    Why are people in the Fastnet race sailing with a dirty bottom?

    with my 3600 a dirty bottom cost 0.5 knot easy, especially in the light when dragging the ass through the water.

    How many reef points?

    Three reef points and you are good - we DH all the time and the storm trysail is only there to keep a race safety inspector happy - reality of actually using it versus 3rd reef is nil!!

    Why did J Boats drop the J100?

    I used the jib boom once so the Quantum sail that comes with the boat will be almost pristine! The sail is just too small for racing - 84% or thereabouts. It is nice to go dead down wind in a blow with the jib boom but for upwind work just wont wok - least not here in our typically light wind...

    Buying a new boat - what to do and what not to?

    Here there would be no retained money - have to register ownership with the state and / or Coastguard and I can't imagine any dealer will turn over the title without payment in full!!

    Buying a new boat - what to do and what not to?

    Most important change would be wheels rather than tiller - I thought that the tillers would be more fun and responsive, which they are, but they are also situated at for me a really awkward angle - I had the handles cut down  - if you look at the early boats they have smaller handles on the...
