    C-Class Little Cup news

    HOT OFF THE PRESS.... Rumours of a "friendly" exhibition C Class regatta in Canada in September 2018!!??!! Could be a chance for the class to become relevant again? Let's see who comes out of the woodwork...

    what is it?

    29erF

    moving up from a 420

    To the OP, OK maybe I'm biased, but go 29er for a year (you're fine at 300 lbs combined - I sailed at the Gold Fleet level at 340 lbs!!!). Maybe 2 years in 29er, then 49erFX for a year, then 49er. US Sailing has a really sweet ODP program with camps, training and development. Plus once you're in the 49er or FX, you can train at Oakcliff. Or you can buy a Melges E Scow. Your choice! And to echo Reht's comment, you can DEFINITELY car top your new 29er!! (And your 49er for that matter)
  4. Couch, there are some guys in Oklahoma with a fleet of old 49er's. GIven the sparsity of old gear, they may be interested in your old mast. Drop me an email and I can connect you if you want to get rid of the thing...
  5. Only one way to find out!

    Laser 2 spreader advice/help please

    Have you tried asking Fogh Marine in Toronto, ON, Canada? Or maybe there's a dealer in Ireland who can replace the spreader for you...

    ....got stung by the 'WASZP'?..OD foiler...

    I think I was one of those guys out that day. I got to try the Waszp in NPT during foiling week and clearly got stung. I went home and made the $1,000 deposit online. I'm in Canada - any other Canuckistanians get stung? Let's go race next summer!

    Team NZ

    Anyone see this from Burling at the Sail Auckland 49er event: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QkgEty3RTk What struck me the most is how much Burling wanted to avoid the topic of actually being the ETNZ helm. And he, in my mind, made it clear that Deano is still potentially part of the picture. Maybe he was just being political to cover his arse?

    Team NZ

    http://www.sailing.org/worldcup/news/39255.php Fresh off convincing wins in Rio, looks like Burling / Tuke won't be attending the ISAF World Cup finals in Abu Dhabi... their young-gun countrymen Hansen-Porebski will be there in their stead. Also, Nathan and Goobs won't be at the finals either, also allowing their younger compatriots to have a go... Potential conflict with Sydney ESS preparations? Other Cup business/training?

    59er XX

    Pitch Pole Skiff Products (aka 49er.ca) stocks 29er hiking straps in Montreal. Price list can be found at: http://www.49er.ca/shop/29er/ (sorry for the shameless plug). $100 for a set. Nice and padded! They should be reasonnably similar to what you have now, since Bethwaite's always did a good job of standardizing parts across all their boats!

    Team Alinghi

    I believe that precedent has been set, since they obviously competed in 2003, 2007 and 2010? But I'm no lawyer... I agree that it would be great to have Alinghi back in the game - and what a show-down it could be!

    .. ....you can always wear that foil hat yer've got ...not everything needs t'foil---it doesn't work everywhere or all the time! I agree but at this point they're just copying the Hoot! We don't need two Lasers (oh wait, there's 3 variations), nor do we need two Hoots!

    Does it foil? If it doesn't foil, it's just a waste of time and money...
