    Affordable GPS Speedometer

    The Vakaros Atlas is small and had compass and GPS speed plus heel and much more.

    Chicago Boat, RV and Sail Show

    There are many things wrong with the new set up but long hours might be the biggest. For example of something that works. My wife has a wedding show on Sunday from noon to 4pm. She is exhibiting so plans to be there from 11:00 until 5pm tops. She went to a show last weekend that was similar and we are hosting a Wedding Expo in our Boat Barn from 1pm until 4pm. We are shortening by an hour this year from last.
  5. We will be there to coach and give our secrets out. The boats are easy to sail. We have fixed the forestay in the class rules to enhance the simplicity of the boats. Sails will all be even too.
  6. Call Mark at KO Sailing.
  7. Sarasota YC is where we have 7 RS21's. Launching there too. Great club and excited to be there. Let us know if you need anymore information. 6 of the 12 RS21's just arrived at Lakewood YC in Houston today too. Final 6 will be there in about 2 weeks.

    Test Sailing the RS 21

    Even Clint approves of the RS21. What's not to like.

    Will It Fly?

    JimBowie - Great to hear. That is the plan. There still might be a pro event thrown in here or there but that will be announced. Like the Charleston Race Week Pro-Am. But the goal is interclub challenges and Corinthian sailing. Making sure everyone has fun and comes out learning something and wanting to come back for more.

    Will It Fly?

    JimBowie, Thanks for starting the post. First this is the Premier Sailing League and there is no affiliation to RS Sailing other than they have chosen the RS21 as the platform to use. Yes, RS is supporting this venture where it can as it is a good idea. As for how it will shape is with PSL and their owners. They have hired Tucker Thompson to work his magic too and I think that is a great asset. There will be more news in the next couple weeks. Your suggestions of adding beer, taco-trucks and Mount Gay Rum girls is a great idea and something that should be considered. Full press release is here - http://www.premieresailingleague.com/2019/09/04/the-pay-to-play-future-of-sailing/?fbclid=IwAR2T2Ez5bqlva-aqki6-LwmtjvjhQ5SOv9WORhGRUYB8vfzaudG7NhFeSIw The more ideas thrown around the better chance for some of them to stick. Looking forward to hearing more.

    Cape 31 OD

    Do the sails have to be paneled? Looks like North so would make sense to keep costs down. Limiting instruments and learning from driving costs up that killed the C&C 30 would be good. Cost of the boat is the cheap part of sailing so keeping the running of the boat and Pro's down to a reasonable number is the important part. Hopefully they can be sailed with less than 8 people too. Looks fun to me.

    Annapolis "Performance" Sailing - No More-ish!

    We too are sad to see APS go this route. As competitors we also sold to them. Our goals are always to support sailors but will never be able to compete or try to compete with the Amazon model which I think APS did a little. Giving away shipping kills a small business. Please understand this as they are eliminating the small margin items. For us air Sail22 we still plan to attend events and keep expanding our website which will go into high gear now as we are seeing increased orders which we are ready for. If you don't see something online just send us a note and we will do everything we can to support your sailing needs. We have a busy next couple months as we will be at Melges 24 NA's, J/111 Worlds, J/24 Nationals, V15 Nationals and J/70 NA's before we are in Annapolis for the boat show. Sincerely, Ed, Becky and the Sail22 Team.

    Sail22 will be there supporting anyone that needs help. We will be running the 8 RS21's and Chartering our J/70. Look for us at James Island YC starting this weekend and Patriots Point after that. Let us know if you want to test out the RS21. Later, Ed

    RS 21 or Not?

    All good JimBowie. You are just getting the info out and making sure we are doing our job and updating the information. Keep it up. We work hard so you can sail. RS is a great company that really just wants to make sailing easier and more fun. Sail22 is the same way but we add to the upgrades and concierge side. It is making a great combo and with Racegeek supporting with their d10 and Spinlock with their Deckvests we have a great program going.
