    Perhaps the Farr is faster than Sequoia in those conditions. We were not faster than the J/145, The Doc, in those conditions. Perhaps boat prep, time in the boat, not laying the gybe mark, setting/dousing a kite after the gybe mark was a part of the difference too? I can guarantee you that...

    The short answer is, it is Matt's fault (I know you all thought I was going to say Eric's)! The longer answer is laziness! We looked at the new cruising main last week when we had no one to sail against and were too lazy to put the full sized main back on... it is only Wet Wed! :D

    Nice Job Warrior and Prevail! I'm pretty sure Warrior swept 1st and 1st in EVERY rating system. The Morpheus PHRF finish shows them finishing in 0:00:00 corrected, which obviously is wrong and they won't beat Warrior when they change the error. Great job! MadMacks, it is spelled Bohman. :)

    Thanks everyone for the calls, texts and e-mails. It made 5 days in the hospital a little more bearable. Long story short, what I thought was indigestion for a few weeks was a gallstone impeding the bile duct in the gallbladder. The backed up bile was poisoning me. Fortunately, after a very...

    That's a great old photo. "Guys in green stay on starboard, guys in red stay on port!" :)

    Hey Santa Barbara Soakers! Hope you are all staying safe. Today was a beautiful day in Key West. Funny how the grass is always greener… we all wish we were experiencing the storm of the decade, but hopefully the next few days only fill the water supply and the hillsides stay where they...

    Great to see Mike Campbell's memory honored with all the SoCal Farr's attending. Congrats to the Far Niente group with ex-Ventuckian, Jeff Thorpe, calling the shots. http://www.sail-world.com/USA/Campbell-Cup-to-Holua/62594

    On a more positive note, we're having a great time in San Francisco. I kept having to run outside during the Alcatraz tour to click photos of the boats coming by. At the Giants/Dodgers game, there were almost as many Dodgers fans as Giants. The locals were not happy to see all the blue...

    Janer, unfortunately the team you suggest would likely all end up in Spinnaker A with their rating bands. What are their rating bands... they will tell you at the skipper's meeting?!?!? Then the SBYC boats could not lose to another boat and get 6 points 1+2+3=6). That team may lose to the...

    G, Are you allowed to post on a SAILING website anymore??? :P Glad you guys are having fun. Sorry that we couldn't join you. We went to the Fiesta parade today. Saw a horse attached to a carriage freak out and bolt up State St.-- almost running into the crowd. One woman was slightly...

    Farr 40 Performance factor- 3.59 J-125 Performance factor- 4.75 When does a Farr 40 start planing? How much time should the J-125 owe a Farr 40 in King Harbor? In my opinion, about 12 seconds a mile. PHRF says otherwise, but what do I know...

    I think the SB-KH race organizers did a great job of breaking all the diversity into classes and I would not be surprised to see NOSA do something similar. The Sprit-UL PHRF class boats are great fun, but they are, as you say, “freaks” when it comes to downwind races. +1 Just be glad there...
