! Looking out my window right now, about 200 feet from the harbor’s edge, I can see the very tops of the live oaks rustling just a bit. That means 3-5 knots, and it’s from the N right now. Lots of sun and zero clouds, translation of which is: Seabreeze by noon alters gradiant for 10-15 of NE going E. That’s pretty much money in the bank here, our sea breeze kicks ass. SSTemps are around 65-67 and bikini temps are MUCH hotter, meaning that the breeze is naturally drawn to our college girls.
Justin.TV stats came back, over 3500 people tuned in yesterday at some point, with a surprising number watching the racing on their iPhones, iPads, or other mobile devices. Who knew? Very cool anyway, and today we have a secret special guest that can help with not only the racing, but local history and cool stuff about the harbor, town, and the Tall Ship. And tomorrow we’ll have another guest commentator; this one a round-the-world winning solo racer. This just keeps getting better!
