  1. Andrew,
    I recently discovered your Blog. I am totally caught up with your Rules to Sail By 2012. I raced a variety of boats when younger. I am now in my 70’s and two years ago discovered the challenge of model sailboat racing. I search for materials to help me improve my performance. So, when i discovered your Rules blogs, i quickly wanted them all. As you know that is a challenge. I am an officer in our model yachting club here in Tucson, AZ. I would like to be able to offer your excellent ideas to our 22 members. I have been able to obtain seven of the posts by scrolling thru all of your posts. But, that leaves me well short of the total you have published. I search out articles written specifically for model yacht racing. But, thus far i have never found your kind of advice. Can you help us?
    P.S. I answered your security question correctly. I am human.

    • Jerry.

      Sorry for my terribly delayed response. I will see what I can put together and get to you. Standby.

      I’ll also be giving a talk at the Arizona YC on March 12, so hopefully we can catch up with you all then.

    spend a lot of time writing, i know how to save you a lot of work, there is an online
    tool that creates unique, SEO friendly articles in minutes,
