    cost difference between J24 and J27

    Used sails more available for J/24, J/27 a LOT faster. just get quotes from your loft on sails. Rest of ther boats, J/27 has double spread3r resilient mast and may be newer than the 24. I thnk bioth just as susceptible to balsa core rot. If cruising go verywhere with the 27 using blade, plus get a companionway race dodger for more room below, there is a hug e difference in "livability" between the boats, J/24 is coffin cruising.... As to costs if you already know the difference on slip and haul out and sail costs, very little difference other than those.

    Defending an existing PHRF rating

    Area G ratings are for SoCal and that is a separate certificate, issued by SoCal. PHRFSD issues ratings for San Diego, sometimes boats are rated in SD differently from Area G. In that case the area G (San Diego area board) notifies SoCal of the Area G offset, however that boat still has to apply to SoCal. Thus boats in San Diego often carry both SoCal and SD certificates

    Seriously, you are on the SoCal Board and don't know about SD? SD has its own regional Board and three of them are also SoCal Area G Board.

    That's only if you are still trying to prove yourself. Physically, Etchells are a big challenge for DC, plus he likes to race with friends, albeit mostly very good racer friends. OD racing is part of the scene in SD, but a long way short of the PHRF scene, with a lot of boats and a lot more fun for DC, and many others. DC loves sailing and racing, he's done a lot for the sport, let him do as he likes. And no, he does not win every race, and neither does he care about that. he does not have anything to prove and I'm pretty sure he does not care about that either!
  5. Just checking in to see if you would be interested in Hot Rum #2 tomorrow on J/27
