But before you can sail, you have to get the boat measured and weighed and the sails measured and stamped. One design racing means all the boats are identical, so the first boat over the finish line wins. No PHRF time handicaps for us!
Here's Y2802, our boat, weighing in.... this is always a stressful time because the boats have to weigh a minimum of 500 pounds. It's an advantage to be as light as possible, but not underweight because then you have to add lead - a big headache.
