    What's happened to the VX One ?

    Other news: The first VX in SE Asia proved it is a fairly decent boat racing under IRC, when it came 2nd in Phuket Kings Cup in a 10 boat fleet in IRC2. The event started two days after delivery of the boat. Orca99

    If I get blood on my sail?

    then i would recommend that you stop sailing with your spouse
  3. I saw two AC 12 m yachts, masts etc sitting ashore in Miri, Borneo, Malaysia......I believe they are from Japan

    Race Replays

    Rudder - if you get to Thailand some time - let me know - you have earned a day on my 33' powerboat or a couple on my OK dinghy

    Artemis Penalty Fair or Shit?

    was it not course 6 with finish option F, they sailed? as i said earlier, it is crazy to have different rules for the last rounding before the finish depending on the course & finish option; they could issue an amendment to the SI to say that rule 18.3 always apply.

    Artemis Penalty Fair or Shit?

    For course 6, finish option F, the last rounding before the finish is a gate, see SI. Rule 18.3 does not apply, as nothing in SI / amendments say otherwise (yet- as it is crazy to have different mark rounding rules depending on course sailed) Applicable rules: 10 (p/s), 16.1 When a right-of-way yacht changes course, she shall give the other yacht room to keep clear. . Hence TNZ was not allowed to dial down in the close cross situation as it would have left Artemis with no way of avoiding a collision. 18.2: give mark room; and as far as i could tell markroom was available Umpires call appear dubious Orca99

    Corsair Pulse 600

    I just finished sailing a pulse in Kings Cup in Phuket with a mate. I agree with what is said above; we sailed in 0 to 35 knots and found the tri to be quite forgiving; we never stuffed the bows in hard, but both of us have a lot of F18 experience; it is very fun to sail in high winds; on a long distance race around islands, we spent 3 of 3.5 hours in the hiking straps and finished an hour ahead of the next of 5 Pulses. I will take my GF along as coskipper next time we race these. In light winds a Platu 25 is faster; it would be nice with a high performance version with a 2-3 m taller mast and rudders/curved foils on outer hulls.
