Hopefully CP is NOT on meds for the high BP IIRC he has, or the cuban is NOT causing issues...........

Some take the BFS a bit too serious IMHO!

Irritating ain't it?

Folks who read this thread that have half a brain can see the purpose for it. Those who might read it and sail out into a storm in an under equipped boat and without the skills to survive are Darwin candidates anyway and will find a way whether it's by sailing or not. That or they're too stupid to survive regardless. This is a fun thread for some of us who enjoy pushing the limits during a spirited sail. If that ain't you, read or post no further. If it is you, enjoy. How simple could it be. To bash a person because of their position on this is ludicrous and shows you to be the hater you are... Get a life already.

Smack, figured you'd like this one - interesting experience for my first time racing an IOD... I believe the upright one on the right is us - pic is from scuttlebutt, racing in our IOD Nationals

Also included is a pic of what these boats took like in calmer weather!

Holy crap, Ste! That looks sick! What were the conditions?

BTW - nice work keeping your stern planted.

Here's another little reminder of the importance of the tether - and how quickly things can go silly.

Gotta go back to the party. See you guys in a few days.

Reminds me of a simple club race down wind start a few years ago off Cleveland. Afterguard picked up on black horizon (20 miles) and the skipper called to get the kite off the deck and douse the # 2 we were using to maneuver. By the time the gun cracked, we were main alone at 10 knots with water spouts behind us. Five boats shredded kites and two kevlar mains were torn. We won. Lot of kilobucks passed the sail loft floor that day. What a ride. We saw daylight between the keel and the rudder of the Norlien 41 behind us.
