    Route du Rhum 2018

    Fitting end to an epic battle. He who has a working boat/car normally finishes first.

    Foiling Monohull - what would it look like?

    If you remember the whole story... fouling testing prior to SL33 was done behind a powerboat on a foiling mule, on a random lake...

    i touch myself

    This thread is like fishing for tuna on a long line. seriously fucked up. I’ve never seen major issues on any boat I’ve sailed on, it comes down to the social standards of the individual(s)

    Sydney To Hobart 2018

    They’ve got the early forecast and train to it. How will they pick between the Maxi or the Tri to start with? That’s the big question

    Full Main + HW Jib?

    Reefing @22 knots... add a few lbs to the keel! An aramid/Carbon main should be able to go real flat... tighten the battens and crank the outhaul.
