    The Lindenberg 26 is a great boat. Pretty indestructible B&R rig

    Great racing guys! Thanks again to the scorers for your diligence. I had to let waypoints bring me into the finish for the last 4-5 hours so Mom and Turtle slipped by,, oh well, a 105 mile coastal race finished in 8h 42m on a Melges 32 was worth it. Maybe we can do this again for the Vendee?

    Really glad this leg is going to be quick. I'm due to step on a boat at 1030 tomorrow morning for a 100mi coastal dash. Melges 32 and the forecast is for 12-18 at 135TWA. Big grins

    I think VOR is trying to fit the course and the forecast to arrange a timely arrival for the sponsors et al.? my zezo page isn't showing a starting line in Gothenburg. Any reason why

    grrr, zezo kept telling me to go east yesterday while everyone was bearing off hard. Couldn't understand why but then noticed routing was only set for a one day projection. gave away a good 5-6 miles

    “Knot” a cool pun: worst boat names ever

    then there's the tip to Seinfeld, "Sloop Naut-Sea"

    Positioning winches and clutches

    Get a Counter Clockwise winch and your OCD problems go away, of course other problems might crop up
