Iíve been keeping a log since 2005 of days sailed and it works great for deciding on gear choices. Ken has me by 2 kg and 14 years, but I beat him by 3 days of sailing this year. Iím jealous of the days sailed through the winter though. Dec-Feb is too cold and wet here in northern CA, and since I coach football Sept-Nov. is shot so I piled up my 69 days March-Aug. Ken and I are very similar is sail sizes though. Trade in that 9.2 for a 9.8 and lose the 11.0 and we are almost dead even in sail sizes.
