Yea D,looks like a great race course to sail waves and wind,other than the blind bunch missing the windward mark once the wind is out of that direction it looks to be a fun spot to sail,is that your club and is the wind usually blowing from there??

Yes this is were i sail. Wind is usuly this direction (offshore) or the other way (onshore). It is very rare we get wind speed like this. Usuly a lot lighter.

? to sails -


Is it posible to get a couple of comments to the difference between BG and Black Magic Sails.

Trim - ? Light wind? Overpowered?

Or is it just religion?

Thanks in advance

Yes you must worship Black Magic, all other religions are fake lol.

I think the playing field is very close and it comes to personal opinions.

Or maybe you could try evaluating sails and sailmakers by their track records--national and world championships won perhaps?

Hi All,

Received some bad news today, for all those who know Bill Curtis, he emailed me this morning to let me know that his beloved wife Rosemary passed away over the weekend.
She was a lovely lady
RIP Rosemary and our thoughts are with Bill and his family.

Im not nearly in the top ten - so comments from average sailors would be more worth. (And I expect that we have some average sailors in here , too... besides from the Captain of SuperComments)

Hi Guy's,

I've been using Power Sails from New Zealand and found them to be excellent. Delivery here to Australia is usually only a few days. Sails have won plenty of National and International titles.
