    Tanzer 25 Opinions or Knowledge

    That just shows to go ya that Kapn Kriz knew his sh*t. He was (is?) competitive in a variety of windspeeds with the tiny tanzer. God I miss those days of mayhem down in Solomons....

    Tanzer 25 Opinions or Knowledge

    Raced against one (the Joubert-Nivelt design) quite a bit a few years ago (vs anarchist KapnKriz) We had a couple of Merit25s, a J24, a Kirby and some other like-boat 24-25 footer in competition with one another. The Tanzer was always in the running and Kapn won his share of races. Very cool little boat!

    The 2018 Golden Globe Race

    It had to do with a certain Offshore coach at a certain service academy located nearby, I think....

    Todays Race Boat getting Spanked by old school

    Never sell Jahn short. He and his team have transformed the Offshore Team from a lack-luster mid-fleet team into a formidable bunch of sailors and sailorettes. I love competing against those blue boats, because you'd better bring your A-game. Once at ARW more than a few years back, we were racing against one of the Navy 44's and a squall was approaching. There was some conversation on board our boat about reefing. While we were debating, the N44 performed the most efficient and instantaneous reefs I've ever seen, I mean the choreography was perfect. While we were digging in and getting overwhelmed in each puff, the 44 lit out like a scalded cat. (frame grab from Trevor H) Hats off to Coach Tihansky and the Navy Offshore Team!

    Todays Race Boat getting Spanked by old school

    Why anyone would race PHRF (or any Single Number system) in an ocean race is probably a better question. ORRez has handicap numbers for this race based on 2 legs, the bay and and offshore, and then factors in windspeed and course configurations to give accurate VPP numbers to each, individual boat. PHRF is so Last Century. But we already knew that.

    I guarantee you Christian knows a thing or two about racing. But yeah, the conditions this year do not favor the XP44....done enough Bermuda Races where they completely kicked ass.
