Cirrus Blog's New Clothing

Different from the fairy tale story, this new clothing is real. How do you like it?

I took advantage of Google's new Template Designer and cheap labor (my daughter is a graphics designer) and put a fresher look on the blog, though it might be more the real Cirrus, which at this very moment is in need of a touch-up.

You may notice a few technical improvements. One is a broader width - just enough so that the hot selling netbooks with their limited-width screens can be used easily. Using the new template also makes it easier for looking at the blog with smart phones. All that by some genius programmer(s) at Google.

The tab bar right underneath the header is also new, and will be filled with easy-access info.

For any suggestions, complaints, ideas add a comment to the post, Ulli

P.S. no further update since Chris' last post; Cirrus was built with those conditions in mind, so the boat will be fine, but the crew might be a bit shaken.

    These are excellent and refreshing changes. You and your daughter do great work.

    Your right about Cirrus built for weather like this, its also true of the excellent skipper at the its helm.

    I am Kathy's husband. Could you please email me your contact info? Thanks.


  3. Bill and Crew,
    I plan to be at the RYC for your arrival, unless it's an ungodly hour. Is there anything you would like me to bring?
    Cheering you on for the last leg of your journey!
    P.S. I would appreciate it if other persons planning to greet the sailors on arrival would contact me at or my cell 510-207-7813.

  4. Hi, Ulli.
    I love the format. But it says that there are 0 comments, and there are actually three. As such, people might miss Uta's comments asking if others are greeting the boat. Can that be fixed?

    Thanks for all you do. It enhances the entire effort!

    Agnes and Uta,

    Please note that Chris in an earlier blog mentioned that the boat may go directly to KKMI, a boatyard and not straight to RYC. Apparently this is related to the engine issue.


  6. I hate it... mostly because it is Bill's site, Bill created it and unless he asked you to do this I don't think you should have. If it was by request then it's none of my business and what I think doesn't matter.
