    North realized how much of a farce their 'shark skin' sails were and decided to market these 'snake skin' sails as a joke. What they didn't expect was the orders coming in from select J105 and PHRF sailors in the US.

    Quick RRS Appendix E/Rule 18 question. Two RC Lasers on opposite gibes approaching the bottom mark. One port inside (me), one starboard just outside. Heavy overlap, tough to judge since the course was lateral to the dock. Wind was at my back. My understanding is that the port boat is still entitled to room at the mark, just cannot take starboard away from the mark. Am I correct? I'm not sure. So when does 18 turn on and off vs 10 in RC sailing? Single lee mark. Not a gate. We ended up getting hooked up and both DNF. No arguments or hard feelings about it. Just curious as I'm still a newb to RC racing.

    "Only winners can"?? uggh. Some winner. FFS. Why do you even post here? I'd love to see how well you're received on yuppie cyclist forums. The Chads in tights must love your wannabe goomba ass. Your need to littler threads like this with your idiotic wop bullshit only shows personal and obvious intellectual weakness. I respect your performance, but this shit is getting tired dude. Think of something more funny, intuitive, or meaningful to say.. or at least read a book or ten and learn how to spell for fucks sake. Fucking hack.

    That's awwesome. Especially since no one has a sense of humor anymore. Demolition Regattas should be a thing.

    Worst place for a sailor in the USA

    Round Valley Reservoir. Clinton, NJ. Sail the same tack around in circles. If there's breeze.

    Slack/ebb beginning when you approach the Hellgate bridge or so. Max ebb is a bit of a sleigh ride at times.

    It's not too thin? I'm not worried about the load. Just don't want to have to tie on the settings. Maybe I'm putting too much thought into this? I have some black robeline whip twine that would look pretty sexy.

    I'm replacing the standing rig and sheets on a friend's older Nirvana.. what types of lines has anyone upgraded to on a boat like this? It seems to be all whipping twine really. Just don't want to use anything waxed so the rig holds setting. 2 shrouds/forestay and backstay. People have used 0.6mm spectra. Thoughts? It's a cute boat. I'll post a pic later.

    3DI (Raw) and roller furler storage longevity

    If you're singlehanding a J80, why are you using a 3Di raw? Buy a sail that can better tolerate the abuse and save the 3di rolled and dry for when you're playing for keeps.

    Imagine if you will.. a divorce proceeding where the wife who doesn't sail manages to take the house and the boat, and the husband has a terrific idea to 'consolidate'. How much are either worth now, dear??
