Race in the Tuesday night Duck Dodge "beer can" race.  "The no class race with class" is a fun, yet competitive (at least for some) race on Lake Union.  Looking for a few hands for fun (but don't have big illusions about wining the race).  It is Pirate Night theme, so dress up if you can.  Those who've taken the racing class are encouraged to sign up.  Some spinnaker experience will probably be provided too.  Contact the skipper for details.
