    They provide a good starting point for teams to work out their own polars

    No need to. Kyle had a great season and absolutely deserves some recognition for his teams accomplishment. He should absolutely be made an all-american if that is the standard for dinghy sailors.

    I think that unfortunately an offshore team is not reality for most schools. My college was lucky to have and offshore team with outside funding (as a result the dinghy team received little attention), but the cost of running a competitive offshore program is insane compared to most college dinghy teams (not talking about the Harvards or Georgetowns). It would be great to have collegiate offshore rankings, but they should be kept separate from dinghy ranking so the smaller schools and club teams don't get screwed over. I don't know how it works in Europe, but I have heard of students from Southhampton putting up an enormous amount of personal money for college keelboat racing.

    Don't store a 3Di raw on a furler in the sun for extended periods.....

    I have to agree here. If square tops were decreasing speed, we wouldn't use them. They are significantly more efficient. I am not super familiar with ORC. Do they take the distribution of sail area into account?

    If you're considering an alternative to 3Di, I have been impressed with the newest Doyle Stratis sails, not just material but design as well.

    Is there anyway to account for the better shape of a square top?

    3Di is MILES ahead of Fusion. Like 1000000 times better

    Just love seeing this guy seemingly doing nothing to promote keelboat sailing to college age sailors, allowing the sport to dwindle around him, yet he has the balls to crap on someone who's actually doing something right. When I was in school, I competed at this event several times, even won. It is an incredible, well intentioned event, that does everything possible to turn college students onto the idea of racing bigger boats after school, but the only way to make that work is with owners wanting and willing to sail with the next generation. I think we've shown who the true arse is in this scenerio. If the guy really is a dick, then maybe you could use an instance of him being a dick to prove so, not his effort to expand the sport.

    I'm sorry, but no matter how big a dick this guy might be, are you really using his good deed to shit all over him?
