Alex, that looked like a normal sail in 15-20, not really a BFS for that boat. Tiny two foot waves, c'mon now....

Ok, she's definitely fast enough for sure.

Heh-heh. I told you Chall - Giu's good! What's your top speed again, Giu? 16 knots or something? It's freakin' fast whatever it is.

BTW - I still have NEVER truly dipped a rail on the S/V Smacktanic (thanks Chall)! We were very close that day with Charlie - but still didn't get it under even though we were heeling past 35 degrees. And I know it's completely inefficient and slow - but, hey, it's fun!

BTW - has anyone EVER held the rail of a C27 under? With the 7' of freeboard on these boats, I'm starting to wonder.

Charlie - what were those stogies of yours called? My 4 year old wants me to get him a box.

Smack, those were JR Alternatives to Rocky Patel Vintage '92's. I've since found many better smokes than those. The La Gloria Cubana torpedo I had last night comes to mind. I did score on some very good, very cheap Maduro's (dark and full bodied puro's) but they're sold out.

Well - they were sweet smokes, dude. Thanks again, Charlie.

Hey - in going back through the BFS stories of great sails it seems we have holes in certain areas. For example, what about the Gulfies? I've been following Jrd's and Bennyd's jaunt out of FL (technically on the Eastie side, but it'll do) - and that definitely looks tasty to me. Who else is out on the Gulf getting some big wind? There HAS to be someone out there!

Then we've also got the Supersouthies. Chall is waiting for his window in Sydney(?) - but are there any others out there throwing down in that crazy Southern Ocean? In following the Vendee - things look pretty nuts down there.
