    Sydney to Hobart 2019

    I have been told the crew inside the hull did not see any hole in the hull and from the outside, the break was flush with the hull.

    SailGP 2019

    There is a huge amount of money and effort being spent on what is fast but fairly average racing. The racing will get better as the crews get better, but will it last that long? I think it would be better if they did racing for two or three weekends in each location. You will get a lot more racing, exposure and build-up for the sponsors. The points could be double on week two and triple on week three to keep the excitement and interest.

    Rules question re multi and mono on start line

    My suggestion is a high speed timed run for the start. Hull flying over the committee boat, and if there is a gap, you will be gone before anyone can luff. If no gap - too bad!

    Percentage of the distance foiling

    these boats can't stand up unless they are foiling, so it will have to be greater than 70%, or there will be no racing.

    code flag "Y"

    I always assumed the Y flag was there for dinghy sailing, from the good ol' days when men were tough, and life jackets were only for sissy's. Nowadays, it is written into the sailing instructions. I would class a J22 as a "large" yacht, and not a dinghy, and therefore it is the skippers responsibility and decision, not the yacht clubs.

    Recoating carbon mast

    I did the same. Previously I had used a one pot vanish, and that lasted six or seven seasons. I am expecting longer from the two pot. For a small mast, there isn't that much work to sand and re-coat. the trick is to re-coat before it starts to peel.

    Larry's AC50 Circus

    Looking at the timetables for Sky and Prime, there is not sign of any sailing on either Friday or Saturday. It must either be on a separate pop-up channel (not listed), or it will be kicking rugby, cricket or golf off air.
  12. Change all the ropes on the boat to the same colour - It makes life easier for the skipper to shout - pull the yellow rope - no the other yellow rope.

    PHRF is not run by self-interested clowns

    You need to accept that PHRF is just a means to randomly allocate prizes across the fleet.

    PredictWind Models - which one?

    There are two main sources of weather forecasts for all weather forecasting, ECMWF & GFS. The PWG, and PWE are predicts winds own model using the data from these two sources. Depending on the time frame you are looking at, you will tend to lean towards one of more of the forecasts. For example, if you are wanting to make call for the Opti's later in the day, you could choose the forecast than best matches the current conditions, plus based on the location, you will need to make your best call. I know where I sail, if the forecasts are predicting 10 to 15 kt's west, we will get nearer 25 knots.
