  2. Then I withdraw my protest so to speak
  3. I stumbled across the front page and was reading an article on the Cape Town to Rio Race when I came across this " The line honors favorite is the 80-foot trimaran Lovewater skippered by Craig Sutherland from Cape Town with Brian Thompson, one the world’s best offshore sailors, also on board." Didn't think much of it until I got to the end and realized it was written by Brian Thompson "one of the worlds best offshore sailors". Well Fan one of the worlds top experts in assessing duechebaggery in article generation says that yes this is clearly high level Delta Bravo territory. That is all.
  4. They got in last night. Great job by the group getting across in one piece and now safely in port

    Sailing in Cabo

    3rd what was said above go check out La Paz. It is an actual yacht harbor with sail boats not a fishing and super yacht harbor. Also some cool places to go close by and anchor snorkel etc.

    Top Speed: What's Your Number?

    Sailed on the Hard Winged Stars and Stripes but not sure what speeds we hit. Top 2 Did 27 driving a RP50 off Cedros Island in 35 plus big swell can't remember if it was a Cabo or a PV. Hit 32 6 years ago driving an STP65 in the biggest squall of our entire Transpac. May have been higher all I remember seeing at one point was 3' of blue water coming over the cabin top and exploding at the pit winches. A ton of mid 20's offshore between J125, RP50, RP78 and RP65.
  9. Disney showed up this past weekend with his newly redone VO 70 here in Southern California. No foils though

    Reach legs in PHRF

    Wasn't me Tom haha I think people like a reaching leg now and then as many people grow tired of the endless W/L. I think I see more and more interest in the random leg courses as they are fun and challenging and maybe just looking for a different aspect of the sport. It also brings out those boats that maybe are scared off by the amount of boat handling involved in W/L and that raises participation.
  12. I guess what everybody is missing is the tracker can be used by race committee, Coast Guard whomever needs it live for safety but there is no reason to have it live to competitors. When someone is in distress you get their lat/long in the mayday. If there is some kind of event during a race that leads to it being necessary the RC can make that call and send the tracker live. "I think far too many people in the sailing world live a life where they're never had a real emergency and therefore are way, way out of touch with the fact that they are using the VHF to report the emergency and give position not an e-mail and the fucking tracker." //fixed it for ya

    suck my balls

    I guess that depends if you believe the first 1/2 of the protest (he) of the second 1/2 (she) or it seems someone is cross identifying
