    Well we have been going for over a year now. 40 members with fleets of up to 20 racing every weekend and in the evenings through the week. I now also own a 95... The 65 is my favourite though. The 95 is an easier boat to sail and running is not as critical, the 65 is quite challenging as running is critical and errors are punished harshly. RC sailing is a much fun as the real thing but more intense somehow, everything happens so much faster. Well recommended

    Arise Sir Dalts.... Thank you boys for burying San Francisco.... The deck was so stacked against us that none of us thought this day was possible but good old kiwi ingenuity came to the fore..... Good to see that the talent can still out gun the wallets. Etnz swam against the rise of arrogance that flowed from the other teams.. None of whom was prepared to think outside the box and advance sailing. Interesting to hear that Dalts wants to bring it all together and use isaf to make sure that the Americas cup is a sport again... It is a privilege to lift the cup not a right... Well said old boy.

    Sailing the new v6 df 65.... It's good, but no quicker than the v5... We now have a regular group of 7 or 8 racing and we are just about to start evening racing mid week... Not bad from nobody 3nmomths ago That's the beauty of the little dragon force. Ownership is easy.
  15. Agree with ER doctor... It pays well and always an asset in any sailing situation Sure its hard to train but worth it in the end.... Also helps you marry well
