  1. Wingnuts and Imedi, both wound up being safety equipment failures in some form or another and both happened in the last decade. Which other race has had a safety record like that in the last Decade? Fastnet Race? RORC 600? Middle Sea? Hobart? Bermuda?
  2. Considering the Mac race is one of the few distance races in the country which regularly sees deaths on the race, I think anyone complaining about safety requirements is not acknowledging the reality of the race. People dunk on the Bermuda Race for having onerous safety requirements but there haven't been fatalities in that race in its entire history.
  3. What Lance won't tell you is that more and more races are switching from ORR to ORC. Skip the 1990s tech that makes up ORR and just go ORC, which by the way, creates ratings for Multihulls
  4. Rio to break in the first 10 miles
  5. There’s nothing more than a rendering looking for an owner to find Shaun’s expensive (even for an NA) lifestyle.
  6. Best furlers out there are Ubi Maior. Reach out to @RImike
  7. Want to drop the gossip? What color was this boat?
  8. Measure them realtive to your beam of destiny
  9. KK at Quantum really is the best Jboats designer out there.
  10. I'm sure you'll see Thin Man doing Edlu and Around Block Island in the Spring
  11. Good, some etchells shouldn’t be more class legal than others. maybe this will help restore the fleets waining numbers at the top level.
  12. Well we were talking about big bronze things, got me thinking
  13. Is anyone out there making lightweight or titanium sheaves? I know Harken makes ball bearing ones but none of their dimensions work. I have an awfully heavy tulip at the top of the rig.
  14. Unless you're in certain areas which recognize you can't sail a Windward/Leeward regatta with a Code 55 and only apply the rating hit to the distance rating for that boat.
