    Front Page, "Get your Kicks."

    + 2. I now live in So Cal, but used to live in NZ (a very long time ago) so I get the vibe!

    Harken Windward Sheeting Main Car

    This set up was perfect for my Olson 30, purchased a new one and it never let me down, although we did McLube the crap out of all our running gear. Especially loved the situation after a tack in light airs. Sailing with the traveller just above centerline, following the tack the car was now slightly down, allowing the sail to be powered up as we gained speed. Sailed to third in Nationals with it. Some people never liked them, but once I got used to it, it was perfect.

    HMS Ajax, not Norwegian.

    ROOM !!!

    The town of Ajax, in Ontario, Canada, was named after the cruiser following the Battle of the River Plate. The town also has streets named after every member of the ship's company, such as Hobson Avenue, and Harwood Avenue, which is the town's main north-south street. Many street signs in the town bear the silhouette of the ship. The silhouette signifies the street being named after part of the ship's company, and the ship's anchor rests in front of the local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. Ajax's bell is on a monument in Montevideo, just outside the port customs house, and was donated by Admiral Sir Henry Harwood and Sir Eugen Millington-Drake in 1949.

    Robin Davie Reported Overdue

    A solo sailor who sparked a search when he was not heard from for six days has sent a radio message to say he is safe, well, and on his way to Cornwall. Robin Davie, 67, left port in France on his yacht "C'est la Vie" on Saturday for the 300-mile journey to Falmouth. His brother reported him as overdue on Wednesday morning when there had been no contact. But on Friday the coastguard said Mr Davie radioed to say he was 25 miles south-west of the Isles of Scilly.

    North 3Di vs Quantum Fusion M 9000

    If you didn't like the North Design, then change your loft. You need a guy/gal who can design to what you need! Design has not a lot to do with the cloth.
