Dude - you're in trouble now. On VDay no less!

Hey, chech, go to the BFS site and set up a customer profile:

Login : BFSshop.com

Then I'll email you directions on how you can order a free item in return for letting us use your Throwdown. It's tradition.

Check out these smokin' hot BFS Pit Ninjas! These are 3 real-deal sailing chicks...



...and a new addition to the BFS Hall of Fame.

I crewed with the two in the foreground on the Harvest Moon Regatta off-shore race this past fall. Beautiful - and hardcore.

This was taken in the HYC Midwinter Regatta a week ago (I wasn't there). I'll wait 'til it warms up so I can wear my banana hammock without getting frostbite.

What's up with this Smack - you smuggling female Muslim terrorists in on your boat? At least have a second shot where we can see them! Real deal sailing chicks are altogether too rare to go past unseen!

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Too true, dude.

Here they are in this past off-shore race we did:

Harvest Moon Regatta Throwdown


These chicks can sail.

A mayday call in the RNZ race - then they bring it home:

"Sinking faster than they could bail..." Serious stones. Wow.

Here's to the Kiwis!

Maybe a BFS on the sound tomorrow for the first of three Center SOund Series races, 20-30 knots winds......not bad for puget sound! now for George down in SF Bay........

Yes, we up here like our tall masts for the normal 5-10 maybe 15 knot wind days!

I know a couple with a C420mk II they bought down in SF, sailed it there, brought up here, main and a 110 was plenty of sail area.....up here.........how big a genoa should I go?!?!?! bought a 140 last spring....like it better than the 110!OLOLOL

I've always regarded a 155 as the working jib around here.

Assuming you have that ability, along with being on the lighter wt cloth side of things.......150% agree! Altho I do have a 3oz spin nylon 135 for when you do not see ripples on the water, amazing what the little thing can do in 1-3 knot winds!

Will try to take pics, aboard a Waquiez(sp?) with an 81 or so rating, a bit faster/bigger than my 192 28' boat!
