Anyone interested?

I have an interesting dilemma.  3499 credits and what to buy.  At the moment I think I am going with Foils, Code 0 and Light sails.  thoughts on hull polish over Light sails?

I'll start the rankings when I get back to work on 27th Dec.

Cheers,

TR

Went for the same and had just enough for heavy air.  Just my luck it’ll suddenly turn into a light upwind drifter :p
Committed too early eh?!? I'm making plans, but not committing to selection just yet. 

Does anyone know the wind range of the light air sails? I feel like I'm cheating, have consulted the oracle called PredictWind. LoL

If you go into the Zezo page for the Sydney Hobart http://zezo.org/sh/chart.pl? 

Look at the upper left of the screen there is a polars button.  You can select your options and the wind speed and see what sails will be optimal for what angle.

Be careful, you can end spending a long time playing with theses.

Good info there. Now, due to cost constraints, tossing up between Code 0 and Light Wind sails. Foils are go at present. :)

I'm in for Virtual S2H , back after a long break, 192 days break according to Virtual Regatta. Good to see some of the old regular SA crew again! Good luck all. Did you get a real yacht club or are we still using Savannah Yacht club?
