    Vendee Globe 2020

    She said she got knocked down a few times in winds of 25-40 so figured reduced sail for a while was way to go. No breakages reported.

    Could be some serious damage and heading to Cape Town to try repairs. Being french we'll need to wait for local weekly newpaper for press release.

    But hey that's some nice material to show the sponsors for sure. Be interesting to see how Clarisse scores on the media front when all is done. Maybe she will be the new face of BOSS.

    Does epoxy lose any weight as it cures ? Just wondering, i mean it certainly kicks off some heat.

    I quite agree, was right with you up until that last word zinger you threw out. That's not how you do it.

    Old Cordage

    Dock lines meant to be stretchy, not a good home for old sheets and halyards. Same goes for recycling into dog leashes. Oops just saw that about fibreglass....

    So, I bought a boat

    So how do you deal with the triatic stay when doing this easy mast lowering ??

    WTF did they do to this J/125!?

    Enjoy your new boat sir and do with it what you wish. Too many folks like telling others what to do with their property.

    Expensive El Toro

    This just listed on "Bring a Trailer", $2500+ seems kinda steep for an old El Toro. Are they collectible now ??
  15. Why did the PHRF board decide they should contact the race organizers ?
