Thanks Vic... That picture of the new boat makes it look bigger than the 332 feet LOA.

Thanks to Bahama Bound, Compromise, Knot Shore, My Time and Storm Walker (with crutches) for making the 3rd Holy City Mac Roundup another success story. In spite of light winds and unusually warm weather, we still managed to get some nice sailing in and see some of the town.

If there is a MacGregor Class drink, I think it's a Pain Killer. Good thing our bartender, Victoria, was well up to the challenge. The Blind Tiger Pub was ready to a accommodate some hungry and thirsty sailors.

What was great about this roundup was that we had new owners on their :macm: for the first time. Storm Walker provided excellent instruction on their fam ride. Doug and Sandy on My Time (soon to be renamed Sandy Cay) are now fully checked out by Capt Ron and Cindy. In true Storm Walker style, the are planning a transatlantic crossing in a couple of weeks.

Awesome pictures, I'm also glad to see Storm Walker's crew out and about. I can't wait to get down there myself.

As usual a thank you to our hosts Bob and Lynn who provided us with a great weekend for sailing and touring. 8) Also a thank you to everyone else for your support during our time of incapacitation, broke leg and not from the pain killers, :) and a special thanks goes out to the crew of My Time who allowed us to teach you everything that you want to avoid such as sailing backwards, getting ungrounded etc... :P I would also like to say we hope to see this crew on a lot more of our outings. :wink:
