Re: Full Keel
No Paulo, I'm just pointing out that once again facts prove you wrong. Besides, if the boat was well sailed it wouldn't be midpack, it would be first (on corrected time)
If the owner was best friends with the handicapper, the boat could be badly
sailed and still be first (on corrected time). That's just how the system works.
The fact is that this very old design full keel boat (is it built from wood?) is sailing boat for boat better than bigger more modern "faster" boats.
It would be nice if that were true.. but it isn't. Never mind...
