Profile Information

Profile Type:
Sailor
Homeport:
St. Thomas
About Me:
avid sailor: either cruising or racing. Lived aboard some years ago and would do it again. Live in the warm weather year round, spend a month or so on Cape Cod each year. Have a number of interests besides sailing, as long as they are in warm weather. I am a self employed professional so I have the means and the time to sail.
Current location:
St. Thomas
Destinations visited:
Lived aboard RI, NY, FL and USVI. Regattas throughout New England and the Caribbean, particularly Antigua.
Looking to:
Spend more time sailing down island, south of Antigua preferably as I have not seen those islands yet.

I'll probably run outside as much as possible. Here to VIrginia, out again at M oorehed City, then back in again in Jacksonvile or St. Augustine. I know what you mean about that temperatuyre drop. RIght after labor day. I'm reallylooking forward to going where it's warm all the time.

"Well at least you’ve narrowed it down to the Genoa. I doubt here’s any issue with the hull or running gear. Nor do I think the slight list you have will have an impact either as many boats have the same based on how full the water and or…"

"In the meanwhile, I performed some sailing tests trying to be as impartial as possible. I was sailing close hauled on the starboard and port side. I used the autopilot steering the boat at 37 degrees to the apparent wind. Apparent wind was 12 to 19…"

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"

"It is only when sailing close-hauled. Unfortunately, this is the only course, where performance really matters. I‘m going to perform two tests: - Sailing with genoa only (track cars on the same position). In this case any (unequal) trim…"

"Our 43 had a shaft drive. Depending on how much water or fuel that was in her she would sometimes have a very small imbalance. Nothing that would cause her to sail unevenly. Do you have the problem on all points of sail? Is it more on any particular…"
