    J/70 or J/80 Reaching Spinnakers Wanted

    ISP of 30 means a Melges 24 kite works better than a Melges 20. Can’t wait to go fast. Short season up here in VT. You know how the boys are when they get that syrup in them

    J/70 or J/80 Reaching Spinnakers Wanted

    Looking for an A1, A3, or Code Zero shaped kite for either a J/70 or J/80. I recognize the J/70 class uses an all purpose kite but perhaps there are some unique ones out there. Used only. Doesn't need to be in *great* condition, needs to be serviceable. Doing a turbo job on a similarly sized...

    VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Why? Your premise is flawed because the boats are One Design. Even if you believe Dongfeng has a 1% speed advantage (which, no, they don't, otherwise they'd be 30-40 miles ahead of the fleet right now) you would see no functional difference by modeling at the .05% level which is roughly the...

    Dubarry Ultimate Boots Beware !

    Purchased mine in the spring of 2010 and have put them through hard hard use since then. It became official this october: I pulled my right foot out and the sock was soaking wet - while the left side foot was bone dry. Guess they're starting to go. I went around with Dubarry this spring trying...

    Ubi Maior Jib Furler

    So, if I'm seeing this right, the furler is imparting the furling torsion onto the luff of the sail? Thoughts on how this will affect sail shape with long term usage?
