Any reason why only Divisions 3 and 6 have results from last night?

J, does Belgium really have much of 'the best beer on the planet?'


In Topic: Flying with wet sailing gear?

04 August 2014 - 04:00 PM

My 16 yo son will be flying to an out-of-state regatta. This is new territory for us. The ideal goal would be to not have to check any baggage, with a carry-on containing sailing gear stowed in an overhead bin and regular clothing and personal items in a laptop bag that can be stowed under a seat.


We can fit boots, wet suit, pfd, harness, spray top and pants and small items into a 50L dry sack, but I am not sure that size is okay for a carry on. The dry sack has no pockets of any kind, but it does have backpack straps. It would work okay for hauling gear back and forth from host family's home and sailing club and possibly for flying the wet gear home, but after the regatta, I don't think it would be practical for daily use.


The gear would also fit in a 21" carry-on - barely, but we would still need a very compressible bag to haul gear back and forth to the venue.


Also, I have no clue as to what airport security thinks of sailing harnesses coming through as a carry on, but I pity any agent opening the bag with the boots in it.


He's a first-generation sailor, so we would really appreciate any advice you can give on managing the gear.  Is it just better to check the gear?

It's mostly likely $50 round trip.  Check the bag and be done with it.

Looks fun out in Montauk right about now.


They got there fairly quick... at least the current will be with them soon.

I bet the fast boats are counting down the minutes.  The slower boats, not so much.
