    Savannah/Charleston/Pensacola Sailing Advice

    Pensacola is the syphilis capital of America. Add my ex living in Gulf Breeze and FUCK THAT, even if the sailing and Gulf is nice.

    Annapolis Boat Shows Cancelled

    Bars, docks, tents, people traveling from all over. No way to do it currently. Add in the tools that go to the power boat shows and it’s even worse. Just because people are tired of doing the right things, doesn’t mean people should give them the opportunity to do the wrong thing openly.

    What is the closest 40’er to a TP52?

    It is over a knot slower than the two above. 36.8° at 5 kts vmg in 16kts for the Soto.

    What is the closest 40’er to a TP52?

    I looked at the Soto rating while looking at the Ker40 above. It was knocked out of relevance just for ratings to ratings comparison.

    What is the closest 40’er to a TP52?

    Ker 40 points better, but is slower than the GP42 according to the ORC certs. I would imagine the Carkeek Mark IV Ran would be pretty well up there. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any certificates for the Carkeeks.

    What’s next for J?

    Loki, just did the Mac stuff.
  9. Was the grid structure in that modified/custom 105 changed? Or was it originally just the normal 105 hull? What was beefed up when you added the custom carbon mast and deep keel?

    How much of it has to do with they haven't sailed the boat in 5 months?

    C&C 30 and Farr 280 - What happened

    Here is the problem. Sailed the CC30 when it first dropped, bow keep dipping and it wanted to trip and the owner felt it right away and said no thanks. Compare the 30 to everything out there before, Henderson 30, Melges 30/32, FT10, etc, and it is overpriced, and rates slower than the same boats that came before, Sure OD cool, but why bother spending the dollars when dollars/fun just wasn't there. That and you had to take the boat everywhere to do OD. 280 had similar problems. Cool new boat, however, you could just buy a Farr 30 and still have more fun for cheaper. That being said, maybe it is a good thing. That so many boats from before their time are still awesome. However, as prices keep going up, and people keep having less dollars to spend, we will continue to see the same trends. Just my thoughts, I am often quite wrong in life.

    FP - Red Bull

    Who else would love to see Red Bull sponsor one of these new IMOCA boats literally flying. It seems like a perfect sponsorship to me. Anyone else?
  13. Welp, the rumor is finally out. 30% off everything.

    THE IMOCA thread, single/double handed & TOR

    Sleep with a five point harness and a hans device in a race seat.
  15. Button yes, but still infuriating that this is sailing race and the wind isn't on by default.
  16. Arkea Paprec has broken the starboard foil at the hull. Returning to port.

    Arkea Paprec has broken the starboard foil and is returning to port from the race.
  18. Is there a full list of what boat is what? What generation? What the boat was previously? Etc.

    THE SPORTBOAT CAN BE SUSTAINABLE

    Well to be fair, this design already got built as RAN. It looks like this company just used their drawings.

    Annapolis Performance Sailing - OFFICIALLY DEAD

    Part of it yes, some of it was still not rented last time I walked past.

    Annapolis Performance Sailing - OFFICIALLY DEAD

    Fawcetts left because it was rumored to be 22K per month in rent. Obviously Helly Hansen covers that cost on main street with tourists, but a sailing store, no way. Then again, the building which was replaced downtown where Fawcetts was, has sat empty for how many years now?

    West Marine. Coincidentally this was also the first winter APS didn't have a rigging sale. Is it a connection?
