    No shit, wonder if it has some type of retrieval system.

    Quite obviously it is a whachama doodle. Bunch of Simple Jacks on this site.

    Is sailing cool?

    Only cool to other sailors. Very few others get it.

    what's your top boatspeed in a J boat?

    I am not saying its not possible, I just have a hard time believing that a J92 could ever go faster downwind than a Viper or a Melges 24.

    Melges 24 vs Seascape 18

    Ok seriously a VX-1 vastly superior to a M24? Maybe with just 2 crew in over 12kts a breeze. Give me under 8kts of breeze and 1 other friend and I'll beat a VX up down and around the course every time.

    Hey boys keep the politics out of sailing. The only left or right we should worry about is the shift that is about to come in. Just my .02 cents. Have a Great day!

    Kiwi 35 v melges 30

    All I'll say is if you were still upright and moving upwind in 40+ gusting to 50 in a Kiwi 35. Than you guys were most definitely Experts and had Balls of Steel that I am sure helped hold that winged see-saw of a sailboat down. Congrats for you. Although my Buddy Ben in St. Martin has had a lot of fun with his highly modified Kiwi 35. Done well with it.

    Kiwi 35 v melges 30

    Kiwi can only go upwind in light-mod air with no chop, none. You need just the right amount of friends that know how to balance things for that. Fast downwind until it becomes dangerous. Not your normal whip outs. Go for the Melges it is a better boat in every way shape and form.

    Beneteau 38.1 Performance Version

    No need to say anymore. No fucking Traveler and you want to call it a performance boat? Crazy

    J121 impressions

    Thanks for the info. We have one by us, look like they are still trying to figure things out.

    J121 impressions

    The 121 has sailed in a few regattas now, and new opinions? Great boat, bad boat, or just a typical Jboat?

    video evidence

    You could then say the same thing about the J121. Give them time to figure out rig tune, sails, etc.
