    Vendee Globe 2020

    Thanks! It really enlivens the coverage and would probably have great safety benefits. One to think about for future editions

    Loving it - how many more boats running public dashboards? Did I miss a post full of links?

    Syd-Hobart Yachts, Where are they Now?

    1) Syd Fischer at the best of times was an underinvestor 2) These are the worst of times, plus Syd must be close to shuffling off this mortal coil, he's in his 90s and probably suffers from dementia. I'm thinking a Viking burial is the right outcome on all sides - when the time's right, of course.

    Comanche sold again?

    I sailed with and against him quite a bit the late 70s and early 80s. Nice guy and pretty sharp on a boat.

    If you need to ask you don't need to know

    Owner otherwise engaged as I understand it, sorta lost the passion for racing plus was busy doing plastic surgery in Thailand. Has had minimal use over the last 10+ years so at one level a good buy.

    As a 25 year CYCA member I’m appalled.

    Sydney coach

    Once upon a time 34 was a good mid size for offshore. Age has caught up with you Jason!!

    Sydney coach

    Brett's awesome, I've used him but tends to be dinghy focused AFAIK. Not sure whether he does much on offshore keelboats. Stuart Broom, Steve McConaghy are both excellent. Stu more on boat and crew organising, trimming and moves, Steve that plus more out of the boat on-water stuff. And ask around the yacht clubs who the various owners use.

    Working Capital isn't an issue for the owner.
