76Max Ebb — It's About Time

It was the first big race weekend of the year, and I was invited to call tactics on a boat much bigger, faster and newer than my own. Etiquette demanded that I arrive a little before dock time, for this first invite on a new ride, but I was not the only crew waiting at the locked dock gate.
