At 36 now! Going to be a great event. Look for updates on the Facebook Page, Twitter and Instagram. Scores will be posted on the Regatta Network site. There may even be some live feeds going on during the event. Yesterday 05:54:07

Chris, that Sunbird cockpit looks like a bathtub that wishes it could fly. But it is all about a boat that can take on any conditions for hours and several days, that you can be relatively comfortable in, that can be pushed off the beach!... Jan-31-19 08:04:15

Interesting. I attempted a model on balsa wood. The hull doesn't match the Force 5 though. My son is a pretty good carver so I'm going to need him to do the hull. I completed the cockpit, mahogany thwart, guntle, and drain plug. The... Dec-18-18 17:27:57

Hi John. One of the two happiest days of your life. I hope that when we next meet, we'll have time for a chat and a drink and talk about the way things should be. Thanks for your vision, your encouragement and sharing some of your wisdom. Tony Dec-14-18 01:17:15

Talk abut a great event. We had 17 Force 5s on the starting line this weekend. Two days of perfect wind and the usual shifts to keep it interesting. Some of the closest racing of the year. Also, as usual the best party of the year! Sep-24-18 13:05:56

As it turns out - we have a hurricane coming and likely this regatta will not run. But if it does it may be the fastest (shortest) ever! Sep-08-18 17:25:16
