    International 14 Info

    Throw the boat away. I was sailing 14's in the era where carbon masts started to be d'rigour. All speed gains that the boat I sailed over were winter were lost completely. They have come a long way since then.

    Singlehanded rig suggestions

    Sell the 14' and get a second hand Moth. The Moth will be faster, easier to sail and leave a smile-on-your-dial. Plus with the Moth it'll be easier to find like competition to sail against! Good luck with it all Fish

    The A class cats deal with a two (2) fleet system, as an outsider looking in - it appears to be working for them Fish

    moth mach2.0 upgrade possibilities

    Would suggest that you haven't got your current boat setup properly if you cannot foil it upwind in 13-14 knots, especially when you are a slight 72 kg. How frequently are you taking out your moth? What sails & mast are you running? How much vang are you cranking on when going upwind?? Are there any local fleets of Moths in your area where you could gain pointers and tips? Woudl be worthwhile getting someone to take photos of you sailing upwind and posting these, they'll reveal alot to those in the know! Bon chance, Fish

    The Future of One Design

    I would figure that the time premium is something that hits most people unless you've plenty of cash to pay someone else. Not developing your boat due to being restrained in a SMOD class would be a good thing.

    The Future of One Design

    Wouldn't agree on the I14 addition to all of this. I started sailing those in 1990. In Australia the national championships have turned to CRAP (2017 --> 26 boats, 2018 --> 19 boats) and the list NO results nor any upcoming events. We used to get these numbers sailing in the victorian circuit races, around port phillip bay, back int he early 90's! Seems like people are hanging onto a vision which is far removed from reality! I think Guy B had it right when he left the class for a SMOD!

    New 2 handed boat from Rondar.

    Would disagree with you on that one as it appears to have a centre-board, where is the bloody dagger board??? MEGA-sigh! Fish

    Moth Developement

    Hi Phil, If this is the case would the class be open, there I said it, to reducing it's development of foils and rigs, and to limiting the #s of foils and rigs that they are allowed to use at a regatta (maybe just 1 of each)? Having classes that are expensive is not good for the class nor the sport of sailing. I'm sure the moth class would still move forward with these limitations. Fish
  13. I say a wise decision by you, well done and enjoy the sailing Fish
