  1. Doesn't make much difference if the regattas that matter are supplied boat.
  2. The 2020/2021 Olympic fleet will be sold off maybe sooner rather than later. If the Olympics are cancelled, I guess it is just as well that the Odaiba Marina project was cancelled.

    One hundred feet of gravel with a 225 pound boat boat on a dolly? You might want to keep the van and trailer.

    OLympics.....Just vaccinate all the athletes

    The sailing spectator area at Kamakura was actually downsized due to tsunami evacuation concerns.

    Looks like I was wrong, and it's off.

    In Tokyo, there just isn't all that much that was built for the Olympics. It's many of the same venues as 1964, including the sailing.

    Well, Kamakura in August is likely to be a drifter.

    That doesn't matter so much because hotel occupancy is so high in Tokyo in any case. The real point from the prestige point of view was making Tokyo relevant again after the lost decade(s). If there are empty seats to be filled, school kids will be sent to fill them like any other international sports event in Japan.

    I think the Tokyo Olympic Committee is determined to go ahead. The testing upon landing at NRT and HND are part of this program. The test events have gone off without a hitch. The ethics of jocks getting the vaccine ahead of others is an ethical issue, of course. Regardless, the Olympics are on no matter what as per TOC.

    Dean is American and Jimmy Italian??

    Yeah, my best day on the ice was as least as good as my best day on the water.
  11. The CBSA does seem to sometimes just make it up as they go along, such as with the folding knife ban.

    As I understand it, my ancient Laser could have wooden blades and still be class legal. I am interested.

    Why did J Boats drop the J100?

    The overall question becomes, were the J100 molds destroyed or not?
