How the fuck does people get 700 bucks in one day? I had to save for four months to get 500. Oh well, yesterday I got some clothes and the Hunger Games trilogy. Might not seem much, but more than 1000 pages worth of reading is going to give me a lot of entertainment. Oh, and they're in English.

2 X Good quality secondhand headsails (A light for 0-14knt and a mid range for 10-20knts) Both are North so I'm happy.

New tapered, continuous spinnaker sheets that haven't arrived yet. And a new spinnaker bag for the starboard roundings :D

I don't know if you've ever said, (and I'm sure nobody has asked).
What are those sheets supposed to be fitting?

Hehehehhe

This is a spinnaker sheet: Image


As for boats... I've got an Etchells, which is what the Christmas stuff is going on.

That's not my boat, but they're all the same so you get the idea.


I also sail on my dad's boat, a Hick 35.

And sometimes a Skiff 38.

That's odd, that spinnaker looks just like a hank of double-braided line to me. I like those sailing-craft though. Ever try to navigate using some of the ancient tools and methods? Nevermind, it would be off topic. Great pix, thanks.
