    Working on as many as we can fit it, may even have a new cut down main to try on the ole Thistle.

    1969 D&M, we bought in 25 years ago and though we would buy a new one when it started holding us back from winning; it hasn't happened yet.

    The cut down main makes the wife very happy and allows us to two hand the boat quite well.
  5. Wife and are racing (Portsmouth) our Thistle with 18" cut off the bottom of the main and find the boat is sailing very well. With the main only, try raising the centerboard about a third. This will help with the sail area balance. Keeping your weight as forward as practical should help as well. Please join the class and get on our email list, lots of great help out there.

    I would love to see you join us, the more the merrier. I'm trying to get the better half to let me build the Dix DS15.

    2019 Texas Centerboard Circuit

    So it is written... Eligibility The 2019 Texas Centerboard Circuit is open to all Portsmouth Centerboard Classes as adopted by the US Sailing Association. The TCC adopts the Corinthian spirit of amateurism with an emphasis on the amateur owner driving their own boat. One person may race different boats at different regattas, however, each boat will be scored separately.
