HTSC Guana Cay Cruise, by Jay Evans: Gnawing at the bit through days of gusty weather, the Hope Town crowd eagerly launched a two wave assault on Guana Cay. The first crew of five boats hit the beach at 5pm on Tuesday in an effort to dispose of all available frosted Grabbers. The second conducted a mop-up operation at noon on The following day. I’m told little was left at the bar when they departed. All were pleased to have had a momentary break in the nasty weather which has prevailed in January.

Dave Pahl reports: Only the strong arrive (or survive)! 17 intrepid HTSC party animals, including Scout the Potcake, made the rough journey down to Cracker P's on Wednesday. March 7th. The Windfinder forecast was right on, and the wind was howling in the low 20's from the SW, with just enough lee to safely dock. Walkabout was the scratch boat of the fleet with Caesar's Ghost winning on corrected time for bringing the Harbor Cats, our entertainment venue. Cracker P's had great lunch specials and gave us 10% off our tab which was a nice gesture. Our Fleet Captain Jay Evans made a good call by not canceling, although it was way too rugged for the SUNFISH sailors and the smaller motorboats. Food, drink, and entertainment flowed freely and everyone made it back before the first rain shower of the approaching cold front.
