    “Captain, our radar seems to be working fine while we’re sailing in Stealth Mode.”

  11. Brad Kerstetter 3 months ago

    Just another short sighted attempt at an eco friendly stealth submarine run by “sailors” unfamiliar with sailing. Bring the jib sheet over seaman!

    Head up a bit, you’re luffing.

  13. Peter Detwiler 3 months ago

    AAAh, actually, the seacock goes in the other direction, OK?

    Insurance company response: definite correlation between back-winded jib and submersion, however causality is still up for debate…

  27. Eben Kermit 2 months ago

    Watch me ‘roll tack’ this 35 footer… just like I did on my Lazer. Oh oh!

A Question for the Nation
The boat is a unique ketch that my dad — Jean Filloux — designed himself with a naval architect friend at Sparkman & Stephens to be built with a first-of-its-kind manufacturing method that Jean came up with.
Silver Mines
Just like in the Comstock Lode in Nevada, there's still a lot of silver to be won from the 2023 racing season. It's available by reporting the races you've already sailed in 2023.
