    Girl with patreon account goes sailing in hot place

    Here's another channel with a hot self-absorbed babe and nerdy guy, with minimal pond sailing experience getting waaaayyy over their heads with a big boat and big sailing dreams. Although, the first few videos are interesting as they are looking at some boats and doing surveys that uncover...

    New low lat. Caribbean Hurricane - paging Mark !

    Pride of Baltimore II is headed South off the NJ coast, completing the last stretch of her season-long trip to the great lakes. Looks like she will be home before the &*$% hits the fan. Another reason for the storm to miss the Chesapeake. We were lucky enough to sail aboard her for a day...

    Video 1983 SORC

    Are SORC results over the years posted anywhere online? If not, what magazines would have covered them back in the day? Does anyone have stacks of sailing porn mags from back in the day that have these results and would be willing to scan and post?

    Cracked tiller - repair or replace?

    Sounds worth trying. I'll get start with allen's suggestion. I may do break's wrap on top of that just to be sure. Thanks, mates ;) Would still be interested in sources for a new tiller for future reference.

    Cracked tiller - repair or replace?

    I have a 30 year old wood tiller on my '81 Evelyn 26. What started a few seasons ago as a hairline crack near the hole for the tiller extension, is now longer and wider. I got through this season by installing two hose clamps and taping it up. Is there a repair technique that would work, or...

    3 dead in N2E

    I see the video. It shows two USCG vessels picking up a couple of small pieces of debris. The shots do not show the proximity to the islands.

    IMOCA Bel

    The guy that goes to the bow - is he un-tethered? If so, is there a reason to risk being swept off at 25+ kts?

    2010 CYC Race to Mackinac

    There are plenty of choices, with chain hotels or local places in either Mackinaw City or St Ignace. I have had no problem booking in St Ignace for post-Mac stays. Last year I stayed in the Holiday Inn which was much more comfortable than staying on the boat.

    A Scows

    I would think he would do well in the Finland nationals this year :P Good luck, and please grease the starboard board before you launch.

    To be clear, I'm looking for recent condition info on the former Katabatic, a Taylor 43 that's now at MMA as "Dejavu", and shown in the photos a few posts back. Is this a good Mac boat for Lake Michigan? Rates -6 in PHRF, but does she sail to that?

    A friend of mine is considering purchasing the 43 Dejavu (ex Sheerness/Experience/Katabatic) from MMA and taking it to the Great Lakes (again, as I understand the history). I have read through the postings on here. I think he said the Occam instruments are not operational. Any recent info...
