  1. probably. I think the storyline was that he was so focussed on the next edition, that he forgot to sell the current edition.
  2. you can rent bicycles at the trainstation of The Hague. from there it is about 15 min by bike to Scheveningen. otherwise, tram will be easiest. train from Rotterdam to The Hague is 20 mins and from amsterdam 35.

    “Knot” a cool pun: worst boat names ever

    there is a guy in the Netherlands, who got his money by selling hygienic paper (toiletpaper, paper towels, etc). his boat name is Wiper one.

    yep, but cannot give them at this moment...
  5. parking is terrible/nonexistent. easiest is to rent a bike or take the tram. no boat parking, also not for ribs and not on the beach.

    everybody doin' it?

    Yes, but that is downwind and that system is built in. the boom on centreline is upwind. here they lost the backstay and runners from the look of it. this much rake used to be possible, till they brought it back to 5cm movement at deck level.

    on dragons it is usually on the centreline. with dragons, the jib is speed, the main helps with pointing. same on the 8mr's

    Aerodynamics of sail platform on boom

    Why reinvent the wheel. There are plenty of examples for solutions. Have a look at the park avenue boom on the jclass or other options here

    that was a great race. we had about 35kts of wind and big waves. we were on Falcon. first the bow would go under water, than the aft deck would dive as we drove of the waves. that was the final race day of the championship
