    Modified Farr395's, how are they holding up?

    Unsure. Can’t find the listing to check. New rudder is primo though.

    Modified Farr395's, how are they holding up?

    Old School is very much not a stock Farr 395 below the waterline. They went with a low vcg keel like five years ago. I’m not sure what they did with the balsa but the work was done in Rhode Island so presumably it was done well.

    2018 Big Boat Challenge

    So when infotrack was loyal they blew up a spinnaker during the SOLAS race and had a new one finished by north in time for the big race. I’ll be surprised if North isn’t able to put together a couple downwind sails for Scallywag in 14 days.

    Don't forget the tent stakes and 3$ aluminum coffee pots.

    You totally could, but I'm not sure if I'd feel overcharged or just sore from craning to see it while out hiking. On a per-screen basis the Prisim seems to be a bargain!

    2017 Hobie 33 North American Championships

    Well I mean, every time we let Mustang__1 drive the start on Hot Stuff we're either barely early or catastrophically late for the line ;)   Gotta eat your way aft! Mostly trimming front sails these days, some driving, some interesting stuff. Only bow on the Etchells as of recently.

    Gonna need a citation for that one. Because I think I know what you're referencing and you likely have the details wrong.

    Just a little bit of a plug for a friend organizing a regatta. The Edlu Race is a 32 mile distance race on LIS the weekend after American YC Spring Series in a few weeks time. So far there are 3 J/88s entered in the event and a number that seem interested. The OA has said that they'll give the...

    Miami to Havana Sleigh Ride Thread

    I'm gutted for them after the same thing happened to us on the Hobie 33 last year in the same race in the same conditions. They've even bailed to the same marina we bailed to. It's a tough one to take. The Hobie is an offshore rocket, and Mirage will likely win this race overall, but the rudder...

    Thomas 35 runners

    I trim the jib on the express 37 against you every week and I've noticed you having the problems you cite. If you're not interested in making rig structure alterations, you might want to experiment with adjusting your headstay length for different wind ranges. Take turns off to add depth to the...

    Miami to Havana Race Wx

    Considering my head sticks out of the companionway hatch sitting upright in the Nav station that's not much of an issue ;) It was the first edition. There were genuine concerns onboard about running the north shore of Cuba. There were worries that the topography of the island would rob the...

    Miami to Havana Race Wx

    Interesting about the north shore of Cuba. I'd heard rumors of a GS countercurrent there but it seemed like a lot to gamble on, plus low confidence in the charts for the area being correct. How far inshore did you need to be to get it? How Far East did you find it?
