Anyone know the #'s for an FX-One and the 17...both single with no spin? Maybe we can compare the two at the Frayed Knot regatta if KB decides to show.

69.97 w/o the chute...still faster than an 18.

Karl is transporting the Clear Lake contingent of six Waves, and racing one.

Pre-registration is now available on our website. :D

If there ain't gonna be no 17's, then I might have to bring either a 14 or 16, dammit. How about a boat count, Eaton?

Now you got me thinking of bringing my 17 . . . .

Just to kick Mork's ass for being late with the Hotline postage payment.

It's only 890 miles. :shock:

302 pounds-uni
327 pounds-uni + spi
363 pounds-uni + spi + wings

But as John pointed out, I'm rockin a Wave that weekend. I tried to get out of sailing the Wave earlier today, but CW would have none of it. :D

Honestly with out the chute I think a H17 would beat the pants off of an FXone. Downwind I think you guys would probably be faster. It's a fricken pooch running just the main down wind.

You've never sailed a 17, have you?

This is a 17 upwind:

This is a 17 downwind:

Class dismissed.

You guys round the mark and go dead downwind. If I do that it just bobs, in anything short of a hurricane I'd be in a world of trouble. Gybing downwind under just the main is painfully slow too. LONG LIVE THE SPINNAKER!

Last year Wrinklie beat me up pretty good, and I had the chute. In my defense I was uber green on the boat, and the wind was at best frustrating. :oops:

I swear to the wind gods that when Wrinklie sails downwind, he sails backwards. What I mean by that is that instead of the wind flowing from the mast to the leech, it flows from the leech of the sail to the mast. I tried following him downwind once and could not believe how deep he sails.

Matt,

Gawd, that was just too funny.... Made me spew all over the screen AND the keyboard.

I'll be sending you the bill for a new keyboard. :lol:
