A few months ago we got a cool note from local writer/editor Simon Hill. He had dug up an old Sailing World Article from October 1989 written by Don Martin and Michael Clements. Check out the link for the full text...just don't take all these tips to the bank as there's likely a good many that are out of date! It is pretty neat to see what was going on over 30 years ago though.
Independently, current Sailing World editor Dave Reed found a copy of the original artwork from this article, and kindly sent us the print. It's now framed and proudly displayed on the wall of the Kitsilano Yacht Club, with this article printed & taped to the back. Check it out next time you're at KYC!
