Midnight Ramblin’

Well it’s about 4am California Time.  I’m not sure what time it is out here since we are traversing a number of time zones (with nothing in them) , but we are getting close to Hawaii time.  So I guess it it’s a little after midnight locally.  The graveyard shift might be in the cockpit […]


So what a Pac Cup we are having… Since our departure from the California coastline, we have had solid breeze…  and the outlook for the rest of the race is pretty sweet, too.  We are into day 4 of the race aboard J World’s Hula Girl and are quite enjoying the ride…  well, now that […]

J World’s Hula Girl is Back in Action!

Time to get you all report number one from J World’s Hula Girl in the 2016 Pacific Cup! We just started day three of our 2016 Pacific Cup, and things are starting to settle in. The world is leveling off, and (dare we even think it?) drying off. We started in the typical freshening SF […]

J/105 Clinic Wrap Up

You know, I’m not the best salesman.  I don’t really believe in the hard sell process.  So whenever I have to write a wrap-up like the one I’m doing now, I hesitate at launching into what a great event we just had.  It just sounds too good to be true, like I am just blowing […]

Happy Alumni Tales

We here at J/World love getting tales of adventure from our alumni!  Another of these just popped up in our inbox, and we thought we would share it.  This comes from our friend Gary who took classes with us a couple years ago then set off to do it on his own: I’ve had a […]
