And a couple from the 2006 Swiftsure Race, out of Victoria, BC. Triple-handed for the event and had a great time blasting back down Juan de Fuca Strait at night, doing a steady 12-14 knots, dodging fishing boats and other competitors, and finishing just before dawn.

Some shots from Hamo Thornycroft in the pre-start for the Royal Southampton 2 handed Round The Island here:-

Mad Dog

Mad Dog 2

More Mad Dog

And one of Pip Hares 'The Potting Shed'

Mad Dog is a home built carbon number, which apprently hadn't been massively tested on a windy race course previously. I'd met the designer/builder/rigger/owner for 5 minutes a while back and we'd never sailed together before. It was also my first real outing on a mini, all in all, almost flawless preparation :ph34r:

It turned out to be awesome - 25ish knots TWS, DFL after beating out the solent before lighting the afterburners downhill and rounding Bembridge with the class 1 winners, having averaged 14 knots round the back and peaking at 19.something. (This may have been airspeed though, as the paddlewheel was rarely in the water) Sure it's all normal for you seasoned mini sailors, but as a newbie - WOW. I'm still grinning 3 days later....

i'd also met the owner not long ago and saw the boat in HYS, the bit i liked was the keel head and purchase lines were in the cockpit out of the interior and it looked awesome

G - Yup, 2005 Van Isle. Port Hardy to Winter Harbour. BAD start but we had a bit of downwind stuff to make up for it. Head a great leg going until we had to go upwind in 20knts all night.

No, you've got it all wrong! It was coffee not tea. Actually, I made the coffee while he drove, then he comfortably sat on the rail after I gave him his coffee and he enjoyed the "wonderful" evening while I drove. It was like a luxurious, fully catered, pleasure cruise for him.

Any details on this particular rescue? Curious why the lifeboat was called, even though conditions were clearly nasty. Boat appeared to be intact other than the rig, so in no immediate danger of sinking. Was it a lee shore thing? Hazard to navigation? Looks like the boat was abandoned, since towing would have been impossible in that weather. What was the skipper doing out there in the first place? Thanks for posting. Good to be reminded that things can, indeed, go terribly pear-shaped out there.

A scow is just another type of hull.

I dunno man. I don't think it's a Scow or a Mini 650. I am pretty sure it is a Topper...
