    I'm too thick to follow this 100%. We need specific terms for 3 axes plus elevation now. We should never have used "height" to mean heading relative to wind direction. http://youtu.be/rYFQZFL0yoo

    WRYC does do a good regatta. Hobie left out the important part, WRYC has a kitchen cooking hot breakfast and lunch items. No donut and half a banana breakfast at this one. Portsmouth fleet too, bring your freaks and orphans.

    Salvage advise appreciated

    Plant some drugs in it then buy it at auction after local drugs enforcement takes it to impound facility.

    Headlamps

    I wear one at work most of the day and have owned dozens. Black Diamond Icon is my favorite but is over $100 with charging gear. Been buying the $25 GRDE ones from Amazon lately. https://www.amazon.com/GRDE-Zoomable-Headlamp-Rechargeable-Batteries/dp/B00NIOCZIK Comes with A123 cells and a variety of charging thingies. They sell a few slightly different models that all seem ok. The elastic dies a little too fast. In general, features that are important to me- 3rd strap on top so you can put it on with one hand and to keep it from ending up qhanging around your neck. Battery pack on rear for balance. No shitty AAA cells, AA or A123. Great for work or camping. Dont wear on deck.

    You're definitely too heavy for the Hobie 14 even without camping gear.

    CL 16 Wayfarer copy water ballast boat?

    No. It implies that there is more hull volume sealed that can act as flotation than a boat that is single hulled, generally speaking.

    Estimating Sailing Time?

    https://nautos-usa.com Edit- have used a trapeze cleat with 1:1 or 2:1 before. For daysailing the main thing you need is to be able to ease it under load.

    The fine balance of Family and Sailing

    I sail a variety of single-handers and then carry the bags for my wife at the mall and buy her wood-fired pizza too often. #balance
