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!

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!
