I guess the what is the definition of "old Shoe"? One of the boats is less tha 5 yrs old, and is a DS Jeanneau, ie Surt that did the two day inshore combo.
But the juan de fuca race, vs the unlimited, not sure the difference, does seem to have "MOST" if not all of the 180 and slower boats, where I would fall with a 192FS, 210 NFS, any longer race I try to go FS where I can.
May have to look that one up. Kids know someone who did that course, I also know someone who did the inside short course too, so will talk with them too.
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
