    Did you really catch Ken Read coming out of a student’s dorm one morning?

    Dubarry Ultimate Boots Beware !

    Purchased mine in the spring of 2010 and have put them through hard hard use since then. It became official this october: I pulled my right foot out and the sock was soaking wet - while the left side foot was bone dry. Guess they're starting to go. I went around with Dubarry this spring trying to see if they would resole them once the sole started to go and they refused to even try - or give me the discount that others in this thread have received. Since it seems to be a fabric issue, I'm going to look into the Gore-Tex warrantee and see if maybe there's something to be gained there. Otherwise it'll probably be another $400 of my money going to Dub because the Zhiks one make my feet sweat and the HPX ones wear out way too fast.

    What was the pile up at the boat all about at the second GR?

    I loved Dawn Riley getting on and taking the piss out of them following the Today Show interview.

    Which Smock to buy

    What the fuck were you doing on a boat that you killed a smock in 13 days? Breakdancing in the cockpit?

    Don't forget breakages in the the top end of the fleet. Plus if it's a big boat year, they could be closer for the overall by virtue of sailing to a better handicap.

    I'm impressed that the humans didn't eat the dogs after 5 months.

    Formerly serial charterers of the first RP75 Bella Mente, with many Volvo regulars on the boat, taking a pass at breaking some records in the states and on the lakes. You can be sure that the recent Chicago mackinaw record was motivated by this beast coming to the states in the hands of an owner who grew up racing on IOR boats in and around the lakes and wanting to get one in before wizard comes and smashes it.

    You must be talking about the below-average sailor. Because anyone racing a boat with non overlapping headsails who ISN'T proficient at inhaulers will be shot out the back of the pack every time, without exception. Perfect tactics or not.
