    @smackdaddy Are you talking about apparent wind speed (AWS)?
  2. Roundings roundings and more roundings. Use two permanent marks roughly windward leeward that are close together and do repeated laps. If you have a symmetric spinnaker, do a bunch of poleless jibes (like 10 in a row at least). Do repeated 3 minute "starts" using your ProStart. Get familiar with the numbers enough that you can tell if you're early or late. On tacks, make it a race to the rail and see who is last. Or if roll tacking, are you moving as one? Can never be too good at tacking - hone your timing and trim progression. Pay attention to how long it takes to get back up to top speed. Have a plan for each session. Going out with no plan means you will just have a fun time but not get any better. Debrief every practice, and take the improvements and optimizations into your next practice. Keep grinding.

    What makes the difference between a "really good" racer and a truly elite one?

    Facemaks -CDC changes direction

    Became a big believer in these at the J24 worlds in Miami. They work.

    J-24 Worlds Results 2019

    Biscayne Bay is a fantastic venue and it was an amazingly deep fleet. Definitely looking forward to Corpus Christi in 2022! It's a long way off, but @Gouvernail you need to help rally that strong TX J24 contingent back into action! Never too early to talk it up.

    J/24 Worlds- predictions?

    "You can't win the regatta on day one, but you can lose it." -- I think this applies to several pro boats in the fleet. Several are in the hurt locker.

    Triton2 nmea 2000 speed update rate

    Nevermind. Global reset on the Triton2 display did the trick.
  8. Have a DST800 speed sensor talking to a B&G Triton2 display via NMEA 2000. Just a compass in addition - it is a very simple setup. Question: what update rate should I expect for the boatspeed? It currently seem to update boatspeed on the display about once a second. This is with damping turned off. There is significant lag in the system. When we spin the paddlewheel by hand, and stop it, it takes the display about 5 seconds to wind down to boatspeed = 0 Honestly it is acting like damping is set to display every 1 second. But the docs say we should be seeing the raw data (not damped). Help!!

    Congrats to Team Solveig!! Way to go Stina & George!
  11. In rainy weather, our telltales stick to the genoa and become useless. McLube doesn't really help. Anyone have a solution? Thx
  12. I've been told that depth sensors are sensitive to low battery voltage levels. No clue what your situation is, but something to keep in mind when your depth readings aren't reliable. Also - Puget Sound is notorious for thermoclines.
  13. Had a bit of an epiphany while cruising this summer up in Canada. I was short handed with a distinct lack of experienced hands on board. The class 108sqm kite worked fine with an ATN sock. I could basically do everything, with my crew steering. Besides the sock, the trick was to leave the main down. With no main blanketing, we could sail nearly DDW with breeze > 5 kts. Since you're from the PNW, I'm sure you understand the value of this when in amongst the islands. With the sock, I felt comfortable with sets and douses up to about 14 kts. Above that point it would have been a little exciting on the douse for me (not being able to blanket the kite behind the main)...I didn't go there. So for cruising, my new trick downhill is kite with a sock and no main. Racing of course would be a different story.
