Seawind 1600

Writing about Belize and the marked lack of nav aids there (p.24, Belize on Two Hulls) got me thinking about some of the nav aids I’ve encountered elsewhere and how the memory of those same marks and buoys has stuck with me over the years. In this I

Belize on Two Hulls
In my experience, every charter has a kind of a theme to it, often encapsulated in a single moment. For me, during a recent weeklong charter off the coast of Belize that moment came toward the end of our first day out. We’d left the Sunsail base (sun

It’s hard to be sure when things started to change, but I am pretty sure it was the evening of April 20, 1993. As the sun set, spluttering and sizzling into the Atlantic, the 86ft catamaran Commodore Explorer crossed an imaginary finish line near Île

A Long RORC 600

Mainsail Trim 101
It’s easy to assume accurate mainsail trim is only of concern to racers, but nothing could be further from the truth. Aside from increasing boatspeed, a well-trimmed main will reduce heel, minimize weather helm and decrease leeway. The result is shor
