    Rad new Ran Fast40 for Niklas Zennstrom

    Any development on the Yachts performance ?

    I agree, it appears to pushing a large volume of water. In broken water it may look and be totally different.

    AC36 CLASS RULE

    Don't agree with you there, there are stipulated measurements given pursuant to Rule 3.7 ~ they define a minimum width at the transom and a rather ambiguous Station measurement at the bow (as I read) + / - My take on the + / - of 25 mm is deal with water surface stability (at marina) - possibly ?

    AC36 CLASS RULE

    Rule 3.7 at (a) and(b) defines the location points of the 3 screws Rule 3.8 mentions location or the reference points being at a declared offset and going onto to say reasonably close to the reference points .. . ****. how close is reasonable needs to be defined or perhaps requires further clarification ~ again I have only sped-read the rule to date. Rule 10.6 "The maximum length of the hull shall be no less than 20.6 m and no greater than 20.7 m" if the hull is 20.6 m then rule 3.7 at (a) needs adjustment or further defining I would think. Seems to me that waterline length is to be 20.7 m at waterplane (MWP) ~ rule 10.6 has me somewhat scratching my head at the moment given the accuracy (2mm ...) stipulated in other parts of the rule.

    AC36 CLASS RULE

    Aren't there 3 points (screws) located at the waterplane ? : two at the transom located 2 metres either side of centreline and one forward, similarly on the waterplane at 20.7 m. ~ these points have to be 25 mm + / - of waterplane when boat is afloat. The forward point (screw) somewhat forces a vertical stem bow in the forward waterplane region, don't think a reverse bow is possible given the rule with respect perimeter and geometry control (of perimeter) the way I read the rule. Dont quite get the rule about the boat being between 20.6 and 20.7 metres given the screw locations ~ by my quick reading of rule.

    Are the hulls likely to rather full-bodied forward to deal with nose diving issues ?

    RS 21 - Fugly or just a different genre

    So it is obvious the Aero is going not make even a scratch on the Dominant Laser - 1200 boats (Aero) compared to the Laser in the same time period ~ what's gone wrong with the Aero ?

    what's it for?

    The SB 3 could upgrade their options with a sail drive !

    Don't agree with your take on the photographs, trying to read evidence from the wake in this isolated situation is like reading tea leaves ! Correct me if I am wrong but I don't think the sail setting (trim) comes in the equation. : what I am saying is that the video evidence is not reliable given sea state (confused) and camera position in the two photographs.

    No t that it matters anymore : same painting with a different perspective : looking at the two photographs in isolation ( they don't agree with my take on the video material I have watched) I would conclude WO is sailing away and going higher ~ Commanche makes a fair mess of the water surface !
