    J 88 North Americans

    The J/30 class has provided loaner boats to out of towners that have qualified in their local area and would like to participate in the national championship. That has worked pretty well.

    VANGUARD 15 North American Regatta

    Marcus, what does the J/70 Corinthians have to do with the V15 NAs? The ratio of competitor/support boat was much higher at the V15s. Even at the J/70s, the windward mark boat wrapped a prop and needed assistance from the jury boat. What's your point?

    Tilting the mast forward?

    In the past I read an article about the theory on why this works. when going ddw, there's no flow over the main. It's completely stalled. If you cant the rig forward, you get some airflow from the foot up to the top of the main... which generates a force straight downwind. Dunno if that's actually the case in rl.

    Rule 22.3 kicks in only when moving astern by backing sails. I don't think the messy takedown counts as backing sails.
  9. I ordered some parts a week ago. One is backordered. Wisht I had known about West Coast then. btw, I'm guessing Sturgiss won't be around much longer either.

    Rules at a downwind finish line

    Ummm... the 14th commandment... though shalt not make contact with another boat, even if you are right of way?

    Rules at a downwind finish line

    There are actually several situations, and would be interesting in a different thread.

    Rules at a downwind finish line

    When the first boat enters the zone, take a picture. The inside boat gets room to finish. Even if A entered the zone first, B would have been overlapped, and therefore B must be given room to finish (as previous poster said).
