Hello, Nacradude, and welcome.

Richmond is where I grew up. Great city! Are you sailing on the Chesapeake?

Of course, I like Hobies...

Yeah, I sail on the Chessy out of Deltaville. I belong to the Fishing Bay Yacht Club and race for this season on a Tartan T10.

Hobie sailors are the best, they are so far behind us we always get the best seats at the bar.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you posting here. I've seen some Tartan T10s advertised on certain websites. Are they strictly for racing?
regards,

Yea, not a cruiser for sure

The T-10 has about 5'-5" head room below, and for me, a cruiser is a boat I can stand up in and I'm 6'-1". Fast boat though, it PHRF's at around 128 I think. My cruiser is a soon to be maxed out C&C 27 with a PHRF of 192. I'm going to kick a little ass in C fleet next year.
