    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.

    Parental Sailing Barrier

    That would be a solid plan, if I didn’t have a Hobie 33. I’m thinking the equivalent is splashing him with cold water and ripping $100 bills in half. Might not leave a good impression.

    Parental Sailing Barrier

    Sailing Anarchy, I come to you for help. I am looking for advise and photos to help explain sailing to my father. He has no background of boats period. Do I reaffirm the stereotypes? Do I bout about yacht club politics? Do I explain sea weed slows me down? Do I explain why I shouldn’t have lost that protest? Help!
