    2020 Texas Centerboard Circuit

    I'm not the one calling the shots and evidently the one who is, isn't paying attention here. I personally don't like Seabrook but I'd go if it were on the schedule. I do, however, love AYC and Canyon. Maybe we can get CYC to host the TCC a few times over the summer.

    I personally like to race my little boat more than 5 times in a year. AYC has several regattas that suit our needs that could be added.

    Also, for those who read this thread, how about a head count? Post a comment here if you plan to sail any of the events that being planning. I think we can count on the following but that is just an assumption: Jenny, Fishingmicky, Two Grey, Zerbuchen. Ortega, Lindy, Phil, Big D?, .....

    When putting together the schedule, know that Lake Conroe is down more than 3' and falling. There are failing bulkheads at the club which will not be fixed in time for Spring Fling. Based on that and the fact that the launching beach is a mud-hole, the spring regatta at CYC has been canceled for this year. For those who are in charge of the schedule this year, time to get a move on. Let's not wait until the last minute.

    No we know what that "yellow thing" is... And the Harken lift would work perfect in your garage.

    You paid $20.00 USD to Texas Centerboard Circuit Me too

    That has been confined to one sailor in Hawaii who often sails in 25-30 knots. You will never find me in conditions like that unless I'm on the Jeanneau. Done with proving I'm not 25 anymore. Most boats out there have never had an issue with breaking the top section. The sail track pulls from the mast but that's an easy fix.

    You make a good point.

    Last I checked, the "good deal" part hasn't evolved in the EVO world yet. Decent Megabyte can be had for $3500. Megabyte vs EVO on the race course? No contest. But the MB is a pretty good DPN boat for TCC.

    Theo and Claire, the Megabyte is a perfect boat for you guys and your family. Take turns sailing at the regattas and sail with the girls on the weekends. There are good deals to be had too.

    And then there were two. Watch out, soon we'll have as many as the canoes...

    Awesome, I like your plan. Let me know if I can help promote. CYC will have their Spring Fling and as usual, the TCC is the cornerstone of that event but I am no longer involved there. I can send you contact info for them. A couple of people I know are calling it a day with their one-design travels and are planning on some DPN fun. I know I'm looking forward to it.

    The Megabyte thread

    I traded for 2017 MB #374 built by Zim. I've had a newer Laser, a new RS Aero and a new Sunfish, all for racing. The MB could use better attention to detail (the centerboard and rudder will NOT go into the trunk or housing without removing the carpet) but overall, it's a very comfortable boat to sail. The only boat more stable is the Sunfish. I have the Mk2 rig with the full batten sail and it works as designed but the mast is a bit too flexy at the top for my liking. I haven't spent much time it it yet and that opinion is subject to change. But I can say that it's a lot more fun to sail than a Laser or an Aero for a bigger guy like me. I don't sail in anything over about 18 so I don't see myself breaking any masts.

    That's cool, Derek. I'm wondering if there's been any talk about a schedule so we can all start planning. Looks like there's going to be another Megabyte coming to TCC besides mine. The sooner we can all start making plans, the more boats we'll get at each event. Looking forward to seeing you all again.
