    Way to go WCB!

    Good on ya mate! I know you've worked long and hard to built up the Park City Sailing Assoc. from almost nothing to one of the largest Laser fleets in the Rocky Mountains.

    Saving Racing - from front page

    There has been some banter about this on the D-one and other threads about new single handers with kites. I think rather than get hugely off topic, I'll start a thread for the train wreck. My views from my time racing in a desert. "Join a club, and if there isn't one within reach, form one."...

    WCB's new toy

    I may get in trouble and be nice to the guy. It was his first time out and we only had a small window of time. The proud new owner of an A class cat. The water was still a little lumpy from the storm that rolled through last night. The wind was about 8-10 and about 57 F air temp. and...

    Its here!

    You all know how I feel about my boat and the class as a whole. We now have a class website. It is still in its infancy and will be chaning frequently so come back and come often. There are links to various things related to the Swift Solo and articles by current owners. If you have...

    Contraceptive for kangaroos

    Conracetpives to be given to kangaroos. I know that the animal lovers don't like to cull animals but putting contraceptives on the grass for all animals to eat seems wrong. In this day and age where people are concerned with the unused portion of women's birthcontrol pills that are flushed into...

    The magic of sailing on Great Salt Lake

    We regularly get winds like this in the summer. A nice breeze that doesn't touch the water. It makes finding new wind a little bit of a bother but doing hull speed with not a wave to be seen is quite a treat.

    Skipper Handicapping

    I am interested about how most clubs that handicap skippers do this. I am going to start a Portsmouth fleet in my club but I have not decided if I want to add the handicapping of the crews as well. Do you try to make the adjustment so that everyone can be first or do you do it so that the slower...

    Cats VS Skiffs

    I've seen quite a few posts where this whole skiff VS cat thing turns into such a shit fight. What the hell is up with that? Both boats are cool and both boats are fast. Cats are probably faster as a group. I would love to have a T and I would love to have an 18. I personally have a...
