Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

I'm glad its not just me that finds this exciting.  

I nearly bought Strawberry Letter when she was recently up for sail simply because MB was coming back.

These are such neat little boats - I'd love to see the 1/4 cup revived (again) with MB in the pool.

Yeah, PYBC hosted a couple of years back but it's again dropped off the radar.  

Reliving glory days isn't everybody's cup of tea :-)

Interesting page if like 1/4 tonners

 

There a nz      www.facebook.com/NZ-14-Tonners-509576052707184     page being set up and the call is to revive the class like overseas.

 

How can you go past an ior vessel down wind kite up and death rolling and wondering is this going to end in tears??Got in this situation awhile ago,pole squared and down haul on tight main out and she started rolling,FAaark is it going to stop,turned to 1/4 the wind and she stopped,most fun i have had for ages not!

We used to  strap the spinnaker sheet well fwd to stop the kite oscillating,it certainly helped. When I asked a sailmaker for a quote for a "Bag" recently he said he hadn't  heard that term for a long time and had made nothing but asymmetrics for years.

Paul Whiting, Murray Ross, Richard Cleave, and Steve Trevurza I think.

Be pretty hard to get Paul back unless you can work miracles.
