  1. Fun headsail to tack, I'm sure.
  2. This video is insane. I could watch this over and over and over......
  3. I am shocked and sorry to hear this. Billy was always a great guy to sail with, and eager to help out when asked. He will be missed.
  4. The Chilean Ducasse family won the Corinthian division. The Janov children did a great job being consistent.
  5. Marina Del Rey is serving up its best, typical conditions for the fleet (i.e. brutal chop, light air, streaky puffs), completely unlike the pre-Worlds conditions a week and a half ago. Shoreside events are nice and completely outdoors.
  6. I think that there is a big agreement on the money required to compete in sailing. You could be a talent in your local body of water, but if you are not able to get some additional coaching and race in big events, it's tough to catch up. The biggest events are in Europe every year, so there is a time/money/logistics commitment, and with a small pool available, it could be difficult to get the right individuals into Europe. And then there's the Club 420. It will be interesting to follow the successful USA I-420 sailors from this summer, and see how they progress going forward. Again,
  7. I have never seen that image of Imp out of the water. What a good looking hull below the waterline (not to mention the timeless green topsides). I really should have bought that Imp book.
  8. Honestly it doesn't seem like an outrageous slip fee increase to get nearer to market rate. I think that the bigger slips should be paying a lot more/foot, since they take up more space (I remember an old Latitude 38 article that touched on this). I haven't walked the Dana Point docks in a long time, but if they are being upgraded to floating concrete with services at each slip, then it makes sense to increase the rental fee. Marina del Rey has been going through this transformation for the past decade, and now there are only a couple of anchorages left with old wooden docks and lower s
  9. This video is cringey as heck when it comes to the interaction between the guy and his dream crew. The aerial video sequences of the keelboat sailing are nice.
  10. Nice looking race boat. I think the ding would be the cruiser part of racer/cruiser, with no v-berth and minimal interior. Best of luck on the sale.
  11. I threw away about a dozen that were sitting in the back of a cabinet, unworn, about 2 months ago. It was time to purge and they went. I don't have the patience for ebay, but maybe I should have gone fishing.
  12. Our club had 60+ DF95's purchased and show up in the past few weeks. Now it's all bowsies and leech trim.
  13. I'm really looking to the remake of the movie "Wind", where the 'womp' is when the boat splats on the water and nearly sinks, and then in the fairy tale ending, it gets put back together and wins the day. LOL Great job by the Italians, and I expect that we will see more than 4 races in the Prada Cup finals.
  14. Clarks, I must say that you have drawn and built a very handsome small boat. A couple of them would be great to have and zoom around on during the Summer.
  15. That would be a sight to see. I'm sure you have it safely tucked away in the video vault.
