Thanks Daryl. That was a big fleet and you showed what the Tiger can do.

Thanks Bob
We had a great race on My Tai. She held up well in the rough stuff and we had max speed of 20.5 in some epic surfs.
Daryl the owner was real happy to be first boat back in all fleets even in front of dragonfly!
We'll post some video soon

Daryl:

Bob, it is my pleasure and honour to sail on the Flying Tiger. The boat is one of the best designed all around race boats and has no weaknesses. Wether we are in light air or heavy weather we are always very competetive. This years Swiftsure was one of the toughest I have been in with very confused seas and winds gusting over 30 Knts. The boat and crew performed beyond expectation. Upwind we can compete with the J 109 and the C&C 115 and when we turn for home, there are very few boats that will keep up with the Tiger going downwind in heavy air.

Congratulations to you Bob for designing one of the best sport boats around.

Daryl Homan
s/v MY-TAI

Gee willikers Daryl, you almost made me cry.
I always thought the boat was good. Wish it had twin rudders though.
I am very glad you have found out how to make the boat go fast in such a wide variety of conditions.

Now can I interest you in a custom 60'er? I could do a Volvo boat. And my name is easy to spell.

The boat went fast every time there was wind, but every detail of every forecast we bought or read online was dead wrong. Despite that I don't think we were disadvantaged by any shifts. At the end of the day, we had to sit through one too many sunset-sunrise deadzone transitions. We went backwards 4 times, anchored once. It was a tough slog.

We're still waiting for a repeat of the 2009 race that was downhill both ways...

Impressed, particularly going to weather in the heavy stuff. What was the sail config/options and # of crew?

We had one reef in the main and our number one jib. We didn't see over 20 knts. going out and we had nine crew on board. Coming back we had our A2 kite and a full main. We dropped our kite about 4 miles from race rocks and reached for the finish line with our number one jib and a reefed main. It was blowing 26 - 33 knts at that time.

Well, I had my first ride on a FT10 this week on a beer can race.
I think I liked it. Beating a same rating J120 was fun.
Not sure how this makes me feel.
Looking for a support group.

They say the first step towards solving your problem is admitting you have a problem.

" Hello my name is Moondance and I have a Tiger problem....."

All together now..... "Hello Moondance.."

Don't worry - it's nothing that a HELOC and a trailer hitch can't solve in a weekend...

To really get the feel of it we need to get the full crew on board and match race with TigerinCT. Maybe as part of the Park City Regatta?

They still dont have some of the features I am accustomed to on a racing yacht.
Humidor
Wine locker
reading lamps and fans in each luxuriously cushioned bunk
flat screen tv
oven (suitbaly sized for an 18 pound turkey
etc
