    VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    It appears in the rescue vids and stills that a life raft was deployed - assuming it was Vistas raft, good move by them; is there anything in the racing rules that says they have to retire if raft is deployed?

    VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    If there is room on the list, I'm in again this edition. Boat is MetalMan. Using just heavy sails and code 0 - all I could afford (for 'free'). I notice some loss of speed against boats in similar wind and angles - how much does foils and polish add in these conditions? I'm guessing at least 1 kt.

    Whatever happened to the Classe 950?

    Any 950's on the Great Lakes? Seams like it would be fun toy for fast racing yet still usable as a weekender - especially with retracting keel to get in and out of the shallow bits. Retracting keels are allowed from my brief read of class rules, right?
