    J/111 Goes Sailing...

    Any thoughts on the boat's potential to develop an OD fleet on the GLs? Will 105 owners want to move to a 111? Seems a bit expensive for an OD fleet to take off...

    I can't find results for the Hood anywhere either. Anyone? Me neither... They're posted now at Susan Hood Results That was one of the best Susan Hood races in recent memory. Enough wind and rain to keep it interesting with one hell of a lightning show. Never thought I'd have fun flying a chute in a lightning storm in the middle of the night...

    The windward-leeward format is not the best place to try racing for the first time. Going downwind with the chute up, you have to worry about people coming upwind etc. This did not happen much in the days of triangles. The racing scene I remember from the late 70s/80s was more social, more recreational than it is now. I suggest that this young fellow consider doing some of the distance races on Lake Ontario, in particular, the short-handed series. The starts are more relaxed, you get to race on all points of sail, and the atmosphere is much closer to what I recall from my youth. There is a PCYC-Youngstown race coming up I believe. I encourage this young guy to give it another try. I think his experience will be completely different.
