Michigan / Great lakes Double Handed Classes?

29 December 2016 - 06:32 PM

hi all,


we might be making the move to the midwest-- what are the best doublehanded classes at the moment? bonus points for something i can day sail w/ my kids, and race regionally.  something like the equivalent of the mercury class in california (ie bang for the buck and decent competition...)


im aware of the scow scene in WI / MN, more curious what people are sailing in chicago / mich / cleveland... is there still a v15 class in chicago at all? is there a great lakes snipe or thistle racing scene? etc




Used Small Powerboat Recommendations

will probably go to the dark side in a couple years-- what brands do yall like in something versatile (light fishing / water skiing / cruising) that is under 8k lbs (ie w/ trailer it would still be under my car's 10k tow limit).  will likely look for used for something 8-15 years old.... want to start saving now, so trying to figure out how much something in good shape will cost.


i am quite familiar w/ Tiaras and Whalers, and like them both.

San Francisco-- The Cow Palace

what is the deal w/ this dump? SF, world class city should not have such a dump of an arena.  The Chase center will be operational in a few years, but regardless, SF or whoever controls the dump Cow Palace needs to get this place fixed up ASAP
