    Best Genny Sheets

    Swiftcord doesn't have a core, it bends tighter than almost anything out there. That doesn't sound like what you have. This is important to note because I bet you would love something like it for jib sheets - Alpha Ropes SSR would be my choice.

    As is tradition. I'm going to point and laugh if they even put it on the calendar next year.

    You don't tie those middle ones around the boom at all, unless you feel like buying a new sail.

    Most T-10s will have halyards that you can jump. You can and should adjust the shrouds when breeze picks up or lays down, even during races.

    Spinlock XT cam wear

    I'd rather have the jib up faster and buy new cams every few years.

    Spinlock XT cam wear

    These are consumables, better to wear them out than for the jib halyard to drop six inches after hoist because it wasn't closed.

    Velcro Or Slide on Main Clew?

    Velcro, no buckle or anything needed. Wrapped around multiple times like Parma said.

    Insurance process advice please

    Your friend's insurer should send someone out to look in person.

    Haven't been around Monroe in a few days, but that 36.7 could be the Commodore's. Reserved docking at Monroe is a privilege of that post.

    It's not going to feel good to win a regatta based on something like this, so I don't blame their competitors for being unhappy. Agreed, but given the ruling I have to assume that such facts were found. You want to know the easiest way to avoid all of the acrimony and bad blood being created in the first place? Not breaking the fucking rules in the first place. This particular rule seems pretty easy to not break.
