Broad Reach


I'm famous!

Broad Reach, the newsletter of the Force 5 Class, has reprinted my post  How Big Are Your Carrots?

No wait, it wasn't really called that, but it should have been. It was all about how to persuade sailors to come to your regatta.

Broad Reach is a very professional looking newsletter. Lots of pictures, interesting articles about regattas, interview with the North American champion, tips on how tight your vang should be etc. etc.  Great stuff!

Those Force 5 sailors look like they have so much fun.

Maybe I should switch from Laser to Force 5?

I mean, there are lots of reasons why Force 5s are better than Lasers. At least seven I can think of.

I like the looks of that winged Force 5 with the open transom and I like the big window in the sail!

Yes they were pretty cool weren't they. I'm not sure what happened to that rig. Brian Weeks, who had developed it, died since I wrote that 2008 post.

Yeah George, I cannot believe the Lime Green boat in the photo is a Force-5! Wow!

So the Force 5 going to be renamed the Carrot - have I got that right?

Uh oh, where's Joe?

Tillerman said...

No, no, no. The folk who sail Force 5s are way too sensible to allow anyone to change the name of their boat to something lame like Carrot or Torch.

Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio?

bonnie said...

Joltin' Joe has left and gone away. hey hey hey.

Tillerman said...

The horse has gone fishing for two weeks, I believe.
