Re: Cheap Classic Plastic smokes the fleet in 2013 Down the Bay Race

Here is what it looks like when a $10K, low-tech, 35-year-old J/24 planes past your $300K Open 60-styled boat incorporating all the lastest technology and electronics (different race, same conditions and same effect):

The $20K 30-year-old Hobie 33 would also spray you with its bow wave as it passed you...
