    Rapido Trimarans - 2 x New Folding Models Coming !

    It's a cruising boat. You could buy a used ORMA for the same price if you want to go MUCH faster. Who cares?

    New Hugo Boss Spotted

    I think there is a non-rotating one-design rig option with spreaders but nobody uses it.

    Aluminium Cats, any opinions?

    http://sailingmagazine.net/article-1794-explocat-52.html Displ. 41,887 lbs http://sailingmagazine.net/article-2093-leopard-50l.html Displ. 41,888 lb. http://sailingmagazine.net/article-1924-outremer-4x.html Displ. 16,400 lbs. http://sailingmagazine.net/article-1842-hh55.html Displ. 31,967 lbs. I don't think the weight is worth it unless you specifically want it for high latitude sailing.

    Details? Sounds interesting.

    Cat tails from over the horizon

    The halyard setup looks like it could be an issue. Shouldn't there be rollers instead of just rings ("frictionless"). Checkout the TS5. http://www.marsaudon-composites.com/en/ts5/

    You might want to look up F18 class rules.

    Hopefully they're for a live internet feed so we can sit on our couches and criticize his sail trim!

    Ultime / G-Class Development

    A few years ago the Ultimes kept Spindrift out of a race or two by limiting crew to 6. Spindrift said they couldn't sail with the full main with only 6 (too much dump/trim) so they wouldn't race. They really need to retrofit bikes imo.

    Nobody wants you here. Go away and don't come back.

    Heavy Weather Sailing

    Falling down in the end zone is quite good.

    what is it?

    The mast into the bridgedeck in great too. Halyards right at the wheel.
