Can we arrange to have a boat rigged on shore at the regatta with the proposed outhaul sleeve so everybody can try it?? I have one of the original demonstrators but you would have to say.. "Well it is almost like this one but the one up for a vote is a lot better." If the sailors got to pull the outhaul and watch it effortlessly ease in almost no wind they would all be for it...I think. I will not be there to set up the demonstration myself so I cannot whine if nobody else has the time either. Note: there is a Laser regatta in Austin March 25 and 26. The old guys have agreed to sail in the junior regatta to give the kids a deeper fleet. I will sail unless they need a signed release from my mom or dad.
