If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Woah Tom!!!!! Now that's some serious heel!

Were you on that boat? The first 10 seconds are always the most fun.

I would have said the Horn until I saw that Biscayne photo. Now I'm not so sure . . .

Na, Hinnerk, Hummel, Hummel. Ich wünsche Dir gute Reise und ein glückliches Heimkehr. Bestell ein schönes Gruß an Nordfriesland als Du vorbeifährst.

I have been like that MANY before 30 when we kept the boat in Greenport now that i am over 50 i pretty much try REALLY hard to NOT allow it to happen as it gets freaking costly and people get hurt

And they took a lot of area OUT of the head (FATHEAD) and put it back in the bottom so its a bit harder to happen and now we race W/L and there's no reaching leg which also helps

I wish somebody would've been out to get a picture of Oh Joy when we laid her over. I do remember stepping from the deck to the side of the mast and then back when she stood up. Not another single boat was out there that day though... I'm always amazed how high the boats stay in a knockdown...

I don't get it. How does one find them selves in this state. Oh never mind, now I remember the time I fell 50' on a free climb, and then there was the whitewater thing that trapped me under logs until I almost passed out... Ok... now I see. Nevermind. We all get close but somehow live to tell the tale.

Hmmmmm.... wonder what is in the cards for me sailing?


Peace,

The guys and girls who race deep in the Southern Ocean with their kites up night and day get my vote. The coverage of the Whitbread and Volvo races was super scary.

There is no way I would do that even without the icebergs.

This looks like the most unpleasant boating experience. And they say the New Jersey waters are crowded!!!!
