    We have humming at different speeds, the rudders were chamfered on trailing edge but I don't think the daggerboards were done. Yes we had them up for a while but Bill had trouble with steering so they went back down half way. I wish we had lifting boards for those conditions as bow depressing and would be reduced. The lifeline ended on the winch as it was on the inside of the spin sheet (spin sheet is led from outside of boat under the lifeline to the winch) as the sheet now went directly out to the sail, the lifeline was trapped on the sheet and ultimately the winch

    The mainsail was out pretty far, our rig rotates and shrouds are pretty far aft. So it does not actually touch the spreaders but the shroud. The spin sheet turning block is attached to our aft stern cleat with Amsteel blue line which broke at a knot luckily as this suddenly released 10-12 feet of spin sheet until the sheet line pull was directly to the winch from the spinnaker. The result was that the stantion was in the way of this. The support base was torn almost completely off and the stantion broke in half. Our life lines are spectra and due to the spinnaker sheet line new line pull direction, the lifeline somehow ended over the winch in the event.

    Bill owned Afterburner and raced that successfully, we are used to pushing during a race but you have to learn what limits are. And most sailing in southern California is light winds so we wanted to try something more challenging.

    We chose to do the Hardway race on Wahoo, this takes us around Santa Cruz island, know for big winds and rough seas. This was the first time for Wahoo to race in these conditions and we had to see how the boat would handle it. We had discussed putting in a reef before we got to the windy area but never did. We rounded the island with jib, then went to screecher and boat was fast but then decided to go to the bigger furling spinnaker. Wind and waves were increasing but felt that the boat was OK, more and more waves were coming up and over the boat and now over the cabin top. We had crew on the spin and mainsheet read to dump. We were sailing deep and both bows went into a large wave, boat suddenly decelerated, I was starting to ease the spin sheet but the spin block lashing broke from the sudden increase in strain, this broke, pulling forward, breaking the carbon stantion and ripping the base from the hull, ending with lifeline in my winch so I could not release. I felt the boat lifting and heard the other crew say hang on she's going over. I was still trying to deal with the winch and spin sheet. They said the stern lifted 12 feet out of the water, then the boat started to round up as the apparent wind moved aft on the mainsail, sheet was dumped and luckily the boat came back down. Furling spinnaker could not be sheeted and block was missing so we went back out with the screecher and had to pull spinnaker down and into a small forward hatch. Very hard work for the 2 foredeck guys. https://youtu.be/ptKZu597T84

    Good job Bill on the trackers and combining the races, now we need some pro video footage or some way that boats can send video to Nosa for a pro to make a great video and promote it for next year

    Race tracking

    Trackers should not be delayed, many boats have AIS and that data is not delayed. Nothing worse that watching the Transpac start and nothing shows on the computer for hours.

    Race tracking

    Yes Bill, great idea. NOSA needs to get with the program and bring a little more technology to the race. I know we enjoy the AIS data, those without AIS would be able to see how their competition is doing, NOSA website might end up being more interesting to follow. Those crew members who can't make the race can follow positions and speed and have drinking games or cry in their beer because they are missing out doing 20 knots. No time delay, who is that serious anyway that they don't want to share data

    Make N2E Great Again

    All boats should have yellow brick trackers but not have the silly 4 hour delay like transpac so the public or those on SA can follow the race. Get some professional reporters to keep race info up to date like Fastnet race. Look into how/what the English do to attract so many boats to their races. http://www.rolexfastnetrace.com/ Yacht club board members need to get more involved in getting and helping boat participation, (what does Dana Point Yacht Club do?)

    The rudders have trim tabs flaps, the hoses you see are go to the cylinder on top of the rudder that operate the flaps

    Transpac mulitis

    Great, they are a great bunch of guys and Jason will be using a sextant the whole trip. Much more comfort than the crews on the tri's, we also got to go on board Comanche and there is no comfort on that boat either.
