    I would never call my offshore boat Bacon Burger, like them to much to be reminded offshore. Or call it Steaks and chips.

    Jack, that is the problem with Ham, you can set up communication if you want. The Frenzies are good in offshore weather stuff, lots of clinics, good books, but available to all. So maybe a mix of that. And being able to use your engine makes a straight line easier. Fire it up when totally out of wind. The rest is normally all sailing.

    Pac Cup 2018

    quote pac cup site; Like a few other boats, Pyewacket and Blue are not eligible for 'overall' Pacific Cup honors. They are using new specialty reaching sails sometimes called "tweeners." These sails are recently approved under ORR but not permitted under PHRF Tweeners ? Go Fig and Riptide.
