    Ideal Youth Sailing Progression?

    I did the same sort of progression in junior sailing, I got to big for optimist pretty quick and soon to big for laser radial, which is all they for juniors locally. Past that the 420 is the only boat used for high school and college Sailing, which is to small for most big guys to sail in. At my size I weight more then the boat itself. The only junior class I could sail in is thistles, this fleet briefly resurged but died out when people aged out. The skinnier class of kids following them wanted nothing to do with the Thistle. As someone who plans to be a lifelong sailor it is unfortunate to lose my last years of junior sailing and not being able to sail high school or college sailing. Taking the politics out would help as well.

    Tracking down Hobie 33's

    Got our boat to 19KTS boat speed then the instruments crapped out. Holy Toledo achieved some insane number in the miami to havana race, 26KTS i believe.

    the R/W/B is a S5 1.5 oz, we wanted it to cut power for the higher end. It has very narrow shoulders.

    Are Mount Gay Rum Hats Cool?

    I am very proud of my red hats, all from my first big keel boat events. The first timers on the boat get red hat priority. Although I cannot wear mine as they are not allowed in Jr sailing here, promoting alcohol or some bullshit...

    How do you define bad crew?

    The crew who treats brand new sails terribly. Stuffs them down, steps on them, doesn’t put them away properly. Crew who doesn’t put the new rudder in the bag then drops it. Then there’s the crew who refuses to help do anything when asked.
