  3. Simply insane conditions on day 3! Those have to be the biggest swell I have ever seen a dingy sailor sail in!
  4. nice to see the US team doing well at the 49er champs at Cascais. https://www.cncascais.com/index.php?option=com_rib&view=item&id=1267&catid=2&Itemid=157&lang=pt#results

  6. this is one of the submissions for the "mixed" slot in the 2024 Olympics. Rather curious... A Mixed Team Racing event in the ILCA 6! https://www.sailing.org/90929.php https://www.sailing.org/news/90924.php?fbclid=IwAR102_zBU4_sMVlA1HGt7U5_I5EI8f5g8wtH4C9LqXrfN-WEFQotC4lPQkc#.YIyfsbVKg2z
  7. Hope this helps, rigging a 505 sounds like a daunting task! https://www.int505.org/about-the-505/resources-for-sailors/setup-tuning-introduction/ https://usa505.org/library/rigging-and-project-archive/rigging-a-bare-hull-505-usa-9042-rondar/
  8. The F50s has reached something like 52 or 53 knots.

  10. My little siblings "dry sailing" the Fireball. I know I know, their sail trim isn't the best, but don't hold it against them
  11. It seems the F50s are started to rival the AC75s. I saw consistent speeds of 30+kts upwind, sometimes reaching even 35kts. Plus speeds of over 50 kts downwind! The boats were just ripping! In my opinion that racing was much more exciting than the Americas Cup. Even if the AC boats are going faster, the F50s have a much greater appearance of speed.
