August 28th, 2018I got an excellent deal on hull #163 (obviously used) at the beginning of the season. She came with the original Gaastra sails which were crisp, but a little “dry” I would guess (I estimate they’re 7-8 years old).
August 08th, 2018Extremely gusty but great fun and practice nonetheless.
July 27th, 2018I’m a long time sailor who got his first taste of sailing in a fair sized lake on Manitoulin Island in Ontario Canada as a kid. The first boat that I ever soloed was a Force 5 from AMF at 12 years old.
June 28th, 2018West Coast Weta Happy 10th Anniversary! It was 10 years ago today that our beloved Wetas arrived on the west coast of the US. Ten boats (#148 - #157) arrived via container to Richmond Yacht Club to nine owners that had never seen one or sailed one.
June 21st, 2018After I caught my breath and climbed on top of the bottom of my capsized boat, Puppy Dawg, in the middle of the Port Mansfield Channel, I reflected briefly on the day and how I ended up in this situation.
