"Congrats on your new cascade!!!! they are awesome boats! I am doing alittle bit of work to mine i will post some pic's! possible thinking about selling im listening to offers. This is a Cascade 36 hull number…"
What a great time! We placed 2nd in the Kilo division on my buddy's Harding Force 50 "Luna Sea". The only one to beat us was Patsy on Talion, a *beautiful* Gulfstar 50 Sloop also from Portland, now based in La Paz. Will post more later.

"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…"
"Sounds like your rigging may be in need of tuning?????
(Owned B43#19 for 10 years), Sailed from Mass to Tampa to Bahamas with it, great boat, no major issues at all. Boat has flat bottom basically so no need to put rails in water. I found it a very…"
"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
