    VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Very interesting, is there more detail on this anywhere?

    downwind boat speed

    Carefull not to ‘barn door’ the sail, you need a sail shape, ie a little roundness, not completely flat

    Crew commentary from the Clipper race

    I'm sure I can get better reactions than I have already, I'm disappointed really In the meantime I'll continue to troll thru the Clipper site, and try to find some interesting posts to enlighten the cynical.

  7. Anyone else find the race commentary from the Clipper race very bland and dull? Well dive into the crew posts for some more interesting stuff, here is a post from a novice describing a kite drop, made me laugh https://www.clipperroundtheworld.com/crew-diary/unicef/race-2-day-3-punta-del-este-to-cape-town6 there must be some more that are a good read.

    BJ Porter, I have a couple of moorings that you are welcome to use during the week, and you wont be thrown off in the middle of the night, one in Towlers bay and one in the basin. We regularly tie up 3 * 50 ft yachts, so would hold your boat without an issue; and only really use them on the weekends. Will contact you on your blogsite Rgds
