    Dear Dr. Rules

    I like this public shaming thing, much more fun than the protest room.

    From the SI’s. They even had it highlighted.

    Any plans to do more of the podcasts? I really enjoyed them.

    Proa w/ roller furling

    Nah, the new rigging took lots of weight off of the rig, and the windward bench has been removed. I assume you’re looking at the water line? The anti fouling is white instead of black now. Might be hard to see.

    Guy holding the camera is #300+... and my fat ass, in pretty light breeze.

    Foot is about 17 feet.

    Right, it’s still not as fast as a tradition tack, but significantly faster than what it was before. Much easier short handed, too.

    Meh, the guy who built it says tacks and gybes, guy who owns it says tacks and gybes. Whatever suits your fancy I suppose.

    This is mostly for the proa geeks. I’ve been helping out with the 2oceans1rock campaign. We’ve finished installing roller furling head sails, and made a quick video to show how they work. We’re using Colligo’s ELHF Furling system. We’re working on an inner staysail system next. Check it out.

    Sold everything to sail the world...boat sunk on day 2

    I'm not sure about your attitude; can you tell me more about why you don't want to work anymore?

    VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Vestas a touch lower and a touch faster. Really hope they can stay in front of Dong, catching Skally would be nice, too.

    Yep, Dong averaging higher. Slowly chopping that lead down.

    VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Jesus, Dong 3.5 faster and 11 degrees lower. Is Vestas missing a sail?
