    I got one in the lap one night, scared the crap out of me as I was half asleep at the time.

    I know a few women like Clarisse here in Zurich (same mannerisms). Generally I'd agree with cortosam, not my type for sure. However, in her case she's proved in the Classe Mini that she's a hell of a sailor and she's doing great so far in this race so she's ok by me.

    Considering he's got a ripped zipper on his J2 and no hydro I'm ok with easing off. Pretty sure he's no slacking.

    It's quite possible to control pitch with variable sweep. If movement in that axis also give damage mitigation then it's not a bad idea.

    from the press release: "The starboard foil was damaged. The low hold (low support point of the foil, junction between the foil and the boat) and the foil well (it is in this well that the foil passes through the boat) are no longer attached to the boat." That does not sound good.

    A PLB is required to have a 121.5 homing signal as well. EPIRBS are not required to have the 121.5 but may.
