    It’s a proposal for an in-port race boat, that will likely never happen. Did you spawn Alinghi4ever on a crack binge? There’s a distinct family similarity appearing

    Here is a potential solution for DF. Only did the leader here, as there is no appreciable difference in separation for the top four. 11.17 miles east/west between Df and Brunel/Akzo projected path and 3.38 between Df and Mapfre/Vestas, both of whom are looking to follow DF's lead.

    ...you should try racing sailboats,,, ANY sailboats sometime. The same dramas can happen on a 2 mile course. .....oh, but I guess you'd hate that.

    Here’s a look at a group of us to the West, and only those that are on the B group list above. Interesting to compare this view with the leaderboard. East is king in the rankings for now. I like where I am right now, pretty happy for the moment.

    The image of Terry Hutchinson on board Fauth's 72-foot Bella Mente just about sums their campaign up. Last year they mentioned with some pride that instigating a post-race debrief improved their performance.

    Well..thanks for that..it came from a J/29 regatta back in the day at Key West Race Week in like 1999..we'd been last all week, and even though we were bringing up the rear, we had a great team effort and made a nice move at the bottom mark and passed a boat or two, and I got up on the rail and said, 'Hey we just picked up a boat and we are not last, so Hike, Bitches!' We ended up 9th or 10th out of 10 boats in the regatta but that moment of glory was great.. My avatar is actually a picture of all of us hiking our asses off on the J/29 'Rhumb Punch', and we won that class a few years later at the now defunct KWRW. Hike your ass off until you can't hold the heavy#1 upwind even while feathering the mainsail and then hold on downwind!!! But, none of that really matters when you are racing in the Florida Keys in January and not freezing your ass off in Maryland. Florida in January = better than Maryland in January. Here's to hoping that Key West Race Week comes back and lives another day!!! (or week!!)

    Glad to see Brunel making a little progress up the leader board. And I mean a little!

    Big deal, he's still got a rudder. Tell him to saw that off and then I'll be impressed.

    What the fuck does that have to do with a comment about fanboys?

    Fanboys are often tediously monotonous.
