    Ensenada Race, gonna blow

    Race 3 was actually pretty entertaining, especially that second-to-last leg. Love that BT Sport had to put up a banner just before the commercial "We apologize for any offensive language you may have heard." Jimmy multiple times dropping f-bombs and at the end BA.

    Looks like the Lightning blueprints got coffee moonshine spilled on them. Also love that the builder was going to sew his own sails out of tarp material (we've seen that many a time of course)

    what is the line that the guy on starboard and forward is holding? the port side same line looks like it's connected to the aft end of the front element. also, the port mainsheet is going from wing to hull, but starboard is going directly down to the aft beam?

    Many of you have probably seen this before, but I just got it sent to me and gave me a much needed laugh today and thought I'd pass it along, well worth reading all of it: Prayer to the Roller Jib “And on the eighth day God created roller furling, and He saw that it was good." So begins the...
