  1. IMOCA full pack, boat name is RumHam Just tiptoeing into the Bay of Biscay
  2. Creeping closer to our team's fastest set in the 2013 IHYC Gearbuster. This past weekend, in this year's IHYC Gearbuster, we hit 21.5 kts in the J/121 also with the A3. Very similar conditions to 2013 except breeze was about 5kts less.
  3. Agreed, would also add the J/120 and J/122
  4. Pretty sure that article was written in the 90s. Andrew Hall has the J/121 Jackhammer now

  6. spacecraft from Interstellar
  7. https://www.vendeeglobe.org/en/news/20687/four-vendee-globe-skippers-are-in-the-zone-to-help-in-rescue-of-kevin-escoffier Article 2200hrs UTC NEWS UPDATE Race Direction of the Vendée Globe requested the assistance of three competing skippers, Germany’s Boris Herrmann (Seaexplorer-Yacht Club de Monaco), Yannick Bestaven (Maître CoQ IV) and Sébastien Simon (ARKEA PAPREC) to help Jean Le Cam (Yes We Cam!) in the mission to retrieve solo skipper Kevin Escoffier from his life raft after the 40 year old from Saint Malo had to abandon his IMOCA 60 PRB this Monday afternoon after acti
  8. Sounds like rationalization to me at this point. We haven't seen any of these boats properly line up against each other yet. Which parts are the "best concepts"? What makes this the "most advanced"?
  9. RumHam here, will be joining for the Vendee. In races so far have not been aware that there are routing programs like Zezo so will be great start using that. Have just used what was available within the app. I've always kind of figured that if I can see @Your Mom, I must be doing something right. Thanks for posting the link to Zezo
  10. I have a Quatix 5, the racing app is quite useful on it's own and pretty accurate relative to our boat's B&G Z3 instruments on the boat. The next challenge is to try to connect the two...they don't recognize each other via bluetooth or ANT+. Has anyone had any luck with this? If we had Garmin instruments and autopilot, it should be able to connect, feed data to the phone and control the autopilot. Would be great to get that going. I can connect to the boat's audio system and my phone at the same time and control the music which is pretty great for cruising. I believe the Quatix 5
  11. are those cleats on the bow that move up/down or just placeholders? If the former, I'm surprised they didn't go with the swiveling antal cleats used on the 121. We and the few other boats I've spoken to have been very happy with them Also surprised to see only 1 tack line rigged given the design brief of this boat as offshore/short-handed. Maybe they didn't get around to it for this show
  12. 22.5 down a wave with an A3 in our J/120 in the 2013 Gearbuster, though I heard a J/120 hit 25 or 26 in the 2010 Vineyard Race. So far, ~19 with the A2 up is our top speed in the 121 during this year's Geartester, it was a short 5 mile leg and our 1st race in the boat so didn't really have time to open her up
  13. yes, i believe the hull is the former Carbonado
