Re: Proper winch technique?

Great question. It's not a matter of a more slippery jib sheet, as you want it to be as grippy as possible for both you and the winch.

Before you even get ready to start un-cleating or...

Re: Watches

You have to set the lat lons into it and is a pain in the ass, to be truthful, especially if you are on a trip. I have to admit, that it is usually easier to just look at the tide tables :D.

In open waters, the sailboat is the Stand-On vessel. If in a restricted channel or fairway and if the tugboat is going down bound with a following current, the tugboat would have right-of-way--Note:...

Re: Anyone completed ASA 114? Or 214?

I would agree with the above. Other than the differences in how to react to wind gusts, it was more about how to handle the boat for docking and anchoring.

Re: Anyone completed ASA 114? Or 214?

I did the catamaran course probably 12-13 years ago at BWSS in Lauderdale.

Given our experience level at the time, it was a really good course.

I do think there might could have been a bit more...

Re: stopping on a dime

Yes, you need to prepare first, in Scandinavia you will find that self-tacking jib is used on more boats than just Hanse.

I have permanently rigged barber/inner/outer haulers on my self-tacking...

Re: Closer to the wind question

6 inches is what we would consider "footing" for speed rather than max pointing. We would only ease the sail that much to accelerate out of tacks, or punch through some powerboat wake.

Re: Closer to the wind question

That depends on the particular boat and sail. For most boats that I have sailed, a 150% generally works best at about 5-6" off the spreader. If it is sheeted too flat, the 150% loses too much...

Re: Is a Vang Really Useful on a mid to Large Boat?

I fiddle with the sails. It isn't unusual for me to squeeze half a knot more out of the boat when I come on watch.

Crossing the Atlantic, if I can fill a watch bill with people like me we'll save...

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Guys, guys!
All this hair splitting over what?
They never crossed the finish line! They were 'dnf' before they could be 'dsq'-ed.
Who cares if they ran their motor the whole way?

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Running off, a spinnaker will tend to oscillate somewhat. An auto pilot will ignor this and steer a relatively steady course. A novice driver will tend to "chase" the spinnaker, aggravating the...

Ok, well, here is my take on this whole thing (after kicking it around for a while and reading other posts):

First, I think RD screwed up getting on that boat. I have been in that situation...

Re: Expected Cruising Speed?

The waterline is 35' 5" (35.4), so;

sqrt 35.4 * 1.34 = 7.97
