    AC TV Coverage

    If I had a VPN, which country should I set it to do it isn't geo-blocked? I would really like to be able to watch complete races. Thanks

    Can I add a jib furler?

    Most dinghies with blade jibs don't put away the jib when flying the spinnaker. the only one I know of the is Buccaneer and that boat is unique in having a genoa with a lot of overlap which would make handling the genoa and spinnaker difficult. I think the Buccaneer uses a "structural furler" where the forestay wire is the furler wire and the jib is a zip luff.

    Ts3 DIW?

    I was interested in the Ts3. They built a nice looking prototype but the boat builder in Spain doesn't have any mention of the boat on their page and the latest news is from 2019... https://ts3catamaran.com/ https://www.mestralmarineworks.com/

    Cat tails from over the horizon

    St some point would like to see this boat in person. Seems pretty minimalist but also attractive. https://12knots.com/en/yacht-charter/mrs-b-525/water-music-mmk1672185030000103066/
  6. There were a couple Aussie geezers a few years back that did a Sydney Hobart then sailied direct to England to do the Fastnet and then sailed back to Oz. Anybdy know where their logs are?

    Vendee Globe 2020

    so since TNZ in the last AC developed the idea of pedaling rather than grinding why has no one else picked it up? The only other person I know that went the pedal route is Franck Cammas when he solo'ed his Groupama X.

    Cats between 30 -35 feet

    Seems like it's gone... it was the PackSail boat. I couldn't tell how well the interior was done. It was listed for a pretty good price.

    Deal or no deal

    Is this a good buy? I always thought these were very nice boats. https://balancecatamarans.com/our-models/451-2

    Pro Surfers on a Gunboat

    Yeah I was prepared to hate it but watched the whole series.
  11. Who's making small cruising cats? If you had some cash burning a hole in your pocket and wanted something to do some coastal cruising what boats could you buy?

    Whats the fastest you've ever been on a dinghy?

    It's always hotter in Columbia, except Augusta

    What happened to Erik Lerouge?

    That is sad. I think only one Rackam 32 was built. There's a build log of it at boomerang.bzh. I haven't read the whole thing but I think the owners had to finish themselves. There are really not enough boats around this size on the market
