    Oh, the Newport 20 rigging went onto a pile at Rogue Rigging for recycling. Maybe ask Ryan about picking up some old stuff?

    Alan, I have a length of 1/4" forestay wire with a 1/2" eye spice that's at least 34' you can have. It's only 2 years old but broke at the swage...

    Greg, that just sucks. I'm so sorry. It doesn't, however, diminish you doing the race in very 'sporty' conditions.

    All the best to Bob and to the other racers who are toughing it out in those conditions. It's likely to be a long 24 hours for all.

    My understanding is that the miles still count. He is sailing them. No doubt about that! Now, if he gets towed in the last 50 miles, that seems...

    I had no idea! So my anomalous data point of one can't always be a given as future expectation. I guess it would be wise to remember this ;)

    Those conditions don't look too bad from where I'm sitting. We had consistent 28-32 knots for 36 hours or so of the 2017 LongPac. It seems like good...
