SHTP - News from the General


 Ken (The General) Roper has posted his first log report.  It is clear that he is squeezing all the performance out of his Finn Flyer, Harrier:

All is well aboard Harrier. Having found a "heavy" glass bottle of Pacifico, the skipper is forced to sit in the cockpit watching the the breeze pick up and consume said bottle of beer in order to lighten the ship and pick up that extra knot or two. Watch out! all those with bets in place!

The General, who used to be an Army General, is participating in his eleventh official Single Handed Transpac. Apparently he sailed the course another time without entering.  He is believed to be 81 years old.

Check out all the skipper's log reports.
