Header Photo: Bermuda Fitted Dinghy under Spinnaker
I've featured the Bermuda Fitted Dinghy several times in previous Earwigoagin posts. From observing the photos of Fitted Dinghies racing there seems to be two odd traditions concerning the spinnaker; one of the crew holds the spinnaker pole against the mast (no pole fitting), and the pole is thrown overboard when reaching the leeward mark.
Bald but my eyebrows are growing at a prolific rate. Sailed Windmills and Y-Flyers in the 1960's. Founded Miami University (OH) sailing team. Sailed International 14's and Lasers in the 1970's. Sailed International Canoes in the 1980's to mid 1990's. Sailed Classic Moths since 2002. Enjoy boatbuilding though I'm very, very slow at it (the Internet doesn't help matters). Name in real life: Rod Mincher
After choosing this username (Tweezer is the name of my Classic Moth), further research on the Internet turned up that Tweezerman is a corporate name for a line of pedicure products. Let me emphasize that I do not work for, nor endorse these products.
