  1. I can't help but smile... Will LP refund my TLC membership?

    Dick Tillman

    So sorry to read that. I interacted with Dick a few times at high level Laser and Sunfish events. He was well known in those circles and I was an absolute nobody. Nevertheless, Dick was so kind towards me (and my spouse) once we were introduced to one another. A true gentleman (and champion) sailor.

    Force 5 sailing downwind

    S-curving isn't really used by Laser sailors to prevent capsizes. It is used to go fast, especially in waves. Sailing by the lee ('4th dimension') is the way to go in a Laser downwind if your primary goal is to stay right side up. No idea about the Force 5 though...

    Nice S-curving!
  5. Nice to see a second new manufacturer actually producing boats. I imagine Nautivela passed the ILCA test.

    Absolutely, positively Laser

    And with the full-rig, no less! Well done! PS: is that sail from Charlie Buckingham?

    Only fifty bucks; good deal! And look, it can carry a family...

    Absolutely positively ILCA

    You could still try the TLC Nationals for glory, assuming there is such an event in the near future...
  9. The guy in the ad needs to practice some serious hiking, or maybe it's the boat.
  10. ILCA leadership has gotten a lot of grief in this thread, most of it misplaced, IMHO. Therefore, well done ILCA and congratulations on getting the first new builder across the finish line.

    Improving Results with Deliberate Practice

    The 'Cabarete' DVD (Advanced Laser Boat Handling) is excellent for improving tacking and jibing in different conditions.

    Clearly, I am not the only one with (ILCA/Laser) 'confusion syndrome'. May have to consult the appropriate specialist (by video, of course) to straighten me out.

    Absolutely positively ILCA

    As of 8/11, it looks like the Radial division has reached its limit. One can still register for the 'Full' and 4.7 classes.
  14. My head is spinning and this time it's not due to an accidental jibe...
