    Gill Salopettes Sizing

    99% no, however, the information you provided is not enough to even figure that out. How tall are you? What is your body like? It matters! That being said, here is what I would do. Step 1. Look at the Gill website for Women's sizes. Size 12 is 32-33 inch waist. Step 2. Look at the Gill website for Men's sizes. M is 31-33 inches. Step 3. Throw all that out the window. So as you say, If you are a medium to large typically, in Gill you are wearing Large - XL as it is cut small (European) . This means you need a true 33 inch waist, not an American 33. In some cases, even women that are 16-18 need to go to Men's sizes. It is also cut differently for women. For comparison, I wear L-XL shirts, in most Gill XXL. In some Gill layering, XXXL would be needed. For lady comparison, people that wear a size 8 American, usually go up to a size 12. Even with all that, the best policy is to always try it on. If it is a good deal, and they have easy returns, then that is what you would want to do at a minimum. Although, I still think you would not fit.

    Was it coming out of a maneuver?

    anybody board the First 53 at the Annapolis Show?

    From the pictures, there are pop ups from the deck to stand on while healed.
  6. Yesterday, the website of APS changed, with a new section that said "Welcome to the new APS." Among it, was further information about the "New" APS and fact they were no longer going to be selling any line, or hardware. With the removal of line and hardware, the rigging shop will also cease to exist. With it, a wealth of customers information for custom orders which used to be able to be replicated if you needed a replacement, will vanish like fart in the wind. You may ask what will be added instead of actual "performance" oriented materials of hardware and line.....Clothing. That is right folks, a "performance" sailing company is now a full fledged clothing store, with maybe some accessories yet to be fully determined. A once great store, where you could run in and get replacement parts while rigging your boat at SSA, EYC, and the likes fast and efficiently, will now be, hey come get your Helly jacket instead. From the posts on Facebook showing their disapproval of the change, and a line on the website saying "You spoke and we listened!" , clearly they did not. In the mean time, you can get line and hardware 25% off. Stock up, until you have to sell out to West Marine down the street. Perhaps in addition, a name change as performance, isn't indicated by the clothing one wears. I might suggest Annapolis Panoply Sales, as at least this way, they can still use the same website. Word of the day, Panoply 1. a wide-ranging and impressive array or display:the dazzling panoply of the maharaja's procession; the panoply of European history. 2. a complete suit of armor. 3. a protective covering. 4. full ceremonial attire or paraphernalia; special dress and equipment.

    Fuck me, Terry said, “it took 90 mins during the first sail to be foiling.” Talk about getting after it, that’s awesome.

    NYYC Invitational IC37

    Class rules state reef flags. So if RC determines to fly the flags, all boats reef. All things considered, it’s to make racing as uniform as possible.

    NASS Race to Oxford MD 9/7/19

    The amount of chatter on the radio the last two weekends is disappointing to say at the least. Personally, I find those people constantly on the radio questioning rc to be complete assholes. Badgering people that are volunteers, so that we may do something we enjoy is uncalled for. I hope one day, rc asks what sail number they are and throw them out of the regatta. We don’t always like rc decisions, but show them respect, they don’t have to be there. If you think you can do better volunteer. Otherwise shut up. Could they have shortened the course, yes. Should they, yes. However, it also boggles my mind why the constant need to complain by those on the radio. It’s a distance race, you knew what you signed up for as it was always going to be an all day affair. The party in Oxford is always fun, and I was looking forward to it all day while enjoying my time with friends. We’re privileged to be able to do what we do.

    There is a video on the Facebook account of the FB35 Weapon of Choice. Not sure how to load it here, but it looks wicked.

    Donnybrook is back (on the market)

    Last time I heard anyone talk about the boat, it needed a whole lot of work to the keel, structure and the sort. I have also heard stories from the C600 where the crew were just hoping the keel would hold for the race. So it really isn't surprising the price is so low, if the work still needs to be done. Anyone have any other details?

    WTF did they do to this J/125!?

    Does it matter what they did? I say that considering, the two in the classifieds for over $300k. If you bought this one at the listing price, stripped it of the bullshit, you still get the boat at a song if it's in decent shape otherwise.

    Speaking of things they need to fix, they could have at least painted the bow pulpit black too.

    PHRF rating class range. who decides

    One would think, those in charge of the race would notice these things.

    PHRF rating class range. who decides

    It seems to be more on the Club these days with them trying to create racing classes which are even numbers, rather than following a rating rule precisely. You can see races where one boat which normally fell into A1 residing in A2. For instance, the Columbia 32 rates 66 which A1 was always up to 69, for the EYC Boomerang, it was the scratch boat in A2. Although, there is also another anomaly in the Boomerang Race. The Seascape 27 which rated 90 wound up in A1. Not sure how that happened, but nonetheless, still holds water as an example. Another example, AYC WNR, has a boat which rates 108 in phrf 2 (although not normal A0-A2 nomenclature). In accordance with PHRF Ches Bay, A2 should be 72-108. If AYC was following the PHRF guidelines, then the 108 would be in PHRF 1 with the boats that rate 72. For Screwpile A1 was -33 - 39, A2 45-69, A3 75-90. Then, there is the silly decision of classes like the 105 which rates 87, always winding up doing the short courses of the event such as EYC Boomerang, when there are slower boats doing the long course. So ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    suck my balls

    I still cant believe the fuss people have over language. Who cares. Everyone has a different vocabulary. I could literally blast you using "proper" language and words above most peoples common lexicon, but that would be fine because it wasn't curse words. That is insane. It is the same with the people who are grammar police. Question 1, did you understand what the person said, even if it wasn't grammatically correct? Yes, than who cares. There are far more important things to actually give a damn about, and these two are not them.

    Certainly may be. Would help docking instead of the coffin drivers seat. However, surely not ideal if shit hits the fan in the southern ocean completely exposed.

    No tiller? What’s his back up if auto pilot completely shits the bed? Don’t go near that thing at the start! Press of the button will never equal tiller speed in a crash tack etc.

    So boats rigged for the most part, where are the foils?

    46th Annual SMCM Governor's Cup

    Ajax, I certainly wasn't calling you out directly and apologize if it came across that way. Just merely venting as others always say the race sucks. We as a collective, need to do more was more what I was going for.

    Is it me, or are the terminals for the deck spreaders right in line with wetted surface drag if the boats not on foils?
