SBYC 2021 Hot Rum Series Overall winner


Recommended Posts

Why didn't you get your tired, old, fat ass forward and tighten that jib leech for Paul?

Great to be able to crew for your son - good on ya. My two are very good sailors just never took it up - cycle racing and baseball became their passions in the younger years. Now we hike and backpack together and expect to do some chartering in coming months.

The boat is a J105. The jib leech cord slipped a few hundred yards from the finish line with 2 boats left to pass. We decided that sending a crew to leeward wasn't worth it at that point. The series is a pursuit race and we had to pass a Melges 24 and a J70 in order to win. Got them both by a few boat lengths.
