    zero the hero

    I am a group 3 because of my business. I am classed in the same group as Jimmy Spithill. Really? This pretty much knocks me out of crewing on any amateur only event. I am talking about going sailing and not getting paid. Disqualified. I think it should be performance based, and the rules...

    melges 24 sails

    Everyones designs are pretty refined at this point. Find a sailmaker that will provide you with the best service. On these boats, it is very important on HOW you sail them, a trusted sailmaker would help you get to speed.

    SR Max 21

    Who made the sails? That would be where to start, they could tell you things like prebend and mast sag. This is why I always say, pick the sailmaker that is going to give the best service to you.

    Ft10s are fast and fun. Very ergonomic to sail, and built to last. True they had a few issues, but what boat is perfect? I personally think the ft 7.5s missed the boat in the us. If the original builder would have shown half the support of the melges or jboats guys, the j70 would not be...
