    Thanks for the nice report Paul. Re the sprit : do you mean that there are two different sizes, one shorter for symmetrically rigged boats, as opposed to standard length for the asymmetrical boats ? Is the zero measuring as "spinnaker" in IRC terms ? thanks ciao from Italy max

    Alternative to facnor flatdeck furler?

    That's exactly my experience, except that things got much better with a really smaller line (8 mm) - so far no slippage but less friction which makes things "almost" OK. Also - the fact that you can only furl anti clockwise does not help user friendliness

    Well, I've noted that, but there was also this statement in the J/Boats facebook "With 19 kts of wind, hitting a steady 11.3 kts, at 146 AWA"...but I agree on the comment on the sea state...

    Bowsprit looks a bit short - at least compared with 88 & 111

    Interesting - the boat with no bulb and shorthanded crew still seems quite stable at 20 knots wind (assuming the claims on facebook page are accurate). Wondering if they were using any water ballast

    Tuff Luff Aero Foil vs Classic

    agree vert battens are a pain in the ass....but with a wide sail bag I can leave them in and still manage folding the sail...

    Tuff Luff Aero Foil vs Classic

    if you wanna go pricey and convenient...have a look to Ubi Maior jiber. It's a structural furler quite light w long luff...very happy with it in my J92S. Retaining furler' convenience with much lighter weight and super thin luff.

    Garmin Quatix 3/5 vs... ?

    How does the “burn time” feature work in the Quatix 5 ? I am curious if its calculated based on current approaching speed, or rather on target speed....guess this makes a ton of difference

    New wireless wind transducer from B&G

    In my experience Tacktick system is OK (10 years of use now) EXCEPT for the wind transducer. Any new one I had installed doesn't last more than 6-10 months.
