In training for the Banderas Bay Regatta next week

NUEVO VALLARTA, Nayarit, Mexico - The Admiral and I started our training regimen today for the Banderas Bay Regatta which begins one week from today (Wednesday).

We took a long walk on the beach, swam in the pool, drank only one beer with lunch and one margarita with dinner.

The sacrifices we make to get into shape.

Of course it could be argued that a week is hardly enough time to get into shape for anything, let alone a major sailboat event like this with probably 50+ boats entered and lots of people who actually know what they are doing.

Well, we have a week and after watching the new movie about Sarah Palin, all things are possible.

Watch the HBO special on Sarah Palin called 'Game Change' to see how she prepped and almost made it to VP of the United States. Um, actually that's not a good example, but watch it anyway. What a piece of work that woman is.

In the meantime, we will do our best to get ready so we can help Captain Clarence and Sharon aboard Lotus to a victory. Rounding out the crew will be three-time BBR Lotus crew Laura and a newcomer to Team Lotus, Rhinehart, Laura's amigo.

By next week we will be tan, fit and rested, just like Richard Nixon was in his election campaign.

Oops, another bad example...

But we will be ready anyway.
