My vote...

Third weekend in May usually seems about right. Between Mothers day and Memorial day weekends and the tides are interesting though not extreme.

Fred is right, third weekend in May. Last year it was Saturday, May 19th. This year, Saturday, May 17th. New moon on the following Monday, but that time of year, strong tides aren't necessary.

I would hope that we can pick one of the days for a rip trip. Now that we can take more than 10 guys...I would think we can fill the slots, but I suspect we might not get the "whole" crowd on one trip so maybe schedule rip trips each day of the Clave so that all clave participants can go atleast one day and then the usual spots the other days...Weather permitting naturally and if Keith will be in operation.

thats a new record for clave anticipation... December of the previous year!

I have a sneaky feeling it will be even better than last year which would be mind-boggling.

Canal space is available for Friday for the two-handed crowd. Good time to try out a few pencil poppers, as well

Rip Trips

John,

I am hoping to have the boat back in the water in April to do some cruises during the kids April Vacation, so I will be in the water for the Clave.

I certainly hope no battery issues for '08 - how many times did we cross the Canal that morning?
