    I was not aware that the SSS made rating adjustments to such boats. Power assist boats are not eligible for the overall trophy/season..... well a separate one I guess.

    The 3B Fiasco is a race and part of a race season. It requires a certificate that costs less than good dinner or day ski lift ticket and is good all year for all events. Quite a deal.

    Did they ding your rating for adding a spinnaker? If they did you should not take it unless you get a standard spinnaker pole to square back the sail plan. As it is you will not be able to sail...

    It's the max jib (105%) and a hybrid Code-0/A3. Basically a Code-o with a more fuller shape. In light close-reaching conditions I found leaving the jib up works well. Most of the time the jib...

    I believe CC is a very early generation design of a C40 too. Also, CC isn't rated using the water ballast which which change the rating quite a bit if included.
