    There is that one in the classifieds.
  2. Tanzer 22 is a great boat. Growing up we sailed Catalina 22s out of Oceanside and a Tanzer in Puget Sound and the Tanzer was just so much more boat in every possible way.

    Why the Rustler 36?

    View from the cockpit just as good? No.
  4. Until now I couldn't conceive how this accident could happen. We have club dinghies sail in waters with stationary yachts all summer long, year after year, and nothing has ever happened. Now it makes sense, given the opportunity, I would hit that thing with a club 420 too.

    Pukers United – For those that have

    That deserved a few clicks on the Googlewebs: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8747609 (impressive results, I love the experiment design but wish the sample size were a bit larger, somebody's gonna need a bigger boat) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15018290 (less promising but what in the hell is "optokinetic drum rotation"?)

    Internets show about 1.010 for a Melges 24. Good luck!

    Shhhh, don't tell Christophe or he will just bore you with stories about crossing the Bay of Biscay in November.

    It is truly rare that you see so much insanity executed to such perfection on such a grand scale.

    Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Google Assistant forwarded this to me. Somehow got the idea that I'd be interested in nutjobs drifting around the world's oceans. Score one for Google.

    This should be the next craft for Rimas https://www.france24.com/en/20181226-frenchman-sets-sail-across-atlantic-barrel

    Route du Rhum 2018

    Makes perfect sense. Start by crossing of the Bay of Biscaye in early November. Cross the Atlantic in hurricane season. Finish in the lee of an island with a mark close to shore, no way to steer around that lee. Race for madmen. Where do I sign up?

    Letting go of tiller, cookies ensue.

    I believe that this is actually due to the change in heel which moves the CE. The further the boat is heeled over, the further the CE is moved outboard to weather, the more weather helm.
