Post something here. A bunch of the F18 guys are out of Sail Newport and have been sailing lately.

Yes - Bob has defected from Hobie (in the F18 class anyway - I'm sure that he'll still have his trusty H16!)

I'm not sure why C2, the Wildcat is tearing it up over the other side of the pond. A years worth of testing and tweaking and they are getting some great results.

Yes I got a C2. It should arrive next week some time. It’s not an easy choice in the F18 class. I also have a Laser that I race in the spring and fall. Then there is the Hobie 16 which is still the main focus.
In a way I’d like to kick some butt in the F18 to make those guys eat crow when a 16 guy beats up on them. So how’s that for smack talk from a guy who doesn’t even know if his boat floats yet?

Wheew! Glad I wasn't spreading viscous rumors.

Who's going to be driving, you or Liza? A semi-local F18 team has done quite well since she got on the tiller and him running the front.

Doing Racine I assume?
