Re: Sailboat Racing meal on the rail [Re: peconic]

We raced on the J120 last year, the asymetrical kites are fun, they had one on the J33 we raced too.

My husband and his brothers bought the Islander 37 as a hull and deck. They cut in all the windows and hatches, put in the interior, pored the lead in the keel, put on the toe rail, etc. It was a big project! But the boat is solid glass, no core, so it is a very seaworthy boat and you don't have to worry about rot. It is a really nice cruising boat.

My friends Islander is showing it's age now...
It's out of the water this year because of big time blistering...
I don't know if that happens in fresh water, but on a 30+ yr. old boat in saltwater, it's a big problem...
(the only "rot" you'll see on an Islander, that hull is solid as a rock!)...
They are repairing all the blisters and removing the all the old gelcoat & replacing! hull & deck... Big job! esp. the deckwork...
and he and his brothers are doing the work themselves...
The boatyard want's more to do the work than the boat is worth in today's market...

I like them cold as well. But even with leftovers I'll not reheat the meat preferring to eat it cold.

I agree with sandwiches on sub rolls cut into short pieces. When I'm racing I want something I can hold in one hand and that won't drip on me or the deck.

Fruit is nice, especially between races, as long as there are plenty of paper towels to clean up drips. I would rather have carrots, celery, and sliced apples.

I had two decades on foredeck before moving to the afterguard. Anything that can be slipped on is a safety hazard. Also, anything that slows down the cockpit is rough on the foredeck.

Spiffy food and drink can wait until after the finish.

sail fast,
