    Yes, but his sailing is amazing. Wow!
  2. With the Olympics in France in 2024, I could envision something like the Figaro 3 becoming an Olympic boat. To accommodate the extra crew required by the GPOD, seems like sailors would need to be allowed to compete for metals in multiple events.

    Ya'll are overanalyzing this. Just sail what you got. Be fast, first to the shift, and be safe. Wish ya'll the best.

    Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Maybe so, but someone over there said he was well hung, or so I thought.

    Sounds like a challenge to me. I'm betting on Snap and will even provide the venue.

    J70 Trailer retro kit for 'up' trailering?

    A bottom cover with strategically placed screening on the trailer may be way easier. Look at what the melges (20/24) fleet does for an example.

    I hope it does, but I preferred the Mon-Fri racing. For us, it is an 8 hour road trip. Tell the boss you are taking that week off. Travel Saturday, launch, setup camp and party. Meet at the boat Sunday to cleanup, tune, whatever, and take the boat to Penn Cove for mussels and beer at Toby's for lunch. Practice that afternoon in Penn Cove when the breeze fills in, then head back in time for the opening party. Then a week of meet at the boat at 10am, race, party. Most of the time we can pull the boat Friday, hit the party and be on the road Saturday morning (or later if we pull Saturday morning). Home Saturday evening, recoup Sunday, work Monday. IMHO, it was perfect, but profits and participation suggest otherwise. Refreshing too, because not once have I ever thought about work while there. Side note: The music and beer at the parties of late have been good too. Guess we will just have to adapt, because I agree it is the best the PNW has to offer. Cheers ~ Varan

    We need the hendos and tigers back to reform the super 30 fleet.
