    Vendee Globe 2020

    With about a year to start, and HB, Charal, and the other weapons emerging, i can't wait to see what this race has in store. I'm really excited for this race and all the lead-up races like TJV.

    Prada Cup

    i thought it was great sportsmanship from ALL teams and the local authorities to aid them after they capsized, well done by everybody and very cool.

    AC on NBCSN

    agreed, once there was 20-30 seconds in the leads.. it seems over. maybe they will make some adjustments if that is even a consideration.

    Santa Cruz 70 - Fleet Roll Call

    right, i was just pointing out that smaller more comfy boats (at the time in the 90's) were starting to keep up with them. i always loved them growing up and getting a ride on a sled was awesome, even for a daysail.

    Santa Cruz 70 - Fleet Roll Call

    honestly they started to get pushed around a bit on the mexico races when there were varying conditions (less downwind work) in the 90's by the 50 foot IMS pigs. we did a cabo race on a very heavy Andrews 56 and didnt come far from on elapsed time with Victoria who was first to finish, with much more in terms of creature comforts. design progress happens as it always does. we actually beat Victoria on elapsed time in the N2E, they started 20 min ahead and iirc we finished 12 min behind. that being said horses for courses right? in these days and times, i think i'd buy a J/125 and go play with a much cheaper slip rental, much cheaper operating cost, and much cheaper sail wardrobe. they are both pretty spartan so that would be my choice.
