    excellent video as always, Blur. Great job. Does your helm massively load up when you are on the cusp of applying the power? Jem

    Do any of you folks sail the 111 against J-122's, and how do you generally match up? J

    newbie bowman tips

    Move to the back of the boat as fast as you can, more money to be made watching the hard workers.... As for going out on the pole, you shouldnt have to.... Be organised! indeed. given that this was 2006, there should be fresh meat up the pointy end by now... J

    newbie bowman tips

    Been following that thread too, Misthos. Sometimes there is yelling from the back of the boat. It sometimes consists of "What's going on up there?", or some such nonsense while you are up to your chest in water on the leeward side trying to unfuck something. If you feel you have to respond, here are a couple that are kinda fun: Sarcastically -- "Gee whiz, I'm not really sure, why don't you guys come on up and take a look". or "I'm fucking this chicken, you guys just sit back and watch the feathers fly." RD Since I am an apprentice bowman and just completed this whole thread, I found this advice invaluable. I can't wait to wear my harness while fucking the owners daughter, wife, sister and secretary. Sounds like you guys and few gals are crazy mofo's. Should be a good summer! how was your summer L8R?

    if you're referring to the pop-up cleats, so do we. Having said that, I'm sure that someone will leave their knackers behind on gybe when they sit on one and release it - so we'll probably have to stick them down anyway. The more weight at the back the better, me thinks...
