    I’m jealous that I can’t make North California Rondy.

    And I hope you have Great weather.

    My request is that someone takes pictures (Lots) interior& exterior,

    I always looking forward to seeing someone else’s boat, and the custom features

    that have been made. You’ve seen one Westsail, You’ve seen one Westsail, non are alike

    Maybe some video and post them for the rest of the

    unlucky Westsailors that can’t make it.

    Have a Great Time

    Best & Thanks in advance

    Hi Ted: 

    I'm sorry you can't make the Nor Cal rondy - the weather will be HOT  on Friday the forecast is ~106 Deg and Saturday in the ~90's. 

    Last year, we had a rain shower on Thursday and much cooler weather over the weekend. The rain showed us how much water will leak into the boat from under the cap rails !!! 

    When Google had Google Plus functioning I was able to easily publish/share all the images collected about Westsailors by just linking in the Google Plus site. After Google Plus was canceled a few years ago - I have to link each Google album individually and there are over 100 albums to link somewhere on the site. 

    Most of the "value added" items are in the Members' Area (if you are a free Forum Member then the link will be blocked.)

    See https://www.westsail.org/imagesmembers

    Also, if a member wants to download a picture from a shared Google album - then they first have to create a Google account(free). Many are reluctant to establish this account. 

    Making a movie of the Rondy is a reasonable idea and I've made a few simple videos - but this takes a lot of time and even more talent. See https://youtu.be/Qn6oq0ZdsU4  Also someone needs to take the images.

    If a member has published a movie of their Westsail, a search of YouTube will show many channels with Westsail creators. 

    There is also a YouTube channel for the WOA with quite a few clips - see the link at the bottom of most pages. 

    I hope this explains the situation.

    Hi Jay         
    Thank- You For Your Reply, Even If It’s Not What I Want To Hear.       
    I’ve Talked About This With Younger Family Members, And They Mentioned
    WOA Facebook Account, That Would Be Open To Anyone. 
    Is Something Like This Possible?     
    Thanks Ted

    The Mike Poor is the admin on the Westsail Group... see the link at the bottom of the home page. 

    I've got a video of the rondy started -- but it will be a while before its released on the WOA YT channel... There will be quite a few images of interiors.
