    Dirt contractor. Sailed the Shack boat for 3 years, once with Hobie Jr, and I think Bill Newton did a couple with him. '79, '80 and '81 I think. Precisely.

    Chris Worrell was my next door neighbor, my step father did three in a row. I've seen it first hand. I'm not bagging on it at all, so don't misunderstand, wish everyone the best and will be cheering them on. Just pining for the old days. And I would probably get off the couch if they went straight through again, even though I'm way too old to even contemplate.

    I know you have to do your job and say that, but they don't matter now for this race. Get a few guys with friends that drive the vans, go to Lauderdale, and take off. See who gets here first. That's how it was.

    My question is when are you guys gonna run it straight through from Ft Lauderdale to Virginia Beach like the old days and get rid of this overnight stop stuff.

    Yes, they do the best job I've seen so far. And you're right, as I mentioned it's not perfect, but a step in the right direction. They happen to make a lot of merino tops too, which sounds up your alley. I like their merino for spring, but way too hot for summer for me. Their Climbers jersey is pretty cool wearing though. Best hot weather I have found is Assos Equipe RS in white. That's what I wore riding through the desert in Dubai.

    No, I'm not saying that at all. With regards to sailing gear there is a wide range of needs as I listed. What you wear buoy racing is different than offshore sailing is different than dingy sailing. They all take different specific kit. My response to him was a completely different conversation about cycling gear. Though I wear my Assos 1/3 base layer under a Patagonia capilene long sleeve for super hot conditions buoy racing, works phenomenally.

    This is a legitimate concern, and wool has certainly been better in this regard. But a lot of companies are starting to bring recycling into their manufacturing process. Isadore in particular does a really good job of this in cycling. There is a still a cost to recycling, but it makes it a lot more palatable. But I'm telling you poly doesn't have to stink. I've got 5+ year old pieces of Assos kit and they don't smell whatsoever. And on a hard and fast day in 90 degree heat with 90 percent humidity, wool would literally suffocate you on top of sagging like a bitch. There is no comparison.

    I'm sorry you have uncontrollable B.O. and no washing machine.

    Indeed. Material is only one part of the equation as well. Cut and fit equally as important. And sailing has several different usage profiles, from dingy sailing to inshore sailboats to offshore passage making.
