    The Tarnishing of the Annapolis Yacht Club - Commodore Hartman Needs to Resign

    Open Letter for the Resignation of  C. Edward Hartman, III Often more times than not, our leaders who are either elected, or placed into a position through nepotism in the roles to protect, advance, and lead our society, fail us with most profound lack of civility and dignity. Throughout the...

    Michael Masi.....the worst PRO of all time?

    The average safety car is ~4 laps. Mercedes knows this and posted an article years ago about it and strategy in 2016. They plan for these things and if you listen to the Podcasts this year, Ferrari’s strategist talks about it as well...

    2021 J105 North American Championship

    The 2021 J105 North American Championship kicks off today in the editors favorite place of Annapolis, MD.  While the local Annapolis fleet normally has a strong showing, there are a number of out of town competitors including boats from New York, Florida, Texas, California and even the friendly...

    With Layline and APS closed, who do you mail order from

    Yes, you did that right. From what I understand, those books were actually developed by the customer service team who were all sailors and 95% of them racers.  They methodically went over boats to see where they could make things better, have it a class spec for the rules, and give customers the...

    Annapolis Performance Sailing - OFFICIALLY DEAD

    I think a rigging store could be okay as long as your willing to have the rope inventory. Everywhere is currently West Marine only for the most part. I believe Rig Pro in Newport closed as well.  It won't make you rich, but could be a nice side hussle.

    State flag on boat

    Well everyone from Texas seems to fly a flag as big as their boat, so go for it.

    Depends on your size, but I have a brand new pair of Musto Salopettes XL in Black I would be willing to let go for a considerable discount.

    Annapolis Newport Race

    You are not setting the record straight. You are giving your input of you wanted them to have a penalty and provided the information that you saw fit to do so. The current word on the street is they paid an electronics company to fix the AIS before the race and to ensure it was working. It was...

    Has anyone tried the new North offshore gear?

    So essentially Musto sells to HH, and he then goes and designed the gear for NS and jacked the prices. $600+ for bibs and not even Salopettes is getting out of hand. My guess is the cut will be worse than the NS Italian clothes that would only fit a child.

    Annapolis Mooring Rant - AYC bite me

    You are correct. This started as a trial last year, this is the second year. Every Club in Annapolis has the same issue, not enough slips, or parking spots for members.

    Annapolis Mooring Rant - AYC bite me

    Apparently, the moorings are leased by the Club from Friday at Noon, until Monday at Noon.  They are not for overnight use unless approved by the Club due to transient slips being full, they are for use of members while at the Club using the facilities. While I hear you, and feel your pain...

    BIRW not dead

    The whole what classes boats sail in is getting ridiculous. Phrf, Performance Cruising, etc.  Mine as well have an IRC Party at Block too.

    BIRW not dead

    Makes sense. Flying Jenny has an ORC rating due to non class sails.  Fortissimo's rating might be questionable based on stock sails or something. Peacemaker, well rumor was it was measured years ago and moved over to ORC without a new measurement. Stick a 4300lb boat that crushes everyone...

    With Layline and APS closed, who do you mail order from

    Could always recreate APS in the same location, for lots of dollars.
