tomaz_423 PB,
If you listen to Giu's advices please take an extra boom or two with you You might need it. :-)
Take carbon boom to reduce weight and pack them low below waterline on windward side.

tdw Goodonya PB you old reactionary you. Sail well old chap, presuming we won't see so much of you, at least for a while, I'm going to miss our, cough, discussions and the reasoned and unimpassioned manner in which we settle our differences. SW is going to be lost without you, he'll have to going hunting liberals on his lonesome.

Right around the dial...promises slop, but nothing too brutal. He can use a lot of that wind with a No. 2 and the occasional single reef in the main. Nice. I forgot where he's going, but I suppose he could go a bit west than south and then tack back to close-hauled in from the SW.
