    Laser Camping

    Dennis, That set-up is EXACTLY the kind of thing I have been planning. The more I talk about this (around home club ect.) the more I hear people have done stuff like this, which is encouraging. Heard someone sailed from Kingston, ON to Main Duck Island, which seems like it would be...

    Laser Camping

    My sister does a bunch of canoe tripping and she had some waterproof barrels... I was thinking of duct taping that to the mast (in front). Travel light, ala hammock, hatchet and food!. my only concern is figuring out where to stay and where to put boat.... I know in the shushwap lakes in...

    homemade dolly circa TwentyTen

    Sorry to say, I have seen sturdier designs from PVC.... and none have lasted longer than a year. Not even ones for Optimist sailboats.

    zhik sizing

    Ken, I'm 150lbs and 5'11 and I picked out the same wetsuit except in superwarm and size 3 power pads.... they have loosened up a bit over the few times I have gone sailing... also wet the material seems to streach a bit more. Think I would rather have the power pads on the tight side than...

    Sailing in strong wind

    Best thing i ever learned from sailing when it is windy: 1. pull your cunning ham all the way. 2. set outhaul based on wave conditions. 3. go block to block with your mainsheet. 4. Tighten the vang past block to block. This means when your sail is in all the way you are pulling on more...

    carbon top section

    Carbon top sections suck they shouldnt change it, i would have liked it a while ago but now i can just see that it would change the technique in heavy air so much that it would be not good. If you can't handle the radial in heavy air sail a different boat or hike more

    Mark 5 vs Mark 6 sails

    yeah the mark six sails depower more, but the mark fives are faster in light air, there is a reason heavier radial sailors bought up all the mark fives when they stopped making them, ive been told that fogh bought a bunch of them as well as the rooster guy, but those may have been rumors
