Re: Slow Racing or Fast Cruising?
Sometimes I feel like the weight thing is overblown (at least in PHRF racing) and it may seem more important than it is because the guy who strips out his cruising gear also tends to be the guy who gets his bottom cleaned, gets new sails and really concentrates on trim and improving his technique.
I also tend to be a more the merrier type of guy in terms of crew. Of course, my boat is heavy to begin with.
