    Best Buoyancy Aid for Dinghy and Sport Boat Racing

    I like my Zhik, but have type III"s also. Best answer to the Coasties or the regatta chair is to wear the Zhik while you have a inflatable waist belt in the locker on the boat. USCG says it just needs to be aboard, not necessarily on..

    This is getting ridiculous. Another mass shooting

    I heard 760 rounds were fired by LE during the shootout... I would guess that something "accessed their minds", possibly more than once... "Nice shooting Tex!" And no collateral damage, job well done I say..

    Coach to Competitor ratio

    Let's drop the games out of this discussion for a moment. I feel there are FAR TOO MANY coach boats out for weekend events.. I have seen 15+ in LB on many occasions.. You want to talk about the cost of sailing these days? I feel this has become a major impact.. Who is paying for these $80K...

    Viper NA's in Bermuda 2016
