    What's The Attraction To Sheltered Cockpits?

    This topic should be in cruising anarchy. Have the delivery crew bring the dodger and hook it back up. I have done a lot of racing and deliveries where I wish I could have a dodger,

    Top Speed: What's Your Number?

    13.6 Knots surfing downwind on and S2 9.1 in Marblehead around 1987 after we ripped the first reef and had to double reef before the start. I asked how we were going to take the chute down and my uncle said your going to go up the and pull the pin on the guy. I said I'm not going up there. After burying the bow to the shrouds a few times the chute gave up and it was a bit easier to take down. Going up wind a bit later we hit a wave and stopped, but the mast kept going. Bonus, no sails to fold after we cut the mast with bolt cutters. And 1993 BIRW round the island race on a Tripp 26 factory boat Northern Light reaching round the back of the island hitting probably 18 or so, going by J 44's like they were standing still. Tom Donnelly owned the molds and was with him for the week. I was one of his sponsers to get him into the CPYC in Winthrop and he gave me a great hard covered book about Shackleton"s Endorance. Anyone run into Tom lately? He may be back in Ireland.

    Any info on “Exact” boat builders? (Star Boats)

    I’m pretty sure that the Star of the Sea used to be Duplin’s Boat because Hornos sailed out of the Cottage Park Yacht Club in Winthrop, Ma as well as Sandstrom races there in the 80’s 90’s. Hornos won the Snipe worlds when he was a member there. Now he uses the EYC as his club..

    More than 30 killed off santa cruz island

    I just glanced at the replies and I thought that this had to be a diesel powered boat. Them my neighbor was asking how this could happen. The only thing I can think of with a dive boat there must be a way to refill tanks and oxygen and some spark did it. My 2 cents. Horrible.

    I'd be willing to bet that Shamrock wants the Joust DSQ changed to a DNE.

    These guys in the back of the boat are starting to piss me off.

    no BIRW reports?

    The BIRW Blue fleet race committee has to change the starting time for race 5 around the island because it is screwing up the ToT calculation.
