    BVI on a cat in April...help 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

    Jamaica Race...

    I have no idea why this race isn't more popular. I've done, and I love it. Today's start looks like it could be lumpy getting across the stream, but could be a quick race. Unfortunate they have a total of 12 boats entered.

    what do you think it costs to do sydney->hobart?

    obviously a massively broad question. Assume: existing 70ft boat lying on US east coast. What does it cost to get it delivered to/from? Most other costs (crew, hotels, food, etc) I can estimate. I'm guessing you could "save" some by taking her there on her bottom but that would be a...

    Poll-is Dicko done with the AC?

    Just wondering if we will see Dicko in another AC campaign. Personally I can't imagine him being able to get another job, perhaps if Larry is still fond of him he will stick around in some administration capacity but I think his sailing days are over. What say you?
