    Youth America's Cup

    What makes you think this is going to be inexpensive? Probably at least a USD500,000 boat as is.

    Platoon is full on owner-driver, and they do very well. Harm is a former Dragon World champ, I believe.

    Wise Words

    As I was entering the age of going to bars (not necessarily legally) my father used to say “nothing good ever happened in a bar after midnight”. He always had a sly smile too. Of course, I ignored his advice until years later when I finally figured out what he really meant : if you can’t get the hot chick to leave with before midnight, you really don’t want to wake up with the one who would leave with you at 2am. Would have been nice if he had also told me about coyote love, and having to chew your arm off in order to make the escape in the morning, but I guess he figured it best for me to learn the hard way.

    Siebel Sailors: Southern Yahoos Need Not Apply

    Seeing as the Seibels are from San Fran it’s a given one of the facilities would be there. Perhaps it might be best to just say thanks and build the specific case for why your hometown should also be the beneficiary of this program in the hopes there’s a round two, or another willing donor.

  7. The best thing that could happen to junior sailing in the US is for colleges to stop considering sailing as any aspect of the admission process.

    Rube Goldberg flying

    Read that two hang gliders crashed at Torrey Pines this weekend. If they were cliff height and landed on the beach, that’s a long way down.

    395’s had some serious issues with the core getting wet, and several of them were missing a stringer.

    Some quality issues on some of their boats is a vast understatement. I don’t think I could buy a Carroll boat, ever.
