Seeking a Hall Pass

I've been invited to sail the Newport Bucket Regatta over the weekend of July 15 - 17. The event is hosted by the Newport Shipyard in RI - at the moment details are scarce but I'll update as I know more. In the meanwhile any idea of what I can suggest my wife do with our three month old and three year old while I'm off for a weekend of sailing? Initial ideas are 1) have her visit friends on the Cape 2) hire a nanny to help her for the weekend ($$) 3) leave without tellling her and phone her from the race course...

Suggestions/comments are very welcome... Sorry for the slow start after the holiday weekend but we'll be back up to speed shortly.

Bring them along! I grew up in a family of sailors and when my dad was off racing CORK my mother and I would come up and camp out. I got to hang out at the yacht club with my dad, and I have a lot of good memories growing up around regattas like that.

man you are so right - thank you for talking some sense into me. I want my boy to have the same sort of memories and the 3 month old girl...let's just say it will be good practice for her ;-)

those car seats are heavy....if you can rig some sort of traveller to keep her up on the windward side the captain will be very appreciative. Of course, I'm kidding. Sure.

Have a good race.
