    West Marine Has No F'N Dyneema??????

    I doubt that the source of the Dyneema Shortage is a phalanx of delivery skippers making jacklines. +1 to the "I'll buy your old ones" conversation.

    ClubSwan 41 - soft launch or floating an idea?

    These boats will *never* get out of sight of the nearest Aperol Spritz or Charcuterie board. The only thing a nav station offers to people racing in the Club Swan fleets is a nice stable location to write salary checks for their professional crew .

    Vineyard Race 2022

    Jeez. Does the skipper of Atalanta know his navigator is castigating the OA from the racecourse rather than navigating?

    Vineyard Race 2022

    Snaggy, Espo, J__T and dacapo. All bullshitting about the vineyard race. The more things change the more things stay the same. Forecast looks slow, Jeff. I know you might want to get around the race course “chop chop” but maybe relax and enjoy the view on deck. Edit: glad the life raft...

    Club Racing Protest Hearings

    Okay, then implement 3 minute justice only in the case of protests without damage. I find that it comes from people who are uncomfortable with admitting fault and would rather fight it out than admit they were wrong on the racecourse.

    Dehler 46

    Skip the dehler and buy an xp44. 46 is strange, slow, and unwieldy in comparison

    Pacific Cup 2022 - 91 entries and waitlist started

    Looking at that cert, nothing strikes me as totally out of the norm. Nobody had a tweener onboard. Agreed that the disparity among RMC numbers is something I would want explained further. The ORR Rule says that RMC corrects for centerboards or adjustable boards and that RMC = RM for fixed...

    Pacific Cup 2022 - 91 entries and waitlist started

    Any word on which sail was the offending one? Seems like you wouldn’t make the call to file that protest unless you had seen something and were confident the sail was onboard. I’ve been the instigator in a protest like this. It sucks to do but you ultimately have to in order to have meaningful...

    What's at stake with NBR Misconduct rule 69?

    Turns out I’ve sailed with Shubrook about a decade ago. I’ll just say that I didn’t want to do it again back then.

    What's at stake with NBR Misconduct rule 69?

    I’m impressed you did the race even after all this. Did the border control recant?
