  1. I know not wet gear but i recently bought a drysuit for dinghy sailing - wow, what a game changer that is. Dry and warm.
  2. Really like my Mustang Meris Salopettes - they go on sale sometimes, got mine for $400 cdn last year.
  3. yes they are spaced 1/2 inch so there is flow
  4. i recently bought bullet nosed zincs from martec - designed for less resistance and to go either side of the cutlass bearing. They are a bit small so i have another one i drop over the side wired to the engine mount.
  5. Small egos, chuckles on the boat even if (especially if) we're deep, friendships, gelling on manouvers, minimal barking, the occasional pickle dish.
  6. 1983 Star Worlds in Marina Del Rey, 1996 Tasar Worlds in Cascade Locks, 2007 J24 Worlds in Neuvo Vallata, 2017 6mR worlds in Vancouver
  7. A long distance race like Transpac or Vic-Maui - probably on someone else's program / boat. I have only done a few overnighters. A world championship - I have done 4 in 4 different classes - and would like to do another, they are just so much fun and incredible learning opportunities. A charter in the Med - did Tahiti a couple years ago and that was the first charter I had done. Best holiday ever. A restoration project - maybe I already have that - but I'd like to restore a boat to it's former glory.
  8. Where is a good place to search for listings other than YachtWorld? I checked the association website but there weren’t any listings there. There is one in California.
  9. How much is a new J/111? Doesn’t seem to be many used ones up for sale
  10. Just did my first SH race on my J92. It was pretty easy to handle in sub 10 knots. Did a few gybes, doused to the companionway. Very balanced upwind. Easy peezy.
  11. Whale on the bow in the Gulf Islands of British Columbia
  12. I hope nobody rolls an ankle, I meant them to keep the crew safer. The wedges are 3x3. Before it was just 1x1 square coamings that were too easy to slip off - especially dangerous going down the lee side to ease the jib. Maybe I will paint the top of each wedge a contrasting colour. Fun project but took way longer than I thought it would.
  13. My winter project almost done - replaced soft core, glassed in foot wedges, then kiwi gripped
  14. I have a 1 x 2 ft patch to do in the cockpit of my J/92. Planning to do it from above and was wondering the cloth layup to use? Also I was going to try and do this at the dock under my boom tent, rather than hauling, taking out the mast and finding shelter. Am I asking for trouble?
