    70' Cruising Proa....Big Red Yacht

    @harryproa Rob....I know I'm never going to convince you that standard cats and tris are more efficient pound for pound even though the overwhelming boating / design fraternity disagree with you. And that's ok. And the above is the sole reason I would not own one.... nothing to do with the colorful people that sail them

    Yep he did well... same as Charley and louis... Boris just doesn't seem to get to the lead... not saying he won't but hasn't ...This race now suits a slightly different boat than the SO leg Boris my have that boat. We know Louis has...

    Reynolds 33 roll call

    Great stuff Ronnie The famous Australian racer Flat Chat (Yellow Grainger) is in Fiji as well... Hope you get to play with them... Sailing that R33 to a surf at Cloud Break and then a blast home sounds like the all time perfect day to me.... congrats
  10. Posting that pic on anarchy (Sail trim wise) is like a red rag to bull I've found.... lol.... Cool boat

    Vendee Globe 2020

    Doing some playbacks this morning..... i'm super impressed with Louis Burton on BV2 and his gains on the the other 3 in this weather. It's how he started the race. Him and Yannick may now not be as disadvantaged by their boats age with the two new boats not able to perform at 100% due to boards.... Am I right in saying louis and yannick's boats / foils are 100%...? Pip's going the wrong way (150deg.)... WTF

    High speed foiling mainsail control

    Yeah I've talked numbers with them when I bought a new rig.... they were 3 x the price..... not saying they aren't worth it but I just couldn't do it

    Great interview if I had more $ i was absolutely going to try a twin skin main on a rotating rig. It is now almost in reach of the everyday sailor

    70' Cruising Proa....Big Red Yacht

    Actually, i respectfully disagree ..... Proa threads are generally colorful due to the strange and varied personalities that like this style of boat. Multi people by mono standards were weirdos in the past because we were alternative but that's changed as we are now mainstream. Proa people have taken that crown and this thread is a good example. Now i'm not a proa fan as I believe cats and tris tick all the boxes and i can find no examples of Proas that have any advantages over cats and tris for cruising and racing anywhere but that's me.....BTW I feel the same about unstayed rigs. BUT... Good luck to you all for enjoying the ocean and sailing. I believe the hate here in both camps is making some look stupid and is certainly not doing your craft any favors. if i was contemplating a build, i'd run the other way reading this train wreck. It would be great to just follow and celebrate @r.finn's epic voyage in one of your craft. I certainly will follow his trip. It's also, IMHO, the closest example of a proa that is actually efficient and semi practical .... Best of luck to him. He has and will do more for your cause than anyone before. Sorry for the interruption. Carry on the hate......

    Sad but by looking at examples around the globe..... it's true We now know when we rely on the masses to do the right thing, or self isolate, they selfishly don't.

    Why stop now Hawaii had an opportunity to hold it back.... i assume the reason they didn't was due to the statement below... ? And you don't fuck with an American's constitutional rights....... right...? I'd love to do this race
