    18-19 ski season

    Just curious if anyone is using the Epic or Ikon Pass? We switched from Epic to Ikon this year and it has been great. If you are interested in an IKON pass for next year, our group has discount codes for $30 off for new pass holders. All transactions go directly thru IKON using the discount code. The price for all passes will go up $100 in 2 weeks. It will probably go up more over the summer. You can pay by installment plan also thru the website also PM me if you are interested. BD

    Garmin Video Cable to PC

    I have a Garmin chartplotter with a video port. Can I hook up a PC to output to the chartplotter? Here is the cable. https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/13395

    Why, if it perceived as a dog, it will stymie sales? If I were J boats I would have Jimmy Spithill sailing it this weekend. I have never seen 1 race result change a PHRF rating.

    You got any numbers for a J122 for that chart? Just wondering what the Plane is?

    J/111 Goes Sailing...

    We race against one this weekend in a Pursit race. They made up their handicap time in the first 5 miles upwind in a 28 mile course against the whole class. They even overstood the mark and still managed to catch everone. What does that tell you? It tells me Bear Hovey was probably sailing with them And that is against one that was smashed on rocks the day before and keel wasn't in optimum shape upwind. I know what you are thinking! Nice show you put on in front of us..did kite survive? espo, bear wouldn't last a day on that boat The kite is OK,..... Yea crooked keel, overstands the mark and still makes up their handicap in no time. Time to trade my boat.........

    I would love to see them put the J122's in with them.

    What were the wind speeds?

    J/111 Goes Sailing...

    Seriously? It will be just six seconds a mile slower than the J/122?? A couple feet shorter but a lot lighter with a better SA/DSPL ration I suppose. Hmmmm, very interesting... They raced in the Around Jametown race yesterday. The rating was 42. Looks like Jeff J. was driving. Sorry no pics, did not have my camera. The wind was around 20 most of the day. http://www.conanicut...0%20Results.pdf Interesting numbers: the 111 rates higher than a 40.7 which is usually about 1.070 in IRC (or thereabouts). The 111's elapsed time of 2:29:04 was not far off the J44's (6mins) nor the IMX 45's (3mins), and they're both heavy boats which do well in a blow so this thing is fast, non? It corrected out 27th overall and better than all the big boats including a Swan 42. I'll assume the 111 was well sailed given who some said were aboard. But that's heavy air, I'd hate to go against a 40.7 in a whispy 5 knots with a crappy tidal chop against me, when the 40.7 has a 155% genny up... The most interesting thing is the 111 vs Summit 35 handicaps - if only that boat was out there. I also think 7.8kts is fast, the Farr/Corel 45 I sail on with meticulously maintained instruments goes upwind at 7.8 in 12/13 kts and up. That's pretty much out top speed, only footing do we get up to 8kts. The fastest J we race against is a 133 and the F45 generally pisses all over those, they're not even in the same start. Interesting claims. I think the instruments were over-reading... I still love it that the J35, a boat I have lots of positive experiences on, rates faster than a 36.7, a nice cruiser but 10+ years newer. I also love that a B32 and a Swan 44 on the same rating can sail within 20 seconds of each other over 2.5 hours. How cool is that? Handicap is never great sailing but that's a positive story. One thing to remember. The race had no downwind leg. Started upwind, turned the corner at the bottom then up the backside on tight reach, wind backed, turned to a tight broad reach. Turned then at the top of the island and it was a 1 legged beat to the finish. I am not sure if the 111 ever put up a chute the whole day.
