    Since when you couldn't get them out of the berth except at high tide

    So I hear that industry figures are pressuring CYCA to delay cancelling S2H so that owners have to spend the money to prepare their boats, whether it happens or not. Really no surprise

    Insurance query - how is write-off treated?

    Don't forget that it will cost the insurance company a significant amount to dump the hull if is not commercially viable to fix.

    JPK yachts to be built in Australia

    I am guessing the cost of setting up a whole new brand is many times greater than building existing models under license. Many have tried, few succeed. The GTS boats didn't take off.

    Good luck to them, I hope they succeed, we need more construction in AUS. Good timing, I think, short handed racing is on a role, would be good to have fleets like they do in NZ.

    What is the closest 40’er to a TP52?

    That is/was my Ker40, in reality the GP42's struggle to beat us over the line. the performance curve is very similar to a TP52.

    No one should ever make a race where you have to sail past your home port

    DSS Foil Why did Wild Oats stop using it?

    Kept being taken out by suicidal sunfish

    To Foil or not to Foil, that is the question

    I lost mine once when I fell off in a foiling gybe. There was no way I was going to catch it. Luckily I was rescued before it hit the rocks. For awhile I tried towing a rope behind the boat that I could grab if I lost hold. was ok in strong winds, but drag made it harder to get up on foils in light conditions. I ended up carrying a VHF in my vest
