That dude is the exception that proves the rule. The boat was born on SA, and this is still where owners go to find crew, where crew talk about the best methods to sail the boat, and where a lot of development happens. Since so many FT-10 owners and crew got to know each other here in the forums, they’ve found it much easier to become friends on the race course. Today we salute Bulga Naba, the new Pacific Coast Champion, as well as the Sydney Anarchists for kicking ass in the winter series. Congrats also to Ullman Sails for jumping hard into a fleet where Quantum has a head start and taking 1 and 2 at the PCCs. Make sure to check out a good report of the recent championship, held at Long Beach last weekend.
The FT-10 class is obviously filled with SA’ers, though the owners of a new one that arrived in the Midwest the other day looked at one Anarchist like he was an alien when he asked them some SA-referencing question. “Sailing what?”
