    Are we(racing sailors) a culture of cheaters?

    Ask the Wild Oats XI guys...

    I just spoke to Stan Honey and he’d like to respectfully disagree with you.
  3. Don’t mess with tradition....
  4. Does Peter Conde’s wife still work there? The nepotism within the organisation has always been a waste of the YA levy.

    New boat construction - JPK 38 FC

    When you're making your new set, try replacing the bottom 3 feet or so of the lazyjacks with 1 inch webbing. When your main is reefed down and the sail stack is putting pressure on the lazyjack you'll find that the webbing hurts the main less than the bare dyneema will. Pretty much every race boat I've ever sailed on uses this option.

    is the S2H too short for a modern maxi ?

    Jeez, he's looking well conditioned! It must be all those Grand Banks launch parties...

    Sydney to Hobart 2017

    It's not uncommon. IIRC back in the day (2005) Getaway Sailing used to charge $6k or $7k for the Sydney 38 "experience" and $12k or $15k for the Volvo 60. Both in AUD, so if you were earning greenbacks the cost wasn't too bad for a walk on/walk off Hobart ride with no responsibility. It beat the hell outta spending 6 months training with 18 crew for 12 spots who started eyeballing each other mid-November and loudly accusing each other of humping the owner's daughter.

    Paihia Bomb

    I used them a lot back when I lived in Australia in the late 90's. I'd call the pharmacy in NZ and they'd post them out to me. They're pretty good, but when it's really hammering out there they work about as good as anything else does.... They're a two tablet treatment. A sedative, and an upper. But if you take them the wrong way round it turns you into rocket man. And I'm gonna be hiiiiiiiii-iiiiigghhhh as a kite by then. I never got that wrong again.
