    Last night the sailing weather was textbook perfect and no threats. Cancelling racing in those conditions is a real head scratcher. Don't start me on the Oxford race...

    Todays Race Boat getting Spanked by old school

    You are wearing me down. How about this. The Farr 400 is a Porsche Cup car. Not street legal built specific for road course racing. Air jacks, cage, dynamic engine mounts. The XP is a Form Mustang 5.0 with the air conditioning removed.

    OK not every race. Farr owes the XP 40+ seconds per mile... so the Farr only beat them by 2 hours and 15 minutes

    This particular XP44 won (not corrected) every race she entered here on the Chesapeake under the former owner as Rival. With a rating of 21 she better scoot.

    The app had it wrong this morning. Actually noted Tenacious first in LH but showed the XP at the dock but listed as still racing... delayed updates on a few boats

    Rating systems aside the fact that the Navy 44 finished ahead of the XP44 is hard to imagine. The XP lead the race start to (almost) finish. With 150 miles to go he had a 20 mile lead in Tenacious. Did he sail into a dead zone and the Navy boat found air? The race site has not updated all boats but shows the XP finished 4th in line honours. How can that be???

    Christian you need to get out more often. Take a peek at the XP polars. That boat will reach at 15 knots with no problem. The Navy 44 is capped at 8 or so reaching. PHRF is 21 for the XP N44 is 81 If I just paid 500K for a well prepared RC (stripped of anything that does not add performance) and a Navy 44 shadowed me for 250 miles (and finished within 20?) I would be very disappointed.
  14. The modern day racers and racer cruisers are designed to get on plane and scoot when conditions dictate. I have been following the Annapolis to Bermuda race (170 miles to go at 16:00EST 6.12) We have a proven rocket XP44 very well prepared being chased 250 miles down the Chesapeake (tacking all the way) by a Navy 44 and a Frers 45 (1990) and they trail the XP by one mile at the bay exit. Light air, mostly up-wind. Now days later they are 300 miles into the ocean and the XP is about 25 miles ahead of the Navy 44.

    J/88

    That is amazing! Good Luck to you all and enjoy the trip! On another note I had a steel cradle built for my J-88. Bought a trailer so I don't have any use for it now. Free to a good (or bad) home. Located Jabins Annapolis
