    New Olympic Dinghy Selection

    Wasn't the World Sailing 2024 "decision" supposed to be released yesterday? I can hear the world sailing bureaucrats bending under the pressure of nostalgia and fear of change coming from the Laser Zombies all the way from here in Michigan. I am hoping the Kirby Torch gets put to pasture where...

    Foiling Monohull - what would it look like?

    This is hysterically funny.  ROTFL  And to think that Mr. Monohull Hutchinson thought the AC72 was dangerous (or so he said to the media after he was walked off Artemis).  Mark my words:  these absolutely ridiculous “monohull” boats (ROTFL) are DEFINITELY going to kill people. 40 knots of VMG...

    Jim Clark's fire sale continues

    It appears that your reporting, which was pretty solidly hacked here by many "friends of Comanche" at the time, has been proven accurate on this one.  I think Comanche was nothing more than an unfortunate burden for Clark from that moment forward.  He played it smart since however.  The two...

    Jim Clark's fire sale continues

    I am surprised that nobody is commenting on Comanche’s “fire sale” to an Australian and what was behind it? Comanche did do the TP and the StH but the StH was under new ownership. You SA boys are slipping.  I expected a total field day on this story here and many posts full of glorious comedy...

    Corsair Pulse 600

    Remember the piles of Corsair Pulse 600s everyone in the USA is buying and really excited about? Yeah, I know, figment of the imagination.

    Corsair Pulse 600

    800 lbs would tell me that weight was a consideration. A heavy boat does not necessarily mean a durable boat. I would like to see the actual weights vs the published weights. They are usually much heavier than advertised. Specifically the mast weight, rudder and rudder assembly weight, etc...

    Corsair Pulse 600

    Maybe true. But that does not change the fact that, for what it is, the Pulse 600 is WILDLY overpriced. Supply and Demand is an elastic and ever changing law. I simply see that as a market that is ripe for competition. Corsair is not impressive even though multihulls are very much so...

    Corsair Pulse 600

    The 20 foot tri market is going to explode but Corsiar is going to lose out. They have offended the markets intelligence in my opinion. I fully expect other builders to improve the value (price) and quality. The Corsair Pulse 600 is going to be a failure. They should have started with a much...

    Corsair Pulse 600

    Just go to your therapist and tell them your suffering from denial.

    Corsair Pulse 600

    I made a spelling error. That's your comeback? Let's try it again, but this time with some visual aides... Bottom line: There is little more tech on the Corsair Pulse 600 than a Hobie 18. I believed that this boat had some real potential but, now that we see its specs, and price, it is...

    Corsair Pulse 600

    The Corsair Pulse 600 is too expensive for what it is (fairly cheap rig, sails, build quality, finishing touches, etc) and is WAY to heavy at 1000 lbs, unlaidened. No concern to weight seems to be given. Needs a carbon rig. It should cost no more than 30k as it is currently delevered...

    The VX Evo

    Looks nice but we have seen this all before, what, 20 times? I still like the weta trimaran better than this. Yes, Americans still don't understand the value of multihulls. The Weta has a simple Asail which sits hoisted on a fuller, ready to go. You simply pull out the sheet to set or pull on...

    J70 after three years.. it has been very successful Why is that and w

    Nice effort to spin. I'm momentarily amused. Spin vs "reality." Reality - The J70 personifies the sailing ability and "comfort level" of most US sailors. That ability is very low, and they are unwilling or afraid to learn. Physically they are not in shape and are afraid of competing...

    The idiocy of the "J70 mindset" is personified perfectly in the quote below. Yes, other sportboats "try to kill you!" Please name 5 similar sportboats that "try and kill us," please... 1. ??? 2. ??? 3. ??? 4. ??? 5. ??? Why should children ever move beyond the majestic sailing wooden...
