  1. At least we know how the story ends...
  2. Good! I've noticed a lot of you boomers are having trouble staying put...for example, my own parents .
  3. Does it need to have a mast or rutters?

    I'm pretty sure the "open ocean" is just Pamlico Sound

    I read that the average intake on youtube videos per thousand views is about $7.32. So at the 14k views that he's got on the most recent Aberlemarle crossing video, he's at about $103. He's a far cry from getting cash-flow positive.

    Any S2 owners out there?!

    Being in Chicago I had considered going up to S2-fest with my 7.9, but with Nationals following shortly after, i'm going to pass.

    opinions on mainsail trim

    I don't see a cunningham even rigged. Putting some one will probably sort out the top half of the sail, but you will likely end up with a large "hinge" or crease from the clew to about 1/3 way up the luff. I agree with the others, the sail is shit and needs to be replaced. No magic will make it look perfect.
  10. From the LP Facebook Page: "We have exciting news to share! Say hello to the LaserPerformance team at the RYA Dinghy Show on February 29-March 1 to learn more about Laser League ⛵️ bit.ly/TheLaserLeague" Is this the answer? Create a new class association?

    Best mainsheet ratchet min 50mm

    I never really used the other one. I like this one because it only engages as I near "block to block"

    I was merely transitioning the discussion from conjecture and innuendo to fact (not my opinion). I maintain that you have no idea what you are talking about. You have demonstrated that on several fronts. How would you feel if someone brought forward a bunch of disparaging comments and opinions about the choices you've made with your contributions to the sport?

    “Among the most prestigious awards in sailing.”

    I would argue it's this one... https://www.ussailing.org/competition/awards-trophies/the-arthur-b-hanson-rescue-medal/
