  1. ****SPOILER ALERT***** Congrats to fellow sail-nut John John Florence for the win. Beautiful waves at Bells Beach this year! World Surfing League coverage was pretty good too. Also, fun to see the Masters like Occy and them still ripping waves. In big wave news, Kai Lenny dropped a highlight reel. Prepare to be amazed:
  2. As with most Perry boats, I have a hard time with the house. Looks too big and slopes down too much. The hull looks sweet.
  3. Great video. Great soundtrack. Galapogos to Marquesas on a Tri.
  4. That must be the only carbon fiber butterfly hatch on the planet.
  5. OK. I guess I should add that the M23 I'm talking about was being sailed by Randy Smythe at the time....
  6. The m23 is a faster boat in most conditions. The rating tells you that and I have seen it in multiple races.
  7. M23 is faster than sprint/dash Do not know about Pulse.
  8. First Pulse to race in in the US this weekend at the Cherry Pie Regatta in Sarasota. Link to participants: http://www.regattanetwork.com/clubmgmt/applet_registrant_list.php?regatta_id=11495&custom_report_id=2 Phrf rating is 48. Same as F27. Seems a little generous? If anyone is down there, please chime in with observations...
  9. Boat is powered up around the 4:00 and 9:40 mark. Mute the soundtrack. Speed looks comparable to a Sprint...
  10. This is a really nice video from Brittany, France. https://www.youtube.com/embed/8F6ROrANpl4
  11. Would 'ya believe it if you saw it? Happy to take you sailing some time.... I'm sure WHL means SINGLE main sheet DDW.
  12. Sorry KD, but you brought it on yourself. For performance sloop sailors a functioning traveler is an absolute necessity.
  13. OK. 2 main sheets allows the boom to brought to weather. Makes sense. Does the exact same thing as a traveler.
