ILCA | REASONABLE TAKING SPEED


Recommended Posts

I have very much enjoyed my sailing.  Really fun.  And I am grateful to sail during COVID when racing has been limited. 

ILCA | Jibing Speed

As a ILCA sailor (and other one-design classes). I find the downwind jibing of the ILCA not represent the practical abilities of the vessel and ultimates results in a slug-fest due to the impractical fast speed by which the vessel jibes.   It actually jibs no faster if timed, practically than some of the other vessels offered.   It would eliminate the unrealistic jibing that occurs down wind and require more strategy then jibing 5 times in 5 seconds...and add to the strategy and enjoyment.  

I am anxious to hear other opinions and am more than grateful to share the venues with such great sailors.
