    'Catch ride' and end for end gybing

    Make sure to have a one on one with the guy trimmer prior to racing. He/ she needs to ease the guy prior to stacking it on the winch. how much? You TELL him. Try some float drop takedowns and Gybe sets for practice. have fun and keep your teeth. Sail Safe!

    J/99 anyone have info beyond the teaser?

    Time to make choices Question: 1. Carbon rig or aluminum? 2. Tiller or wheel? 3. Ballast tanks or not? boat will be bouy raced for Wednesday nights (full crew), a few double handed and less fully crewed medium distance races Per year (maybe a BDA?). my thought is: carbon, tiller, ballast, single rudder. Ps. it is also not my $$$ What say you? SailSafe

    What is the best heel/pitch angle?

    Depends on your hull form. IMHO Generally, in light air (1-7kts) you want to induce heel to: 1 help the sails take natural shape 2 reduce wetted surface and increase waterline length. 3. Point higher due to hull shape touching water. any more breeze and you want to start to flatten the boat to her optimum heel angle. SAIL SAFE

    Go Fund My fuck up.

    Looks like another Void Ho type thing it did make it to The Little Red Lighthouse under the GW bridge though.. lots of heavy metal running through there. maybe we should just go after the donators and ask for $. I want a Mod 70. sail safe

    Reluctance to fly the Y Flag

    So last weekend we raced the last two races of a Icicle Series. Wind steady 17- with gusts to 25. temp 45 f water 50 f boats less than 30 ft on inland lake with some of the boats newer to racing. No Y flag was flown for either race. I spoke to a past Commodore about it and she went on and on on how if Y is flown it could bring legal issues of liability. My only thought was WTF? Is this a trend? ps one boat did have a MOB prior to racing and was retrieved by a fisherman in good health. Sail Safe
