    The first Endeavour was supposed to be the faster boat but for crewing issues.

    Looks a bit difficult to get from point one (the tack) to where he shows now without clipping the zone (as he would have had to bear away around the corner of the zone and then head up to a course higher on the wind than he can currently sail to get where he is?

    History request - boat maybe "Spirit of the North" - Port Hamble Yard around 1993?

    If I remember right, it hit either Goose Rock or the Varvassi during the '95 RTI

    What custom cruiser...if money were no object?

    Depends what I was going to use it for, but either a Garcia 45 or an Outremer 45.

    What is it - hot / cold molded dinghy

    Doesnt look like a firefly, they have a much more pronounced transition between stem and keel.

    Inflatable dinghy anarchy

    My brother has one of these http://foldablerib.com/product/f-rib-330/ with a 6hp outboard and is very happy with it - he thinks it does about 18 knots one up and 14 with 2 average size people.  You might be able to fit the 275 on your foredeck.

    My sons $1 dollar boat gets a re-fit.

    I think the Fairey Atlanta did a pretty good aft cabin within 26 feet in the 1950s.

    2018 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race: The Race Committee has lodged a protest against Wild Oats XI

    Arguably the PC -after deciding the technicality - could have asked MR if he still believed his declaration was true and to consider RAF pending which they would consider r69 protest....

    2018 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race: The Race Committee has lodged a protest against Wild Oats XI

    YeAh I get that but somehow I think the bar is higher for a protest based on wilful dishonesty rather than simple non compliance with the SIs - I’m suggesting that for issues other than boat on boat breaches, the technicality that WO got off on be eliminated.

    2018 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race: The Race Committee has lodged a protest against Wild Oats XI

    I think the marker for going forwards is that for offshore the RC needs to give themselves the right to protest competitors for situations like this irrespective of reports from competitors - this really needs to be on the RC to monitor.

    So why turn it off in breach of the rules if they didn’t think there was an advantage (for example, if a split developed)?

    That’s like saying my biggest spinnaker didn’t measure but hey, it doesn’t matter because I didn’t use it.
