Re: Keel shape and pointing
You say you are only getting 45 degrees out of her right now...if that is the case you must be getting absolutely buried right at the start! You can't hang with anyone right now?
No, we can't hang with a soul. Even if we get a great start, inevitably someone will quickly pass us to windward. I expect to get passed, as Bill's ranger 22 is the slowest boat in the fleet, but every single boat out points us.
The rest of the fleet is made up of a pair of J-29's, a pair of Ultimate 20's, a J-80, a Laser 28, and occasionally a J-24. We will have a Santana 20 starting in a few weeks that belongs to our women's group. Perhaps we can hang with a rotating crew of inexperienced women. Maybe.
