    Weber Spirit E-210 grill, yea or nah?

    Nay, I got a Spirit as a wedding gift 6 years ago and it's always been covered and the legs are starting to rust out. It's a design flaw as condensation builds up and then run down the legs and then "sit" on the plastic base which supports the grill. I'm about ready to have an "old lady moment" with Weber. If you do get one, get one that doesn't have the plastic base.

    BLock Island Race- How to kill it..

    Also for what it's worth, being a Bermuda year registering for those classes needed to happen in 2017. I tried to register in early February and the Newport class was booked full.

    BLock Island Race- How to kill it..

    I did it last year on a multi hull with no lifelines so I was clipped in 100% of the time, Even when conditions were light It would have been embarrassing to fall in and the boat had to come around to pick me back up and loose some time.

    BLock Island Race- How to kill it..

    The 2019 Vineyard race will require everyone to take the Safety At Sea online course. Just curious but did this race require the "Hands On" training?

    The Stamford Yacht Club requires it for the Vineyard Race as well. In addition they also "recommend" that all crew take the online course as it will be mandatory for 2019. Talk about not making the event welcoming to the causal distance racer.

    Team NYYC

    Will this be based out of Bristol RI? I saw a sign at the old Hall building, now Zim Sailing recently
  7. That boat is now a skeleton at Melville, last I saw it it was behind the Hunt building stripped down.

    Best Tablet based race app for tactician

    Does Sailracer still have their starting line app? I seam to remember it functioned stand alone as well as import NMEA data wireless for higher accuracy.
  10. The NER WR2 would probably be the only line recommended for this application: https://www.neropes.com/products/grand-prix-racing/products/detail/Product/wr2-ultra/
  11. That would be a question for FF, I have coiled 8T furler torsion cables into a coil the size of a hula hoop before. That being said, I believe 5 years is the service life of the cable. It will be longer if the core is SK99 instead though.
  12. Why not just have a purpose build Armare/Future Fibers built stay?

    VOR Leg 8 ItajaĆ­ to Newport

    I'm so pissed at myself. I set an alarm to wake me up at 5 so I could go down to the fort, instead I set it to 5 pm and woke up just as they were finishing. FML
  14. I'm not saying anything about Colligo specifically. You can deduce that with the published loads yourself and perhaps reach out to various cordage manufactures whom have done the tests, such a NER, Hampidjan and others.

    VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    That is a very common problem that has been there for as long as I can remember even going back to when they had the old format.
