  1. Yeah, they need more teams competing . . Bermuda was actually pretty well done in a number of respects . . And it would be nice if they could pry the event out from the grubby hands of the billionaires. And that won't likely happen either.
  2. That leading boat is a J-29. We have three of them in the Club now. They are quick, with a PHRF rating of about 115.
  3. From two days ago, our first race of the season . . part of the fleet Sandusky Bay, Ohio
  4. That system looks downright mean . . Stay safe !!
  5. Amazing that they did not lose that boat - it took fast thinking and quick work by a lot of people to save it. Kudos to all of them.
  6. Demand for sailboats is also very high in the US, and younger families are joining sailing clubs.
  7. California gets a bad rap - huge numbers of great people there . . https://www.latitude38.com/lectronic/san-francisco-sailors-conduct-ocean-rescue-new-zealand/
  8. There were big puffs in those low clouds - lucky I just had a No. 3 up. Sandusky Bay, Lake Erie Stop by for a sail some time (If the US ever gets its COVID act together - not looking good right now)
  9. If the pin/key come loose lots of props will work fine in forward gear, but . . . if reverse will spin themselves right off the shaft in no time. Don't ask me how I know.
  10. That boat looks pretty flash to me . . I'd say just go and sail your brains out. Well, maybe not like this . . .
  11. Fair Winds to ya . . . get out there and sail
  12. Who knew ? I'll have to be sure to attend to that with my next super jacht.
  13. As most of you know, these electronic flares are now legal in the US - I have one on my boat. It is quite bright and floats. No way in heck would I ever hold up a magnesium flare on a pitching boat as it drips molten metal, and I am trying to fix something and/or render assistance at the same time.
  14. Well, I dunno, but the bike/walking path on the San Fran Golden Gate bridge is stunningly beautiful. Actually, when I did it during the 2013 AC I bumped into some Kiwis, they were easy to spot with those silver ferns on the bike bags. I kiddingly asked the bloke which of the New Zealand teams he was with - but all he said was "We are the real Kiwis!!"
