    +1 WS. That other bit is too complicated and corporately financial and shit.

    Besides, I'll still call it "Mr. Hands" (oh, NOOOO Mr. Bill!), like I did the J/111.

    That's kind of the point behind the name if I understand the story correctly.

    No doubt. But when I see it referred to as IH, I can't help thinking International Harvester.

    The boat's a rocket and now with the sail inventory filled in with a MH Genoa and a proper Code-0 it will do much better in the forward of the beam conditions.

    I guess the win in the LA TransPac wasn't good enough for the owner.
    Ouch Bob…. harsh.

    In 2010 we were in the middle of a four hour binge where we averaged 16.4 kts. Limit showed up on the horizon, passed about a mile to weather of us, and disappeared...all in less than 40 minutes. That is an amazing boat in the right hands.

    I think its great to have a program that's geared to win some races and represent the Bay Area.

    A number of the current roster sailed together on Criminal Mischief and they kicked ass on the Pac Cup in 2010!

    Now if they can beat Limits time of 6d 16:19:00 that would be a statement.

    That's good to hear (the Corinthian crew). I got a kick out of seeing a handful of socially-challenged shorthanders (said by another one) work together to get such a good result.

    "I wanna steer."

    "No, I wanna steer!"

    "Me first."

    "But I ALWAYS steer on MY boat!"

    "You single-hand."

    "Yeah SO?"

    (etc.)
