    Merlin at 75 mph

    Def a case of, "kids these days". I wasn't born in the early-70's. My first offshore experience was on IMS boats in the late 90s during college. With that said, with Chicago being the land of misfit toys you can travel back in time and still race on an old IOR boat!

    Does this pre-date the SC70's?

    Why do they keep pumping money into this old girl? Must have some history like Sassy. Can someone give the brief overview in 150 worlds or less? What's so special about this toy?

    San Diego to Ensenada Race

    ...I drift on and off of SA so I apologize if I missed the Press Release but I thought you started with a FT10 then got a M32, then very recently sold it and got a mini/vintage Santa Cruise something (SC 30? if there is such a thing?). You are back to an FT10 now? When did that happen? Was the SC a flop? I suppose if the FT10 is called SA4 my above math is correct...

    This photo is telling... Spectator boats watching the AC boats in Chicago in 2016.

    Is sailing cool?

    The point of the thread is more about the people who think, then "act" like it's cool.... "I was offshore yacht racing this weekend". Basically those who run around telling other sailor how cool / great they are or even worst, randoms about their offshore accomplishments. Most people DGAF!

    Is sailing cool?

    Serious question! Is it cool? I mean it's fun, technical, competitive, and you meet great people but are there some that take the "scene" too far? You know who I mean, the guy who goes into the office on Thursday morning and thinks he is impressing his co-works talking about Wednesday Night Offshore Yacht Racing. Once you drive out of the yacht club parking lot the things that are "cool" may not be that special.

    If they are serious about another attempt this year, Thursday looks pretty promising! Look at the SailFlow forecast...

    Arete' tri going for Chicago to Mac record

    Sounds like they would have had it if they would have started a couple hours earlier... Balancing act I assume .
