    Magic 25 Rig Tune

    If you’re looking to replace sails then either go to Ian Short or North NZL as they race their own Magics.

    Sounds about right! Bend it to just where you think it will snap, then keep going a bit more! We smashed the tits off the Magics in big winds and all of them are still on their original spars. We went downwind in honking conditions and decided to get the kite up and were having a blast until the skippy pointed out that the tip of the mast was on the edge of inverting, the kite was pulling it so much. No idea what speeds we hit but it felt like we were doing 50 knots* and we swallowed a lot of water through our laughs and woots! *Obviously we weren't!

    Magic 25 Rig Tune

    I am curious as to the topline tuning tips in the document as I used to sail Magics quite a bit and don't remember there being much tuning involved, unless you mean for the set-up when you're putting the stick in and setting it up. With a near useless vang and outhaul with a fixed bridle on the main you are really only left with jib cars and cunni. We fiddles with adjusting the ram when we were n light wind and/or going downwind but didn't notice enough difference to overcome the hassle of doing it whilst racing. We found that weight distribution played a much bigger role, as did playing that big kite downwind to its max. Cheers.

    Musicians Who Deserve Their Great Reputations

    The Tragically Hip are one of those bands that truly deserve to be in this thread. It's odd how so many artists can be massive in their own country yet be very underestimated in others. It is more understandable if they are 'foreign' bands and don't perform in English but still, good music is good music. The Australian version of this phenomenon is Powderfinger. A good Dutch performer:

    Ivanka For United Nations Ambassador (not a joke)

    The presidency of the United States has been reduced to a daughter looking after a father who is going through his period.

    I'm seeing a lot more to John Mayer. His finger and thumb playing gives an amazing sound.

    Carbon3 trimaran coming to Hong Kong

    Where in Hong Kong will you keep her? If you're up in Shelter Cove you're only going to need the outboard to get past the Nam Wai gap so no issues of a big sea. If you're in the harbour or Aberdeen you will have to deal with more chop and control getting it into the YC. Discovery/Clearwater Bay etc should also be fairly straight forward.

    It’s Shelter Cove, not Sai Kung.
