New sail the -0

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

The foredeck apes are driving? Or what?

It doesn't appear anyone in that company has managed enough money to buy a sailboat yet.

Re: New sail the -0

Someone posted a video of a Melges 32 on that "other" site, sailing backwards under asym, doing like 5 knots too!... although photoshop seems to be what has happened in the above picture, as the bow wave is all wrong. Not sure how you put an asym up with a pole either.

I can't tell you how many advertising, videos, TV, and movies that had "sailboats" as filler, that were either floating dead in the water, or NOT sailing with sails up. Frustrating to see.

Re: New sail the -0

Editors like to have boats going from left to right. Often they will 'flip' the picture to do this. Here they have photoshopped (very poorly) the picture badly. A major push in China now is what to do with the vast amounts of money that people have made in recent years. Sailing is seen as exotic and indicative of real wealth. One reason for this is that you are only allowed to import new boats. There are a growing number of marinas in the country and most are two thirds or more empty.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.

I suspect that their "Wealth Management" may follow the same direction.

Re: New sail the -0

The spinnaker pole looks to be attached to the clew ... like a whisker pole .. heh. Tack is on the deck at the bow or stern, your choice.

Sexy six spreader rig!
