  1. We sail out of north cape yacht club on lake erie with one other as joe lark said earlier. There's also another at the marina that dosen't race any more (still has the morc wave on the main so she pry hasn't raced in some time). My dads boat odyssey, Paul Hickman's splash dance, and the third boat Scat are all in LaSalle mi. Would love to see the class start to do more one design racing

    A few years back we had a class at the bayview onedesign regatta and it was a blast!

  2. I teach sailing at the arundel yacht club in kennebunkport, there can be some weird rollers at the mouth of the river at the wrong tide. Dimillos is walking distance from all the shops and everything and pretty easy to dock at

    There is some real current when the tides moving but not unmanageable.

  3. I bought a custom one off  called a "nelson 28" a few years ago on Ebay, then what was left of a g&s 27 called fearless for parts and are currently attempting to Frankenstein the two boats together to be an offshore shorthanded platform. If anyone have any thought or opinions on layout that would be greatly appreciated!!

    The boat is 28 feet long, weighs 4500# and appears to be glassed over cedar strip planking

  4. The problem i have with the dn class is its not a very good "one design", my 1976 heavy dn with a wood rig and boom built to the original plans with all the vintage hard where cant come close to competing with the modern boats, i personally think they should break the dns into two classes a original one design fleet and a modern development class with carbon rigs and all the other expensive stuff. id think that'd draw a lot more new people into the sport who don't want to drop thousands into a boat. But then again this is probably the reason i bought a renegade.
