    RS Cat 14 Question

    I was sailing my Weta 2 weekends ago in 10-15+ winds. The tiller extension came unattached from the tiller on a reach and the boat stayed its course. I expected it to turn up but it didn't. It wouldn't take long for a boat to get away from you in open water and once there is some separation it may be impossible to catch. Years ago I capsized a laser in a gybe roll and instead of the sail hitting the water it filled with air and stayed upright. Needless to say the boat quickly sailed away on its side, I had no hope of catching it. Thankfully it was during a regatta so I had help.

    Awesome picture ortegakid. I was going through some this morning. I love the one of me rounding windward and my roller furler gets jammed and the kite only half way deploys.

    Thanks for explanation on weight range. I would like to try Evo sometime.

    In light winds yes, anything else and I might end up swimming to windward.

    DTA, it was nice meeting you at Wurstfest. We have regular, monthly, centerboard races at LCYC. would be nice to have you out for some of those. Sail fast....

    Preset weight range? The VX Evo looks like a fun boat but, at 6'1" and 155 I believe I would have a hard time keeping it upright. Thoughts? It would fly with the wind though.

    It was fun sailing with everyone and I plan to join some of the other regattas next spring. I will check in for updates.

    VX Evo

    carsondude, good point on the class issue. I enjoy my Weta but would also enjoy sailing with more like boats in a class. hopefully something like the VX Evo takes off in TX. It is a really cool boat.

    VX Evo

    Agree with xonk1. The VX Evo is not in the same class as a Laser or Aero. You are getting a lot more boat with the Evo. I was expecting more Aeros at Wurstfest, only 7 there, plenty of Lasers.

    Duwke thanks for the tips out there. It was great to have another Weta on the lake. The VX Evo was fast and sailed very well.

    It was great to meet some of you this weekend at the Regatta and as an added bonus, nothing broke. Ortegakid, I saw you charging the line yesterday with the kite out, very impressive.
