    Sailx status?

    I was with Tacticat and SailX as CANI20, and my brother was CANNACRA. Had great times until the gamers came out.

    First Caribbean charter, looking for advice

    You will not go wrong with BVI. And if you want your best bang for the buck, check out http://thecaptainscompass.com Older boats that have some scratches, but if you can get past this, the prices are incredible...about half or less of what the big guys with shiny boats have.

    Sailing in Kingston ONT Q's

    Sailed here a couple of times...will also be at the vipers. Thermal = bang left. Thermal will be predominant unless a strong front passes through. Some current on north shore, not usually enough to make a big difference. Some compression on north shore with thermal, but flatter water as you go south. In North wind, good luck. Rolling the dice with wind coming from shore. If the course is set up in front of KYC, the Cataraqui River can help smooth fluctuations out a bit. Stuart Walker wrote some good stuff about Kingston dynamics. I am sorry to say I don't remember which book had it, though.

    Activity streams no longer working

    I set up a stream when the new board began, which worked very well until last week. Then I tried the "latest without PA" stream offered here, and it does not work. Created a new stream last night that is not working either. Is it me, or has something changed on the boards?

    Steve and Dave Clarks Unidentified Foiling Object

    Well I have zoomed in and studied those photos in a lot of detail.... Well you don't have and leach tell tails. But seriously you can really see the thought that has gone into design and they have answered questions I dare not ask. Bill4 took the mic out of me earlier for 'good luck and all the best'. Luck comes from hard work and preparation you are going to have good luck in buckets. This is an exceptional and ground breaking design, it has taken me while to see that and I am truly sorry for and upset I have caused you. Tink Sheesh...what has SA become? This is a sincere apology. Good on ya Tink.

    The Napanee boat(s) are not being built. My buddy and I bought some plans before getting into other boats. I doubt we will build, either.

    I have a crew that is looking for a ride for LYRA. 175 pounds, early 20's male. Relatively new to sailing, but very motivated and quick to grasp new positions. He has sailed with me since the spring, and I can vouch that he will be a good addition to any boat.
