    Anyone been to the BVI this season?

    I’m more bemused by my country’s rules. How is it safer for the US to allow people to enter via a ferry from Tortola->st thomas->us mainland than a plane? If you want virus security, have good security not porous half-assed security.

    BYC Mackinac - Time to Pull the Plug?

    The canadian entries didn't decide not to compete because Mac island would be off limits.  It is tough for them to compete when the Canadian's have closed their border to all non-essential, and sailing is considered non-essential.  So US boats that have Canadian residents as crew members have to...

    BVI on a cat in with route etc

    It has been 10yrs since I've raced in the BVI, I did it annually about 10times, but that has to be 10-15yrs ago. This year 3 families have chartered a cat out of Tortolla.  We will go Sat->Sat, 2:3 families have extensive sailing experience.  There will be 7kids ages 6-13 on board.  Any...

    your opinion on race trackers in real time ie Yellow Brick?

    just curious if there is a consensus amongst the group-do you like/hate real-time race tracking?  As a competitor, I'd rather see a 2hr+ delay so folks at the back of the fleet don't get to use the leaders as mine sweepers.   any thoughts? -cubfan

    Not sure if I should post here or in cruising anarchy (If in the wrong place please feel free to move with my apologies). Three families are thinking of chartering a cat in the BVI this spring (6 adults 7kids 10&under).  We have been saving and talking about this for a while and it seems...

    Newport -Bermuda 2016

    I'd say for two reasons: 1) the IOR boats were built stronger and had a deeper V to the hull. With these new planing style big boats, when you come off a big wave and hit the trough flat it hurts-the boat pounds and wise man always say "wind doesn't break boats-waves do". 2) if you look at the...

    2017 Pineapple Cup??

    I've done the race 3 times, I have no experience with the current race management. I'm also not aware of them "shit talking" other events-can you enlighten me? I know you are dying to. I think the problem with Jamaica is a few things: 1) the island has fairly bad/rough reputation 2)...
