If 20-30 boats jumped, how come there was only one 30' Cigarette out in front of everybody else? I was south of Squaw Island and watched the start and Kurt just got a great, legal start. It was a performance Bill Muncey would have been proud of. Your boat looked awesome, especially later in the day when you were blasting across the lake back toward Jordan Bay at about 110 or so. A great day had by all.

Slingshot effect?
Legal start?
Timed start perfectly?

Was this a race or a poker run? Sounds like a Reggie-fest.

I though a "legal start" in a poker run meant that eveyone had life jackets on and the captain was deemed sober.
