G, That is really a bad luck. Thanks god you are both OK.

You took Fred to sail your boat, now it is time for him to take you sailing his boat. I might be a very tight fit for you both in an optimist .

Glad no one got hurt. Just remember, that probably wouldn't have happened on a nice Formosa .

Probably not, but neither would 12 knots. I vote for 12 knots.

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.

tomaz - the Formosa is a running joke we have with Giu.

kananumpua - a preventer, also called a boom brake, basically limits the amount of travel the boom makes from one side to the other. Someone else may have a more technical explaination for you.

Giu, is that a carbon boom? If so, looks like someone blew the weave. Sorry to see that. At least it wasn't the stick.
