The last tie Chillwales posted was the date of above, and has not logged in since august either. With that in mind, his boat name I believe is "Different Drummer". Not sure what a search will do, but he does fairly well racing here in the NW! He has a phrf of 81, which puts him in competition with some well sailed lighter smaller boats.

As a comparison, while there are not 1st 40's listed as racing in the local directory, some of the older 40.7's have a rating of 57 and 60, so roughly 20-24 secs a mile faster. Not sure how much faster a 1st 40 is in comparison to a 40.7. I believe faster, but how much per mile.......


She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
