    Taking nothing away from Pelagic's founder and all the work he's put into these products, the Pelagic computer seems to work better on heavier and more directionally-stable boats. Andy's post is not...

    SHTP in odd-numbered years, LongPac in even-numbered years. Confirmed in other threads.

    PHRF doesn't adjust ratings for perceived benefits, they adjust ratings for changes in observed performance. That's why to appeal a rating you submit race results. This is in their regulations.

    Thank you for your kind words.

    Is bicycle racing in general decline like sailboat racing has been? If so, they'd start looking for ways to keep the racers out there.

    OYRA and SSS have raced together to Drake's Bay for the last 6-7 years.

    Not sure if that will happen this year, since OYRA was not able to start their season. I haven't heard anything.

    Holy cow. Does the boat need that to reduce heeling or to add displacement (like the Mac26X)? If heeling, just sit on the rail?

    After yesterday, I can help you with the labels!
