  1. If someone wants to donate money to me and my crew to rip beers and drink rum until we fall over send a PM. Anything helps. God Bless

    Jib cleats on j24

    If the cabin top winches are installed you could rig something to them. Other suggestion would be to go sailing and figure out where the sheets land while you're cruising comfortably and just install them there.

    Used J/22 Mast

    Have you tried posting on the J22 Class website? It's not wildly popular, but people in the know tend to check it every now and then.

    NYYC Invitational IC37

    This is what the sport needs- free access to easy streaming. Props to everyone involved in getting it to my desk so I can properly slack off.
  5. +1 The Ceasar is the Gold Standard for hangover drinks. Requires actual celery salt rimmer, though.

    Annapolis Racing- Looking for Tips & Tricks

    Sailed there last September...just as hurricane Florence was coming in. Apparently that made shit a little fucked. Great racing, though. Met some dude at the Boatyard who was firing off some tips, but me and the boys were already getting after it, so it's a bit fuzzy. If all else fails win the boat and go left

    J22 Cruiser....

    They're out there, but I'm sure you've seen that the vast majority are set up for OD racing. Best bet is to find one that hasn't been raced aggressively and add the equipment that you want...or find 2 people and come racing.

    Anyone have news from the 300? Seeing Flight Simulator RTD with "crew safely aboard USCG vessel"??

    J Class Weight limits

    You're right about that, but I feel like this is amplified because it's a planing boat with an asym and you want it to pop up quickly. A different example would be the J22- add an extra 100 pounds to hike the boat flat in breeze and holding a lane becomes much easier. Downwind they just pop into the cabin and the extra effect of the weight is diminished. I don't want to leave friends at the dock, but I also hate the idea of serious competitors manipulating the rules (or lack of) to blow me even further out of the water. Can't speak to the larger J boats!

    J Class Weight limits

    This seems like the most reasonable approach. A few years ago we ran hills wrapped in garbage bags to sweat out the last 5 pounds for a national champs. We're young and it was for a bigger event, so we were fine to do it, but if they were enforcing it for a fleet of 8 I would have bounced.
