    Alerion Express 28 Tuning Guide

    Tuning guides can be different from one sailmaker to another. Call your sail loft and see if they have any advice based on your current sails. The rig in that boat is almost identical to a j27 rig, so using a j27 guide may get you started.

    Old Sailing gear photo's

    Found this in a box in my dads garage a few months ago. It’s terrible and useless, maybe as a hand held compass its ok but the wind speed doesn’t work at all, I guess that’s why my dad it boxed many years ago.

    8 Bells for Tony Esposito.

    Yeah sure whatever, blowhard. I guess that’s why John asked me to post this. Putting false words in Tony’s mouth right now is rude and disrespectful. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    8 Bells for Tony Esposito.

    I heard that Tony Esposito sailed on yesterday. I had the pleasure of racing with Tony over the years, enjoying his jokes and especially his famous lunches. Tony was quite a character and not unlike John you really had to know him to really love him. He will be missed by many. Tony and his son John racked up quite record with their J29 Hustler. 5 time NA champion 6 time KWRW winner 12 time BIRW plus Storm Trysail race week most winningest boat winning 76% of its races Multiple NOOD reagtta winner Won every regatta entered at least once over 24 years 15 time YRALIS PHRF Champion a record that will never been seen again. my prayers and condolences to the Esposito family.

    Hey, don't step on the sails!

    The proper phrase is; “if you can’t tie a knot, tie a lot.” Got the little rhyme to make it fun.

    God the spinnakers and mains they make suck, that Genoa is garbage. It’s amazing that in this day and age with the current technology that a company can make such poor examples of sails. The art form formally known as sailmaking has been lost by some companies.

    Nasty Bird Shit Stains

    Had a similar problem and the fsr did nothing. We used on and off which is acid based. It’s great to get the eastchester bay tan off the waterline too
