SPEED

15kts if you play right will give you around 7kts boat speed......

Goodonya PB you old reactionary you. Sail well old chap, presuming we won't see so much of you, at least for a while, I'm going to miss our, cough, discussions and the reasoned and unimpassioned manner in which we settle our differences. SW is going to be lost without you, he'll have to going hunting liberals on his lonesome.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

PB,
If you listen to Giu's advices please take an extra boom or two with you You might need it. :-)
Take carbon boom to reduce weight and pack them low below waterline on windward side.
