      Late April, 1851
      Capt. Jean-Luc Baptiste

      April 16th, 1851
      Ahh, Montreal.  How we love your sites, culture, food and women!  I managed to finally crawl from between the sheets and a couple of young, lithe 'ladies' and realized that I'd squandered an entire week!  I quickly rushed to the Fleur and we cast off for London and the Regatta.  

      April 20th, 1851
      We were in luck.  The wind was extremely compliant with our needs and we cruised into London without a hitch (wind = 77).  We signed up for the Regatta just as the Red Cloud passed into view.  What a monster!  With a sinking feeling, I knew the Fleur isn't its match.  Then I saw the White Cruiser.  There was an adversary worthy of our efforts!  Capt. Cline's exploits were legendary, so I looked forward to the competition.  

      April 21st, 1851
      Damnation the Red Cloud is a blazer!  It was gone in a hare's breath, leaving the rest of us looking like we were standing still!  The Cruiser and the Fleur were in a heated race, but we were deftly edged out by Cline's crew at the end (speed roll = 98).  Sa la vie!  Our only hope for a prize is that the 'Bad-Ass Cow' didn't cross the finish line before we did!  We could use the silk sails to increase our speed!
