Re: Interesting Sailboats

As I said, it will come as no surprise to anyone, including Canadians, that many Americans and others conflate Canada with the U.S. all the time. Canadians lament and ridicule this practice,...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Canadian firm, during their prime, they're currently based in the "province" of Rhode Island, as part of U.S. Watercraft. But it's common practice, both in the U.S. and elsewhere, to conflate Canada...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Puzzling. I don't understand the discrepancy. If you go to the following page, and select IRC-2 from Résultats généraux, you get a different scoring, with the SF3600 taking the overall:

4ème...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Sunfast 3600 took the overall win, and looked pretty consistent - 1st and 2nd places, with the throwout being a 3rd in the final race. That 11th place and the three 4ths didn't help the A35's cause....

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Sorry, meant "effort" on an ongoing basis - i.e., as in "you gotta keep 'em separated." I was aware that a considerable amount of effort went into trying to resolve the problem, prior to the final...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

When I read the JPK blog account of the regatta, they made it pretty clear that the boat was fast and very competitive. What let them down were:

1. Jib block failure.
2. Jib clutch failure....

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Usually when we are talking about adventure yachts for high latitude sailing, we are focused on French-built aluminium boats of 13M or more. Here is a video about UK sailor Roger Taylor's "new"...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

It looks like their verdict is very clear: The JPK 1080 is fast. Very fast. In fact, very, very fast. :D

To summarize the blog regatta round-up: On the delivery trip from Lorient to Trinité,...

I will personally and forcefully oppose any such bashing. Bashing folks is never what this thread has been about, and now is no time to start. :)

I hate to say this, but... those are interesting boats. :eek:

For all the wrong reasons. Ouch. :laugher

My bigger fear is that Paulo is cruising his boat in warm weather. From where I sit -...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Bob - Agreed, and several people sailing J/70's have told me the same thing. Not entirely sure what the fleet sizes will be in LIS - at KWRW and Charleston, J/70's have been the dominant fleets,...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

If you've sailed M24's then you won't have any problem with the J/70. Indeed, you'll be surprised that you're not in major pain at the end of the day, from not being draped over the lifelines for 4...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

If you like to poke and prod, then you must acquire a wok immediately, if you don't have one already. It is the prince of poking-and-prodding cookware. Plus you get to turn the flame on "Maximum"...

Out here in elitist New England, I served up a bowl of white bean cassoulet with tempeh and shallot confit for dinner, which I made in the slow cooker Sunday. While the tempeh looks rather...

If one wants incivility, then one can hang out at Sailing Anarchy (as I do, under the same nom-de-Web) and put up with the comments/rants of that site's resident wags / know-it-alls.

Re: Viko 30s, the first of a new series, a change in paradigm.

Re: Jpk 10.80

That design also enables them to run the transverse jib track further inboard, making for a very tight sheeting angle upwind, something we've seen evolve in the TP52 class. The...

How much more do you think the RM 850 will cost than the Elan 320? If they are close I would go with the RM. Otherwise, I will continue to lust after the Elan. I'm one of those small-to-medium...
