    Favourite Boat pic?

    A monkey with a bone!
  2. That's a ketch unless the rudder post is part of the keel. A yawl has its mizzen behind the rudder post and vice versa for a ketch Any update on why they abandoned ship. I guess the guys on the vendee would have dismissed conditions as being bracing!

    J105 IRC

    Inshore and offshore fully crewed but might do some double handed when crew not all available, Any thoughts on code zero especially for offshore work

    Help with TCF improvement Beneteau 31.7

    Very difficult boat to sail to its rating unless its very windy.

    they both suck?

    Looks like 3695 approached on starboard and has broached 3496 on port is about to broach who's overtaking? Loss of control not an excuse when you break a rule so more info needed

    CORA Flag

    Hmm Red white and blue with stars Reminds me of the union flag Old Glory Seriously though no women allowed as members in other clubs, are they still in the stone age?

    How About Some Spring Lines

    Springs by two breast lines by two at a minimum Bit windy round here , if you tie your lines wrongly you end up with matchwood or its plastic equivalent Also I was once glued to a dock by a 30knot breeze and for some reason decided to go racing, a bow spring and a burst of throttle and we were off! Wish I'd stayed ashore though

    Tips For Being Rescued

    Shit If i was rescued in those conditions I'd be so embarrassed I'd hide anywhere I could. Sounds like it was a nice day (night) for a laser to be out sailing! I hope USCG sends him a humungous bill for wasting their time and putting crew at risk.

    Robotic Marks

    I looked at these last year and thought it was a brilliant idea until I saw the price. Is probably acceptable for a superyacht regatta but for club racing it's a complete disaster. Our annual budget wouldn't cover two of them and what do you get for the monthly fee?

    Boats for Big Chaps

    i'm a bit older than the op (pushing 60) and have back and knee trouble but I can still manage my Laser in most conditions. I also sail a GP14 which is much easier on the body and still pretty good fun. There are dozens of two handers out there and id say it would be well worth your while to investgate them, you might even find a pretty girl to sail with!
