    Olympic classes support in the USA

    If you get a chance, check out Paige Railey and other US Radial sailors social media posts in the last week from their training block in the new San Francisco training base ... epic conditions, great team atmosphere and young wide eyed sailors learning alongside some of the jets.... fantastic!!

    World Sailing Vote ... Proposal M36

    Its all over the shop....
  3. M36182024OlympicSailingCompetitionEventsEquipment-[23747].pdf Reading that this is the Proposal that The Events Committee at World Sailing have approved and recommended to Council ... New sailboards, kites replace the Finn, and a yet to be determined single hander replaces the 470 ...
  4. My son is there (AUS team) and having a ball, despite the mass BFD's in race three!!!
  5. Finally the boy got to unwrap his UFO down here in Sydney .... its been a long, long wait!!! Can't wait to now get the thing rigged and on the water!

    Does your dinghy have a name?

    My laser was called "Fat Buoy Swim" ... but now I've lost 27kg it might be renamed "Slightly Less Fat Buoy Swim"!!

    Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    Keep sailing the Opti, race it hard, and in the meantime jump into anyone else's faster boat you can!!! Every 420 ride that comes up, grab it. If someone has a laser going out, ask for a go .... at 35kg the bigger faster boats will be a bit of a leap. Oh, and the best fast thing for your budget, if it really is burning a hole in your pocket and you must spend it ... a sailboard. Probably a Bic Techno 293 with a couple of sails ... easy to store too, and it will teach you heaps about sailing, apparent wind sailing and the sheer joy of blasting around!! Good luck!!

    The first UFO arrives in Sydney next week on board The Bernhard S .... can't wait to get the little bloke buzzing around... absolutely zero interest in a class at this stage - he has had his Opti for that, and now Laser and F11 ... this is just pure and utter joy sailing ... Until another one turns up ... or he buzzes past one of Dario's creations around Cockatoo Island ... All good fun, and a great time to be a sailing kid!!! And a sailing dad, who is patiently waiting for the little bloke to set the thing up and then go to school so he can get out for a sail!!

    Foiling Week Sydney... Speed comparisons?

    My son has UFO hull #55 on a ship right now bound for Sydney ... was held up a little with the inclement weather in the American North East! Can't wait to get it set up and running .... and to pinch a ride if I can!!
  11. Absolutely!!! Plenty to do down here in Sydney!!!
  12. Just brilliant seeing these videos and the photos ... will all be revisited many times when my son's UFO arrives in Sydney, Australia!!!
  13. A certain 13 year old Opti sailor in Sydney can't wait for December and his UFO arriving ... wooohooooo!!!
