    Good Post-College Boat?

    Brent, does the asym lift the bow at all downwind? I used to own #69, Navy Blue hull, and it did like to nosedive in bigger breezes downwind, even with every pound of hiking flesh as far back as possible.

    Route du Rhum 2018

    Gabart looks like someone squirted out a melon seed!

    Route du Rhum 2018

    Gabart still has to sail on starboard tack to the finish with the underwhelming representation of a rudder. Maybe he'll steer with sail trim, ... might be a window for Joyon.

    Scott, after smoking'em, and what do you like about the FT10 vs say the M32 you had for a spell?

    Looks like Flo's remnants have a 20% chance to return to tropical structure in 48 hrs. and head back towards the SE US coast.

    Flo has some Balrog tailwhip left in her. We had 3.6” of rain in 6 hrs early this morning and flash floods popping up all over.

    Damn..... they don’t make weather stations like they used to,… But seriously all the reports coming out of Wilmington are very significant regarding tree damage and power outages. The River flooded More yesterday than either for Floyd or hazel and their highest recorded wind speed since 1958. Thank God it was only a category one.

    Tour de France - 2018

    Tomorrow is going to be a mtn sprint, without the miles and miles of flats to wear down solo or teamless riders. There should be some clarification of positions afterwards and before the ITT.

    Anarchist Hacks

    Along the same lines, stop using shaving cream from the same companies that make the blades. My guess is they put acid in the shaving cream because I can use a blade for 2-3 weeks just with hot water.

    what was it?

    I'll go with the Florida environs and call it a MORC napkin boat from Paul Lindenberg and Lars Bergstrom.

    Asheville, NC

    Eat at Salsa's downtown for Mexican Caribbean magic by Hector. There are a ton of craft brew joints but make sure you visit Sierra Nevada's location there on your way to Brevard for the superb craftmanship in their building and layout. Make sure you head up hiway 276 to Looking Glass Falls on your way up to the parkway for hiking at Graveyard Fields, Black Balsam, and Yellow Gap Wilderness. Tons of Mtn Bike trails there in Pisgah, and over at Dupont. Rick
