Round the County is always a great time and a great sail.

Rage is still great. Not quite as OP as she used to be. Very fun to sail, far simpler than most sleds. Went to Tahiti in 2012 along with Beau Geste '80.

Bieker Riptide 35 MK II


The Riptide 35s (both old and new) have gone to Hawaii many times now with 4 on board, and go fast enough to pass most 50+ footers on all points of sail. We have two of them around here and they are always crushing just about everything that moves.


Not cheap but the water in the Bieker 35, or the keel on the 35ss, make up for some of the bodies needed, so you can stand watch with 1-2 up.

Congrats to the Melges 24s and even the J-29 guys who didn't do too poorly. I am sure a drink was had at the Pink Pony. Guess no one died!

Based on this, can you imagine the chatter that must have happened when the first Moore 24,  SC27, or Olson 30 went to Hawaii back in the 70s? The horror!
