  1. hehe, it just means I don't need to work on my tacking!
  2. Yeah my brain went 8k for 1 knot is a deal!
  3. We got buried because we were trying to stay behind the line in the last 10 - in a smaller boat that's just dire. Surprised a general was not called as it was so obvious early on in the sequence. We'd been delayed already so what's another 10 min?
  4. Haha - Royal Navy: no sleeping below decks!
  5. Found someone now Cheers
  6. We've had one of our helm have to go in for surgery just before the race so are after an experienced helm to step in at short notice. PM me if interested
  7. We've had a hiccup with one of our Helm having to go for surgery just before the race so if you or someone you know (who can helm) would like to step onto a well sorted boat for this race PM me Thanks

    foredeck hatch

    After taking in about 5 buckets during the last Gold Cup I'm thinking we need a new hatch. Who has the biggest range and best support?? Any recommendations for brand? The existing one is perspex with alloy frame rubber seals about 500x700mm
  9. Hey I've got a spot available for one this weekend on Zero Tolerance. Experience pref but not essential Cheers Andrew 0274941247

    Hi team Just pulled an old air cooled wall/thru mounted unit off the icebox and would like input into best solution as these do not seem to be made any more. Options seem to be replace with isotherm unit which seems a bit more complexor chainsaw out old icebox and use a portable 12v unit. PS it's a racer that is cruised Thoughts?
  11. And yes, all I could do was shrug when boats started motoring back to the start line
  12. I have one very similar if not the same as the delta. Nice sail, nice foils. PM me if your serious and I'll take some pics

    Boat Dilemma

    My two cents having modded The Entertainer from bog stock and raced the hell out of her: go Scarlett. The keel makes a huge difference and She runs Masthead and fractional gear. They cruise better with the t-keel too. 930s are just so much bang for buck and lots of knowledge around which people are happy to share. They still get out in fair number too at times all be it in different configurations. Part of me is tempted to buy Scarlett...
  14. BOI regatta we had one dolphin rubbing on the rudder for about 30 seconds straight. Almost reached for a winch handle
  15. OMG, this is my new favourite thing!

    Dyneema Rigging

    Bugger, not so reassuring! I might take a section off and get it load/break tested. Can you help with that KM? As I said it looks in good nick

    You can steer with buckets in an emergency

    Dyneema Rigging

    Thanks The rig actually seems really solidly built and in good nick but it is getting a bit long in the tooth now for Dyneema if what you're saying about UV degraded strength is on point

    Dyneema Rigging

    Anyone know who did the standing rigging on High Spirits and what was used? It may determine how I sail the old girl. hehe Chur
