Here's what the boat looks like on a start line



The sail numbers are clearly seen.


^THIS, how simple is that?  And WE require club assigned bow numbers too.

In Topic: J-24, Merit 25, Capri 25, what's fastest?

The Capri will crush the other 2 in light air, sailed properly.  As soon as it's over say 8-10 knots true, the J will lead until things start to really heat up.  Then its the Merit.


IF there is any wave action at all, the Capri will be dead last.


Or you can buy an S2 7.9 and crush them all (same rating).


Oh and you run your halyards back to the cockpit, so no reason to go forward, except to change headsails, which you should do often on the Capri 25 (masthead).

Holy crap I can't believe this dumas went BACK OUT! this thread grew to epic proportions, and I figured it was the endless speculators about his next trip, I had NO idea the guy got out again, and made landfall again.  You KNOW it's a matter of days before he sets out again.  Nobody is keeping this guy down.


I'll chip into the fund to track him!  Who is setting it up?

Oh, prior boat (when purchased) was "Happy Flapper."  Yeah trailer hadn't even left an impression on the front lawn before THAT was sanded off.
