    Class B AIS, now that Garmin owns Vesper

    I went with the Raymarine AIS since it has the built in antenna splitter. Interfaces with B&G instrument system must fine.

    What boat should I get - if any?

    Geez. Kind of a wide open post. Just do what you want don't listen to us. Or maybe do what your wife/girlfriend wants. And more importantly as a first time poster rules say show us their tits. And if you are a female show us yours!!!!

    Novak Djokovic

    What about all the people wandering into the USA through Mexico. Do they have their VAX cards and if not are they told they can't come into the USA without being vaccinated.

    Its Complicated

    Maybe it is different in the UK but racing under ORC in the USA the difference in our certificates is crew weight. It has nothing to do with how you sail the boat. It is all VPP driven and my DH and fully crewed orc is basically the same for the all around number. But if you use heavy wind...

    Its Complicated

    Interesting under ORC you have separate DH and fully crewed ratings but the difference has to do with crew weight. Sometimes the DH rating rates faster!!! We have a local 230 mile race called the Vineyard race. DH is in their own division like any other division but is also eligible for...

    Club Swan 80 (From the FP)

    You can do it in the water measuring how high it floats in the water. That is how ORC gets the weight. You do need hull drawings which for a new boat is no problem.

    Putting an asym on a furler

    Don't think it would work well with your sail. It is an A2 which is a large mid girth running spinnaker. Furlers really only work with A3 and Code 0's in my experience. Also depending on the size of the boat snuffers are not all that bad. Bigger the boat the better they are.

    Pacific Cup 2022 - 91 entries and waitlist started

    East coaster here trying to follow this thread and waiting to see why Rufless retired. Lots of innuendo comments about the 125 class and questionable ratings. But for those in the know why did Rufless retire?
