Re: Harvest Moon Regatta

I guess very early morning, low jetties awash in a sea, only two on board for a overnight or longer passage after a similarly long race,...

Re: Harvest Moon Regatta

RTB, when I click on the linky what I see is the OUTBOUND track for the race itself. Is there a different place to go to that would have an inbound track for the post-race return home?

One of the...

Re: Guidance with Laser2 Purchase -Please help!-

My vague impression is that the Laser 2 was perhaps less rare in Europe than in the USA. Where are you, Cory?

Re: need help my brain is toast

I believe a one-degree bearing error at one nautical mile could put you just over a hundred feet off; but a five-degree error starts getting serious at a good 500 feet. With pencil and paper charts,...

Some of us don't have that chart, so we don't know the magnetic direction of the line made by the range itself. That combined with the perlorus bearing should give you the info to know what your...

Re: Tips for not getting cheated on fuel when chartering.

If the company didn't have its own fuel dock, maybe the price was higher because they charged a service fee? Or just maybe they were sloppy about recording from a previous charter or confused...

Re: Bart's Bash sailing event at your club?

We're doing it in the middle of nowhere, but don't expect to have anything like 25 boats, and so aren't bothering with the Guinness record aspect of it. It was already on one of our club's race...

Re: Sailboat without a mast

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

If so, then Rebel Heart was even less worth salvaging and wouldn't have had much chance of being worth the cost of salvage.

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

For what it's worth, here are my wild and crazy guesses about salvage:
$ 75,000 initial value of boat

If the Rebel Heart was sinking, albeit slowly, and was a thousand miles offshore, with no other boats capable of salvage reasonably close on its track, and the US...

Re: Sailing around the world on a Catalina 22 sailboat

Yeah, I'm thinking a Westerly 30 is perhaps the smallest boat that has headroom and durability enough for a troll to circumnavigate?
