    FF-SLAG seems to have found another gear this afternoon. Wonder if anything changed??

    For those in Johnstone Strait: Yikes! This at Fanny Island.

    Love it! Although, the tracker shows the Melges 32 doing 7.3 right now vs 4.9 for the Santa Cruz 27. Go Wild Card.

    And the leader at the moment is a 40 (approx. ) year old Santa Cruz 27. Go Wild Card!

    Most impressed with the sailors/performance of Wild Card, Santa Cruz 27. Not exactly a $250,000 sportboat.

    No Swiftsure thread?

    Did anyone else notice how quickly Crossfire made it out to the Bank? Seemed amazingly fast. On a side note, I remember racing against the Dashes on Seven ( J36 ) in the 80's. God, I must be old!
  7. Lots of talk of something like a super TP52. So, out of curiosity, what sort of upwind/downwind speeds are we likely to see? My guess it they they won't be hitting the start line at 35 knots.

    Rolex Fastnet Race 2017

    Lest you all think I am a multihull sailor, I am not although we did operate a 55 Alexis Simonis cat in the Virgin Islands for a few years. So what are the chances the MOD 70 Concise 10 will finish before some entrants even make it to Lands end? Of course, they may fall into a hole along the way.

    Wow, that MOD70 Concise is flying. Couldn't find her on the tracker at first., she was so far ahead.

    Just checked the tracker. The first thing I noticed was the huge fleet and then the tri. Maybe a single handed Frenchman.

    Poll: Next AC Boat

    Just tried to watch some of the 1992 America's cup videos. Painful to watch. At one time, I thought it was exciting, now it put me to sleep. Maybe I am getting old.....

    North Atlantic probable record

    Average speed 28.35 knots single handed. Astonishing to say the least.

    Transpac 2017

    So... Rio lost a rudder, had to make "at sea repairs", limped in a day and a half behind Comanche, but still beat her! Kind of takes away some of Comanche's thunder or is the rating system that skewed? Go Merlin and Hobie 33!

    Transpac 2017

    I think RIO lost a rudder, hence the 500 miles.
