We Need Wind

HELLLOOOO, race enthusiasts! It's beautiful here at the finish line in Victoria, but our racers are in a holding pattern off Cape Flattery without wind. We need help creating the wind with prayers, rituals, superstitious deeds, and semi-scientific procedures to help our racers. I've heard of such things as biting the heads off mackerels, sailors dancing in their undies, while others are brewing up some top-secret, special family recipe chili. We are currently doing our part by sending a crew to the end of the breakwater with a jigger of 10-year-old bourbon as an offering to King Neptune. Whatever it takes, we need to get our race boats into the Strait of Juan de Fuca by 17:00 to catch a favorable wind and tide.
