    Why are people in the Fastnet race sailing with a dirty bottom?

    So I am eating my lunch today, watching a video from the Fastnet race this year, and the sight of one boat got me thinking... What do you use to anti-foul your boat? How often do you clean your bottom? What type of sailing do you do, and how seriously? How much difference does it actually...

    Which class "SHOULD" replace the "Mixed Double Handed Offshore Keelboat"?

    Sorry guys if this is another thread very similar to one already in existance... but I feel like it's a different, more personal topic (what you want, not what IOC wants). Now, in my opinion there is exactly one boat which should "replace" the mixed offshore double hander. And it was literally...

    The passing of Hobie Alter

    I heard today of the passing of Hobie Alter, as you all know the man behind hobie (if this is to be true, as it is unconfirmed at this time). Today reminded me of the great things he did for this world, from surfing a hobie board, to sailing a hobie cat, and today seeing 20+ Hobie 16's out on...
