    Stack pack or not?

    Use lazy jacks. Have line with Brummell hooks under boom where jacks attach. When club/shorthand racing can detach and move jacks forward to mast or remove entirely when fully crewed. Incidentally boat is J44.

  8. Sadly, as the diversity of performance characteristics broadens and the number of participants decreases it appears that the sport as we know it will continue to contract neither new rating systems nor race management techniques like grouping by characteristic can do much more than delay. Maybe shifting the focus to the pleasure and joy of sailing to attract and increase participation should be the focus.
