Re: FinLYS-sääntö 2017

I would say its a step in right direction. At least in Estonia. Estonian offshore committee decided to throw out ESTLYS in Moonsund regatta, witch is biggest offshore sailing regatta in Estonia. ESTLYS use in club regattas will be decided within clubs.

70 dB should be as loud as vacuum cleaner. I was considering buying this, but decided to fix my Wallas 2000, since I like it quiet while sleeping. Got it working, but since ignition coil timer is toast, I will have to connect it to manual pressure switch. I have not yet tested it on the boat, but it...

Another question: Since we are looking for used racing sails, can you tell me what can be the maximum P and E for a mainsail. I don`t mean class rules, but what would be the maximum I can fit. There is one mainsail for sale in Estonia, but it is few cm over-sized. So I was thinking to buy it, if I c...

Thanks Unfortunately I can not start doing prep work yet, because my boat is in Porvoo. So my plan is to sail her to Estonia in spring as soon as ice is gone. And then lift her out and start working. Has anybody used different profile than 65a010? I was thinking about 0012, however I do not want to ...

Are there any pictures of serious racing FE83 deck layout?

Also I was thinking, that if I must glass over and fill the low spots on my keel anyway, it would be good idea to profile it also. Can someone recommend what profile I would need to use to make templates?

Ok, I was thinking about using Polaris medium genoa as G3.
Do you sheet G3 inside or outside of shrouds?

I noticed your victory at BOW 2011, Edasi is by far the fastest Polaris in Estonia, or was, they moved to 34.7
Your win there is probably main reason I started to look into FE83.

What would FE genoa3 measurements be? And is tuff-luff allowed in class rules?

Greetings from Estonia

Hi I am Ülari, from Estonia. New owner of FE83 Little Wing. It is a early model, with stringers not reaching bottom of the bilge, that is something I plan to fix first. My goal for next year is to to a bottom job, fill in unnecessary through-hulls, find good used sails and race as much as possible (...
