    Sydney to Hobart 2017

    Nobody knows where this thing went? I just found a sailing world from 2005 that had a feature.

    Are Mount Gay Rum Hats Cool?

    I'll give you the right of passage, once upon a time. When they were branded with the event, they were kind of a keepsake (if they made it to pink and tattered, a legendary keepsake). I imagine the people who collect them have them carefully stored in a cool regatta tote bag for preservation. Once they dropped the event branding on the back, which also coincided with everyone in the world owning 3 per regatta sailed, they became landfill.

    25'-30' Sprit Boat For $75k

    Fareast 28 is a nice option too. J92S if you can find.

    Lake Ontario Anarchy

    Svanen, you are right about the pools, lawn bowling and tennis, sadly on the rest you are mistaken. Other than PCYC, I'm not seeing much competition from the north side of the lake for racing....which isn't saying a lot about others. It's a club sponsored fleet and I imagine there will be 15 by summer 2019. The Ideals will remain in place for a few more years at least as a LTS boat.

    Why is there so much volume at the top end of the rudder? Wouldn't a more vertical leading edge present less drag?

    Lake Ontario Anarchy

    Having raced quite a bit on Lake Ontario I was pleased to see such a great turnout for the open. That being said, having occasionally asked for something other than windward leeward racing I'm wondering how the trapezoid course was received by the racers? Was RC up to the challenge?
