In Topic: Seahorse

17 April 2017 - 01:30 AM

Seahorse has been and continues to be the most dynamic sailing magazine ever. Amazing photography and great articles. The two year deal that includes a $60 shirt is obviously the way to go for real sailing enthusiasts. Add THAT* to your birthday/anniversary/Mother's Day/Father's Day MUST HAVE list...

 

I agree 100%!  I didnt know that a shirt was included.  I got it in the mail and was simply amazed. ~$100 for 2 years, which is $50 less than i usually pay plus a nice shirt?  Not to mention the best magazine for racing sailors...wow  the best deal Ive had in a long time..keep up the great work Seahorse!!

In Topic: Shoes for big boat racing

cant beat gum rubber soles on slippery boats.  Top siders work well for me. Vans are $50 and comparable w/gum rubber soles.  soles might be a bit thick. need to be broken in.  the breathable shoes let water and air in, might be an issue for long duration sailing or cold water and/or cold wind.  top siders have the bases covered here.

Duct tape.  comes in multiple colors incl. fluorescent, can be relocated.  for a permanent solution its tuff to beat whipping in black or white
