A circumnavigation of Santa Rosa Island in the Florida Panhandle

Day One had us all starting at the Fort Walton Yacht Club in Chocktawhatchee Bay, sailing in rain out the Destin Pass into the Gulf of Mexico and then west in the emerald waters of the Gulf in a building breeze to the Pensacola Pass. Once through the Pass and across the finish line we were treated to a catered barbecue dinner and music. Most sailors spent the night at the camp ground at Fort Pickens (the infamous site of Geronomo’s imprisonment) with the luxury of having everybody’s camping gear... Read More »

Experience a Pulse on the Bay!

SAUSALITO — This new 20-foot model has the same well-engineered structure for folding the amas as the original Corsair, as well as a gin pole and tackle to raise the mast. The boat is also stable enough to be left afloat folded up, which many owners do in between sailing sessions to make getting underway that much easier.   Then there's the boat's performance. In moderate winds, the Pulse 600 is slippery and a joy to knock around in. In strong winds, the boat will be a veritable adrenaline... Read More »

Ronstan Pulse 600 takes on Sydney Harbour

  After a number of test sails where the man upstairs let us down with only 8-12 kts of wind, it was fantastic to finally get a sail on the pulse out in some decent wind and a bit of sea state to see how she really performed. We had the boat in 15-20 kts in and around Sydney Harbour and were able to push the boat well into the chop and even out to the heads. The reverse bows were effective in punching out through the waves however the extra volume in those large floats in the forward area is... Read More »
