About twenty years ago the Dashews gave an account of a long ocean trip in their new yacht Deerfoot. They mentioned boat length and weight and three characteristic speeds that my Index of Sailing Speed predicted to the first place of decimals.. I cannot find that article. The first person who identifies it and emails me at email@example.com will get my thanks and an autographed copy of my new book Really Understanding Sailing. Or you can leave a comment.
Hi. I am Ivor Slater who wrote to a user group called the Yacht List (yacht_L) for a decade or so during the 1990s. I want people to know that I have put the stuff I used to write about into a book called Really Understanding Sailing. I’ll be starting a blog, and hoping to get in touch with old friends.
