    Needing good shoes

    I had a pair of Zhiks and loved them. super grippy and lightweight. I didn't find them terribly durable so I switched over the Adidas. Still very good, but the fit isn't as glove like as the Zhiks as the Adidas so I don't feel as stable on the bow. Next pair will likely be the Zhiks (in retrospect, the durability is fine...I'm just tough on shoes.

    Douses on a 105

    They work well in a blow but the problem is that the tack always ends up under the kite making the next hoist really require a full running the the tapes. much easier, if the wind and skipper allows, to windward strip and end up with a cleaner chute in the forepeak ready to hoist.

    Favorite Era

    between the 1983 Connor loss and the 1987 Connor win was the best period, IMO. Three 12 meter world championships in between the two challenges, as I recall. just felt like a pretty awesome time to be an America's Cup fan.

    Anchoring a Sprit Boat

    The boat I sail on has a detachable anchor roller on the port side so it never gets too near the sprit.
  14. Mudheads/ECSA has a somewhat revived MORC 30 class for some of its events.

    J/120 offshore cruiser

    raced many years on one, mostly on bow. Don't recall seeing any water ingress at all at the sprit.
