    a sad sight, wonder what happened? http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2014/01/17/lone-sailboat-still-docked-in-frozen-belmont-harbor/

    Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    I thought about that too, I don't think RLG even had a radio on that boat, all navigation was DR and celestial. However, his 24 foot boat (Lapworth 24) weighs 33% more than a SJ24 and has a full keel and a protected rudder ... much better for this sort of thing. That said, I admire this guy's guts and wish him luck.

    Completely agree, I think they need to better define their terms or 'fess up. I just think it'd be a new level of dumb to blatantly violate the rules while in sight of the whole fleet ... and then go brag about it in the class magazine.

    Clubber, Can you define what you see as the class rule violation? If the code zero has additional hardware associated with it - like a furler - then I agree with you. But if all they are doing is running a flatter asym chute that is smaller than 89m2 then that would appear to be legal by the class rules as long as it measures by the rule, has luff, leech, and foot cords, and they don't exceed the max number of chutes allowed on board for the race (two). RH has a new 77m2 listed in sail inventory on j105.org, so I am assuming this is the "code zero" they are referring to? I suppose it comes down to the interpretation of the term "code zero".

    For every action, there is a reaction. And a pikey reaction ... is quite a fucking thing.
