    Sydney To Hobart 2018

    Keep going south when you reach bird island. Forecast looks good, lots of reaching

    Keel WTF...

    Presumably the benefits of a long keel for directional stability with less drag, higher lift. Looks a reasonable solution for a cruiser.

    New imoca boats

    I doubt the T's would come off if kicked up. They tend to rotate up until they are skimming the surface, yes a bit of load in the transition, but not foil breaking. And if you do lose a T your back to where things are now on that tack. Given the ingenuity of these guys I would not be surprised if they can change one out when doing 30 knots all without a harness on.

    New imoca boats

    Given how close to full foiling they are now, the time has come to allow T's on the rudders. If nothing else it will certainly provide pitch stability and ease the slamming and speed variations.

    Should Carbon Monoxide Alarms Be Mandatory?

    Making regulations is the cheapest action resulting from an inquest. A few lawyers to draft and sign off and its done. In my opinion a better outcome would be a warning sticker included with each registration renewal invoice. But this costs money.

    Dunlop volleys say I am too cool for boat shoes

    Farr 36 - Toy Story

    Raced it in a HCW a few years ago in a M32, took time out of it every down wind, faster upwind as you might imagine. They did a Super 40 regatta with us a few months ago, cant recall seeing it on the course from the ker 40

    Farr 36 - Toy Story

    Slower than a Melges 32 downwind, was a bargain last time it was sold

    CYCA bluewater series

    Great conditions for a race, 18 to 21 knt NNE almost all the way to the island. Westerly hit us about 2 miles short of Flinders, one gust of 36knots when the front came through made for a bit of excitement, Ichi ban went past us going back two sail reaching with the front third of the boat out of the water looking the goods.

    Brisbane to Keppel 2018

    So does the race go through a gate at Keppel and continue on, or straight to hammo? Does this mean that Showtime is the perpetual holder of the most prestigious trophy in Qld yachting 3rd PHS Div 1?
