    Looks like Comcast in Seattle has it on channel 626 at 10p-12a, 12/16. The title is Sailing: America’s Cup World Series. Not sure if it’s the X-Mas race, but the right time frame.

    Sticking Velcro to Gelcoat

    Sail-rite flex-a-rail. Glue on with silicone as it doesn’t take a load. https://www.sailrite.com/search?keywords=Flex rail

    Grand Prix Mast Partners

    We used something like this found on Amazon. Proxicast Pro-Grade Extra Strong 30mil Weatherproof Self-Fusing Silicone Rubber Sealing Tape. We pumped up the mast jack to max height applied the tape the lowered mast all the way to allow a bellows to be created. After 24 hours applied black sail repair tape to front and sides to be cut resistant. Best boot we’ve ever made. 100% waterproof and flexible in all conditions.

    Where to move?

    Decent afternoon/evening thermal, 8-15kts fairly common.

    Where to move?

    Check out Seattle/Puget Sound. Housing not cheap, but doable outside main cities. Year round racing. Best sailing Oct-June. Summer can sail 5 days a week. Seattle sailing club reasonable for boat rental. Yes it rains, put on a jacket and deal.

    Six one, half dozen the other. Good crew no issue.

    From what I know, TP’s run single slot foil for weight savings. So bare headed jib change is only option when it pipes up. Plus only one jib halyard. Gotta keep spins halyards open for gate options.

    Understood, thanks. How about the performance differences? Are hanks more efficient than foil?
