Many of our skippers, plus the C36, came up with all sorts of different improvements, including purchase
amount and NON swivel blocks. Ya tink?
If I ever get around to it, I'll just do it all outside the boom. One of these days, when I choose to again compete against all the almost semi-professional racers in our local C34 fleet, who are really, really good.
But I think, for me, those days are over. I've had my fun and will continue to race
in the Cruising Division. Seems another mate and I share the "Cup" every other year.
Of course, I get the ODD years. Think he's made any fun of that???
