Re: Rankinglaskenta 2020

I trust that the boat name should never be the primary key. :-D

Re: Köysisuosituksia?

I have the feeling that it gets easier stuck than the knot. The splice makes the sheet thicker, and the splice is like a wedge that gets almost always stuck in the boom end. Of course this depends on the pole end and sheet diameter. Anyway, I'm planning to remove the splices and wichard shackles. I...

Re: Rankinglaskenta 2020

But now Pikku Myy seems to be listed twice there. Sorry for bugging you.

It explains it. Thank you for fixing it and updating the ranking.

I think they are:
Disks: Shackle guard
Balls: Ball stopper
You're precisely correct. :-)

Re: Rankinglaskenta 2020

Thank you. Pikku Myy is still missing the same race results.

I did send the results for all Subbota's races by e-mail to tulokset@fe83.org on 12.10. And I also resent the KoPu DH e-mail on 1.12. Haven't they come through?..

Re: Rankinglaskenta 2020

The ranking seems to be missing data from KoPu DH 6.9.2020.

Why splice? Either make 8-knot or pole knot, difficult to make the spinnaker-connection lighter.
Unlike the knot, the spliced eye never gets stuck in the spinnaker pole end.

Re: Köysisuosituksia?

Spinnuskuuteiksi ainoa oikea on tietenkin roblinen dyneemaytiminen päästä ohennettu: https://maritimshops.fi/fi/tuote/91583175/9518119521/h-vene-spinnaker-skuutti/45608762/1 Not only that one is expensive, but also it is difficult to splice on the thin end. I would take a braided 8 mm Dyneema and t...

Re: KoPun kaksinpurjehdus 6.9.2020

It appears that I haven't posted here. Luckily, I have notes. Better later than never. Obviously, there were two of us for the KoPu DH 2020 race - Masha and I. The racecourse was KoPu Tuesday Race D which greatly follows the HLKK racecourse 1. SW wind 7(10) m/s, easing as forecasted. We came to the ...

Re: Black FE83?

Observe some boats with dark blue hulls - they all look shabby after a few years. Every intense color deteriorates because of UV. Make it dark and you'll repaint it regularly. Also, it will be hot inside during sunny days, and small items left on the deck won't be seen as easy as on the white.

Re: RaceQs

I am using RaceQs since 2016. It's a pretty OK tool to analyze the race, especially when you still remember the race itself. Sometimes it's a pain in the ass to set up the racecourse, and there is no handling for changing conditions. But still, it's pretty useful as a tool to visualize speeds, angle...

Re: Keskiviikkokisa 9/20

Can you Alex share the Go Pro footage of the race in some media (Youtube?) What happens in fight club stays in fight club. Seriously, the lens of the forward-looking camera was full of water so there is nothing to watch. The cockpit camera primarily filmed how often we checked our hats. Some pieces...

Re: Keskiviikkokisa 9/20

Tervehdys, Yesterday we were: Patrik on the foredeck, Anna on the piano, Masha on the trim and I at the helm. There was a pretty strange wind before the start. I was following the wind development during the day, and we put G3 on the foredeck with no doubt. When we came out of the harbour, the wind ...
