Well, looks like a B6H2 ripping up wind.
looks like one of those square CST booms, Looks like a Dave A. mainsail. (Alexander Sails, AUS.).
Maybe attached to one of those new CST mast?

Hendo is correctamundo on all counts... now, we are trying to figure out how we can take that old vang contraption and convert it into some sort of beer dispensing mechanism for the trailer

We missed you guys at the Gorge. Two great days of sailing and it was finally coming in nicely when we left on Sunday.

The Pro Start says that USA 1189's top speed was 22.8 knots, against about 2-3 knots of current.

That is moving! Sounds like it was more moderate than last year where we were mostly blown out,which is good. Sorry we didn't make it... we were almost on our way when the cancel notice came out... hard to justify with only one boat making the trip. Next time we'll organize early and see if we can rig up 6 boats on Ron's trailer! We had a good SD session the first weekend and then did 4 days in Long Beach which was nice. Not gorge conditions, but we did see solid breeze on 3 of the 6 days.

Kris:

I am surprised by that speed number. I thought you were almost as fast as we were! Just kidding. We all had some great rides.

It was a fantastic three days at the Gorge. Three great boats (Goodson/Diercks, Bundy/Hanseler, Bersch/Vincze), lots of good boathandling and several good sessions (with breaks in between sunning on the beach) every day. We had several good sessions in 8-14 knots and then also 14-22 knots and 16-22+ knots. Lots of good learning done each session. Our boats all got well rinsed by the warm, fresh water too. Nothing like it.

It was great to see our good friend John Vincze back in the boat who travelled 19 hours from Colorado to join us. Thanks for coming, John

Too bad the racing was cancelled. Sorry that caused guys to decide to skip the trip. There is no equal to sailing in the Gorge!

Joe,

I reckon you guys we're going at least 30 knots. Maybe more. :-) I'm too scared for those speeds!

What a great place and group or guys.

new board vs old board

hopefully PETA won't get mad at us if we start slicing marine mammals in half like the AC72's did last summer

B6H2 Is back in the news! We now have the B6 winning the U.S. Nationals as well as the Canadian Nationals.
With a top team in Australia with a B6 it's only a mater of time another Nationals, and then the Worlds.
Thanks to Richmond YC for a Killer event. Sailing at it's best
