    Santa Cruz 70 - Fleet Roll Call

    Some would (headstay, runners, mast jack) others not so much (jib sheet, vang, non-existent perm backstay)

    Demise of Red Foulies

    All of the manufacturer seem to have good and bad spells. It does help to look at the details and fit before buying. I have a complete mishmash of gear colors/ brands and couldn't care less. Just wanna stay warm and dry when I'm wearing it. This is racing not New York fashion week.

    SDYC Hot Rum 2020

    Dude, we won the sb-king harbor race overall like 2 years ago on scots ft10!
  8. Fucking auto correct... Double double > big mac
  9. Yup, ensign on the pole at transom with a burger on the spreader. We alternate between an american flag, bear republic (cali state flag), couple signal pennants, and a random flamingo driving a pickup truck flag on the flag pole off the front of the house (which I fashioned from a batten from windward passage). Like to cover all bases. Nothing wrong with being proud to be an american. I have raced for my country. It isn't perfect, but neither am I. Rtb, how are you man? It's been a very long time! Still in I de hoe? Shoot me a pm and we can commiserate on the idiocracy of our dads...

    Experiences with Quantum membrane skins?

    The lite skins absolutely seem to add longevity, but at a weight and performance penalty. Sorry there is no free lunch!

    Jib (on furler) area rule-of-thumb

    Have a 142 and a 108. Use the 108 almost exclusively. A lot depends on track locations. Also, for a dedicated offshore sail, clew height is important. Talk through use case with your sailmaker

    That's not sailing...

    At the other end of the spectrum, does stored power in model yachting mean it is not sailing?

    what is it?

    Totally disagree. She looks like a much more wholesome boat. Sure, not as radical, but practical and purposeful.

    Newbie sailor. What's my next move?

    Charter the 17 from a fellow anarchist. Maybe even rent to own. Write up a co tract that fits both parties and make sure insurance is included. Maybe even have the newb join as crew on the keel boat for beer can races. Win-win

    MEXORC 2020 - START AND STOP

    Yep, was to leeward and just behind when this start went pear shaped. It was one of those,"this is gonna be fucked up starts" at the 2 min mark. Like a 35 mile race so we just went full conservative and found clean lanes pretty quick. The poor dudes from this video did an even bigger cock up the next day, but it probably wont be on video

    Pearson 33-2

    My best friend owns one. I have raced beercans onboard and done a ton of buddy boat cruising from our boat (cal 34) with them alongside on the water and at anchor. It's an alright boat. Sails pretty good. Big main, kinda short j dimension. Very shallow bilge, so water on sole is an issue. The interior is ok, but the table takes up a lot of room, so the v berth is kinda small. They are not big people, so that's ok for them. Let me know if you have any specific questions. If I dont know, I can ask him

    Sweetest sailing old plastic?

    I was patient and waited for one that someone had already spent cash on the expensive shit. Honestly figured it to be a few years boat for us and then move up. We are still smitten with her! Really fits our needs well in a tidy package. Hell, we lived aboard (wife, me, 2 kids, and a dog) for 9 weeks this year while in between houses! She is headed to the yard later this month for a full paint job. Figure she deserves it for her 50th birthday this year...
