    I know Chris Kennedy does. Not sure about others but I think there are a few. They have been in need of boat builders that will stick around, seems like it's been tough keeping the entry level/lower positions filled to keep up with demand.

    Landing in on shore breeze, come in at a45 degree angle to the shore with the rudder unlocked and board halfway up. When close to touching, head up, pull the board completely out(so it doesn't catch on the boom) and kick the rudder up. Use the wind to parallel park the boat and step off like...

    52nd Thrash to the Onion Patch

    52nd Thrash to the Onion Patch

    Should be fun to see how the two Volvo 70's match up against the maxi 72 in open water. And don't underestimate Warrior One.  Watching them plane away from boats 30' longer on a close reach during the Block Island race was eye opening.

    Thank you Mr Shadow! Worked out perfectly. Now if you can just get our account sorted out so she's not a Cat 3 just because she works for a sailing school and has sailed on Far 40's. Last name rhymes with Looney. Think Mad Eye from Harry Potter.

    World Sailor Classification Group 1/ Group 3

    Does anyone know if World Sailing automatically classifies you as a Category 3 (pro) until they finish reviewing your application? I just applied and assigned Cat 3, even though I am an amateur answered all questions correctly.  How do I get this corrected? Website is showing review...

    Farr X2 info?

    Lots of boats being built in China. HH catamarans comes to mind quickly, and I'm sure there are many more.

    Melges 20 Winter Series Mar 4-6 - russians are gone

    Kites don't have #'s or country codes on them so that would be a trivial matter, just slap some new sticky back insignia on.  Our of curiosity I checked and Nika was registered under RUS for event 1 of the series, but did not compete.
