Incorrect Code, The Away Team & Another Race Entirely

As this years fleet was crossing the start line at buoy 2, some of us here on shore discovered that none of the pics Flamingo Chris was posting were displaying on the blog. After determining that we had absolutely no idea what was wrong a professional was called in.  

Kris Amundson; IT pro, past Offshore crew, & the only local racer with oar locks on his sailboat, jumped into the breech.  After assessing the sites code he was able to set Flamingo Chris on the right course.  With Kris's insights Chris (confusing isn't  it) had pics up on the blog again in short order.  Below Kris A explains why his Express 27, Spar Trek, is not out there giving the bigger boats a run for their money this year.
Hi, Kris Amundson here. I helped fix the blog earlier and was told I could post something.  Instead of talking about where I work, I'll talk about why I'm not in the Oregon Offshore this year -- Race to Alaska! Last December I obtained an Express 27, named it Spar Trek, and wrangled a crew and named us Away Team. You might see us in the Offshore next year but until then, follow us on the R2AK website ( or on our page:

Kris, I am so excited you are going to do the R2AK this year. It will be quite a challenge, but I am sure it will be worth it. Looking forward to hearing about your adventures.
