    Around the Vinyard Race. Ok to use your engine?

    Good on you for sticking it out but.. why not start your engine, motor clear of the mark and start drifting? You wouldn’t of lost the hour plus you anchored and had to sail Around the can and would of only received a 15 minute slap on the wrist? That’s what is BS and typical of Edgartown YC ps I noticed how far in your were in to the beach and thought you might be in trouble

    That’s BS. I know of at least 3 boats that withdrew because they used engines to avoid the same sandbar Edgartown YC always does it their own way!

    Great boats. One of my top choices if I had that money to spend for a dual purpose boat. Looking at that listing, factor in 75-100k for new sails

    Boat transport PR to SXM

    Anyone have experience on shipping boat/trailer from PR to SXM? 36’ sport boat currently in Fajardo. We prefer to get boat and trailer but it seems like a logistical nightmare so option 2 is someone in PR with a powerboat that can tow the boat over. This would have to be someone local who can take advantage of a wind/weather window and get boat 120 miles upwind.

    It’s an issue and I almost had mine grinded into the main sheet block. Supposedly they will be making covers to help avoid this happening again

    A third of ones in RI now were made in UK. You can tell which boat you get by the sticker in the stbd aft cockpit

    It’s a good thing the watermaker broke for the safety of those on board!
