    It’s time to replace PHRF once and for all!

    well, actually - that's not the first problem that came to my mind....rather what european bloke was pointing out.

    +1 even if we do not have PHRF over here....

    As soon as they learn the game, some "rule beater ORC bandits" will appear, then participation will start to decrease. Been there done that (Italy).

    J/99 anyone have info beyond the teaser?

    Interesting...no direct experience myself. You mean light air W/L ? Quite common conditions over here.

    Anyone having direct experience on how the J/99 fares against the Italia Yachts 998 ? They are similar boats in size and concept. Here in Italy it seems the IY is faster on handicap (not surprising since the IY is known to be an ORC bandit) but also boat for boat, which is less obvious, and regardless of wind strength. Being the J/99 lighter, I'd have assumed it would be generally faster. This does not appear to be the case.

    thanks ; I was wondering if fin keel (+ no ballast) is still good for shorthanded sailing ? I guess stability is somewhat reduced re bulbed version

    which keel configuration and what are the typical conditions ? (light/medium/strong) - thanks

    Not even there. Renewables = unreliable = no future = sorry

    what us7070 is describing/pointing out, very much fits what we see here in northern adriatic area...

    other problem with both jpk 1030 & sf 3300 (indeed, not with jpk 1010) is aesthetics...very hard to digest (at least for me) - while j-boats are always very good looking boats (at least in my view)

    Single line reefing?

    Looks nice, thanks JL92s

    Interesting. Would you share a pic of your arrangement ? I have a single line system in my J92s but doesn't work well (too much friction).
  13. Here in Italy all racing is canceled for at least one month. This thing is a serious threat and I believe it had been neglected initially.

    Isn't the UK boat bulbless (flat keel) ? as opposed to the L-keel type that you should have sailed. L-type much stiffer.
