    Estimating Sailing Time?

    WEST MARINE

    If I get blood on my sail?

    Ok, have the best (worst) bloody story, and my TCC friends can vouch for it's accuracy. Sailing my old IC USA204, at the fall dinghy fest here, big gusty day, wetsuit on, was on end of seat all the way out when at full tilt the seat slid in so fast I couldn't even react. My butt crack hit the edge of carriage so hard I almost blacked out. Recovered enough to start sailing back to start line when I saw the blood trail on water and seat. Went in and stripped down to find massive gash in the worst place possible, went to emergency room and had 17 stitches put in! And I have the scar to prove it, but only my wifey has ever seen it. And probably only an IC sailor can appreciate.

    Try sailing an IC, I look like a gladiator with all the protective gear I wear, learned the hard way.

    How Do You Fly Your Flag?

    And we only have them because of our local moth sailor, john bartlett, who put the Texas flag on the side of his moth so could see it at worlds. I copied it and made them for our TCC'rs, but we put them on main for more visibility. And vwap should be put to death, my eyes cannot unsee!

    rs aero

    Gouv, it reminds me of my old mx-ray, really fun downwind, the windier the better, but it also goes to weather, much unlike the mx. Buy the deck pad from KO, will make all the diff in the world to yer feet and knees.
