    Best Foulies on the PLANET!

    The price is actually reduced, it does not sell well, I find it too long, like a coat. Useful if you are standing behind the wheel long hours, or watching kids soccer game in pouring rain. I bought the Ægir Racing, normal waist lenght. It will hopefully last me several years, so the price/year should be OK. I sail and race in chilly Scandinavian waters, and se no fun in being cold and miserable.

    Securing light wind sheets

    I think around the winch is good for direct force transfer. A hand will be a shock absorber. I see that when cycling a bike with suspension up hill on a road. Racing bikes dont have suspension..

    Waterproof Shorts

    I bought shorts in a trail cyckling shop. High waist, designed for sitting, I hate low waist trousers when sailing. waterproof / spray proof / quick drying..

    Look at air filled bags, easy to stow away...

    The watch of a yachtsman? Which one...

    Yepp, annoying. Bought it in AUS, so here at home it’s in a drawer on a little pillow.

    Yepp, got one in my drawer too. Should perhaps put a nice strap on it, new battery and start use it again.

    B&G Vulcan Reviews?

    I have a Vulcan, bought it in 2017. We do coastal cruising and the occational overnight regatta. We went for larger screen and not buttons. Thought that if B&G would put it to market it would work. And it does, we are pleased with it. Gets HOTin sunlight, but keeps on working. It’s a SAILORS thing, other ar more oriented on fish finder abilities. It has regatta mode with lay lines, current etc, and starter / timer function. It works in the wet better than me... Edit: Haven’t got the wifi to work properly, cant’t figure out how to update SW and maps. Its silicone’d into a frame, with no rear access, so cant get to the connections without cutting it free.. thinking of installing a hatch in the front of the pedestal, also for cooling / ventilation..

    Reaching sheets for Jib

    Look like this on a GP42 I sailed on. Attach to clew before top mark, so it takes the load when the sheet is eased and reaching to of set mark. Frees the winch for spinaker set.
