    The Swedish Experiment

    Meanwhile contamination in Sweden according to the Johns Hopkins GIS.
  2. On board sailing boats without a in board toilet, a regulair action. For the ladies we have this fantastic option.
  3. US$ 1,16 mln is a somewhat different price tag then US$ 681,707; almost a double price. But the Hinckley has a lifting keel furling headsail and more pushbutton facilities. 13.7 ton from the Hinckley versus 15.5 from the Beneteau, the Beneteau is 3 foot taller https://ancasta.com/boats-for-sale/new-boats/beneteau-sail/first-yacht/yacht-53/

    Enjoying the death of 100 thousands with your pest-face? Mad has me on ignore because he never can be on the right side. Squezing his hands in lust to screw people. You lost the right track long ago.

    Linked out comes from the constrution site: Thomas Ruyant: This vendee has more possible winners and high profile sailors then ever before. The best can be expected at the Ocean race as well.

    THE IMOCA thread, single/double handed & TOR

    Apivia is a smooth ride and Charal is disrupting? Apivia won last year transat Jacques Vabre 2019, you probably noticed.

    Something refreshing to read

    Hiking like this? Modern boats are more ergonomic in this. Groucho Marx said that humor is the best approach of the truth because everyone knows what is meant. He was a comedian.

    Has anybody started fully crewed racing yet?

    Vendee globe is officialy starting this year on the 8th of november. https://www.vendeeglobe.org/en/news/19681/start-approved-for-8th-november It's single handed racing so not al lot of contamination . Crowds on the other hand, during the start in Sable d'Olonne, are definitely not corona safe. Star raced today in Zurich. Swiss and german competitors: file:///C:/Users/TOONVA~1/AppData/Local/Temp/star__r3___start_list__30.pdf More regatta's:

    Great 35-footers

    Funny, the invention of a balanced rudder is made in 1840's by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and first used on the SS Great Britain. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balanced_rudder
