    Race Week Anacortes

    Curious that the R/C let boats race in the handicap classes (and get trophies) when they didn't even comply with the entry requirements in the NOR. OSR Category 4 requires lifelines.

    What is the closest 40’er to a TP52?

    Would be much more entertaining to discuss which TP52s are sailed at a level of modern 40 footers? I can think of one or two.
