  1. This sail has been re-cut. And very poorly. They cut the foot length down by hacking off the sail from the lower batten to the clew. There is only one way to fix this and it involves a trash can. Used sails are useless unless they aiready fit the boat. The money wasted on that re-cut would have gone a long way towards buying a new one that fits.
  2. Agree about innovation and new technology, but it doesn't have to be in boats which are expected to sail round the world single handed without assistance. These things can't even get alongside a dock, let alone in and out of a port without assistance! OK, I'll ask. What other type of sailing is there that allows for this development? You need money to do this, and the money is in the Open 60. These boats are not designed to dock. They are designed to race around the world. They have budgets that allow them to have shore support to help them get to the dock. Deck spreaders have been
  3. 34 S, here's a good shot of a 40S2 in the mould and my 12.50, ie: same hull. Much more cabin volume to say the least. Mmm...waterballast.. Sorry, the 40S2 picture is a bit small. Pogo 40S2.jpgBuild 10.jpg OK, so same hull mould, but you get a coach roof, which is good, but no water ballast? Is the keel a lot deeper and heavier to compensate? Gunwales the same height as S2? Even if offered I wouldn't go flip up rudders, the class 40's seem to be moving away from them. I guess gybes are exciting enough without having a rudder popping up half way through. Interesting,
  4. Every pair is custom. Nothing to see. Unless you find the feet they were moulded to.
  5. Just so we are on the same page, there is no such thing as rejecting a protest. The organizing authority takes the form, notes the time it was received and sends it on to the protest committee. They determine if it is valid. Those are the rules.So they had hearing to validate one of the protests. Did they have a "validation hearing", whatever that is, for the Hustler protest, or just say FU we're not listening?HS -you have been defending Your club as if you know the details, but in the same breath you say you don't have details. This whole thing stinks. Part of me wants John to get DSQ'd three

  7. who wrote this for you?Ime heareng dissrepect, you havente erned the rite Mattwina.no disrepect. Just curious. I have earned the right. Which is why i wouldn't.
  8. Do they have a club team trophy? They do this alot at other big events. 3 boats per team, a club can enter as many teams as they want.
  9. "Dimmer" was a play on word. Get it? First Light. I'm so clever. This FILIPINO will miss the swim-in beer cooler of the brighter First Light.... but we welcome you back. It will be a good summer. ohhh... Filipino. Beyond clever, a good speller to boot. I even used spell check and still got it wrong.Can't wait to get back to town!
  10. First Light got shorter, but not dimmer. Really great boat. Only thing missing is a cooler that will fit a Philipino, 10 cases of beer and 40 pounds of ice.

    every class 40 and open 60 with twin rudders has tillers ( with a few exceptions). So does the sunfast 32.
