    As always, so well filmed. Interesting to see the junk but I must say I absolutely love the films when you have the shots of the one design classes and the local sailboats just happily tacking along. Makes everything feel right in the world, you know.

    Two very different boats on the Deben

    Would be lovely if he could have a good time with a little more downhaul but it is a very cool little boat

    Well it is the same general area, may as well take a look while I'm near Victoria. Definitely a cool option!

    Solo & Looking for an R2AK Boat!

    Nice boat at a good price but that kind of thing would drain the budget in no time at all. Definitely need something a little more manageable (and aren't those things a handful downwind too? Little sketchy solo). God the space would be glorious though. Maybe if was intending to just cruise the BC coast and liveaboard, but I want to go further afield, so I need something very economical to keep shipshape

    I do, yeah. It's changed what I'm looking for a little honestly, I'm okay with having an inboard for extended cruising. Hoping to find something sturdy and very seaworthy to take care of me while I bounce around the PNW, and maybe Alaska if that opens up. I might not even be in BC for 2022 depending on how it all works out so it doesn't seem logical to buy something unliveable just in case I get the chance to R2AK.

    Tempting, those things are palatial. Even 19k is stretching my budget though. Notice is already in, there's no turning back now!

    Any thoughts on this boat? 63' pearson triton, $19k CAD or about 15K USD The "updated" interior looks great for in port but the lack of good sea berths is a little worying for the offshore passages I hope to make eventually. Furling headsail that I'd probably replace with hanked ones eventually, not sure what else to think.{"qid"%3A"6925844563556593291"%2C"mf_story_key"%3A"4288725171201541"%2C"commerce_rank_obj"%3A"{\"target_id\"%3A4288725171201541%2C\"target_type\"%3A0%2C\"primary_position\"%3A-1%2C\"ranking_signature\"%3A0%2C\"commerce_channel\"%3A503%2C\"value\"%3A0%2C\"upsell_type\"%3Anull}"}

    It's the pilot house addition? That is especially mockworthy, and all the little details that are just odd... not sure WHAT to think...{"qid"%3A"6921563070428150279"%2C"mf_story_key"%3A"2806541032783651"%2C"commerce_rank_obj"%3A"{\"target_id\"%3A2806541032783651%2C\"target_type\"%3A0%2C\"primary_position\"%3A-1%2C\"ranking_signature\"%3A0%2C\"commerce_channel\"%3A503%2C\"value\"%3A0%2C\"upsell_type\"%3Anull}"}

    I love this idea, and out of the way places is exactly what I'd love to see. Very much hoping I can the Covid vaccine before I head up anywhere, not that sailing isn't excellent quarantine, but just to put local minds at ease.

    Race 2 Alaska Put on Ice another 12 Months!

    I wonder if they'll continue to run it as a second race if the turnout is good?

    I mean, makes the decision fairly easy for this Canadian boy: "Straight up, though, it’s not an option if you don’t live in the U.S." I think I still want to get to Alaska this summer. Might end up being just Prince Rupert at this rate. What a bummer :/
