    What are they hiding?

    Just watched the clip from Sodebo and some blurring by the jumbo caught my eye. What info are they hiding?

    Comanche sold again?

    Never heard of 'Salty Dingo' before, but this came up in my facebook feed. Both Comanche and Black Jack (apparently) heading to Europe (wonder if that includes Pommy Island ).

    Blooper dimensions

    Searching through the current rule texts, there is nothing I have been able to find that prohibits bloopers (explicitly or otherwise). In my opinion it will be set 'inside' of kite sheets, over or under the sheet is a different discussion...

    Sydney to Hobart 2019

    'Big night out , they probably should not have sent us, gale force winds were a lot stronger than forecast ' RRS 4- Decision to race... Respect to those who found it prudent to remain ashore. I'm sure a night on the piss (even at sydney prices) is probably still cheaper than some of the repair bills..

    Ouch.... Not sure if it's just the photo, but the mast seems to be on more of an angle than the deck.

    Whatever happened to triangles?

    Ja And now have my own boat (1/4 tonner), that I want to do more than just w/l racing in

    Blooper dimensions

    Due to various reasons, I'm currently just looking at a blooper for my 1/4 tonner as a theoretical exercise. In NL the racing is done under ORC, so playing around with ideas/design to fit that. The ORC rule text appears to prevent a blooper-like sail; 208.2Headsails set flying may be tacked: b)between the forestay (included) and the mast, when i)it shall have HLP<= 1.1*J ii)it shall be tacked inside any spinnaker sheet For my rough design, haven't checked area against max HSA, but have already got the LP within the limit of the rule, which leaves us with what is considered 'tacked inside spinnaker sheet'.

    Whatever happened to triangles?

    How is it dangerous 'forcing' boats to reach? Basically you show a lack of balls and talent that only enables you to VMG run once you round the top mark... I guess you don't any coastal racing in case there may be reaching involved..

    Whatever happened to triangles?

    Whatever happend to triangles in short course racing,, ie triangle-hotdog (beat-reach-reach-beat-run beat)? After enough years of it (even with breaks), doing only w/l just don't appeal to me.. bringing back the reaching legs of triangle would be a small improvement, and may even change up the results as there may be okay boats that aren't totally suited to just vmg up & down & vice versa challenging the boats the may not like the reaching. Only real place I have found interesting to sail in the last handful of years is the solent. Even without the tide flows there, they have marks all over the place to use and do mix it up a bit between w/l & round the cans.. Sydney Harbour has similar possibilities, but seem to just send the IRC fleets outside the heads to bash about on w/l's..
