    IOR is dead for a reason

    i only raced it when it was the audi/north race week but man, that was a very hectic, packed starting line of the 35's with lots of yelling. some of the best buoy racing i have ever been a part of. we got destroyed but it was very fun. seth morell was an animal on the start line. i was on a schock 34GP with schock 35's and j/35's, almost like a one design race.

    ahh thats right, thanks for the history lesson. that boat was tender and fast in light air and off the breeze.

    maybe it wasn't frank's , i could be wrong that was 30 years ago and i was 14-15. it was called tiburon iirc. now i think about it, may have been the owner of the catalina dealership in MDR. steve something..

    cool. i'm sure at some point i saw it out on the course. we raced out of SYC until 88 then my dad bought frank butler's shock 34gp in MDR and we sailed out of there for a couple years.

    Post your favorite Sailing video here!

    that truly is great, laugh my ass off every time i see it.
  13. since its a time of little to no new content, maybe we can post up some stuff we enjoy. i have always liked the VOR documentaries, and the 2011 edition seemed to have the best racing and most charismatic offenders.
