    Nacra F18 Evolution

    Doesn’t look as good as a Windrush though and I would put money on it, it is not built anywhere near the same standard as well.

    Team NYYC

    Some drongo mounted the foils on the wrong side. Hope they swap them over before hitting the water.

    Searail vs Pulse your opinion matters

    Congrats Dave, it’s an awesome regatta. Hopefully I can make it back up there next year.

    Corsair Pulse picks up a win in the Tin Can Bay to Hervey Bay Regatta. Four Pulses competing.

    A-class insurance

    GIO insured my Foiler for a reasonable price. Tudor is another company that will ensure them.

    New Corsair 880

    The 880. Good video here on the 970 which will give you a bit of an idea what to expect with the 880.

    New Corsair 880

    I have heard in Australia, fully optioned at $200k and should be here early next year. Should have everything a 970 has in it however significantly cheaper, lighter, easier to trailer and looking sharper. First 12 months of build slots are already full. Cant wait to see on in the flesh.

    Corsair Pulse 600

    The little Pulse goes hard

    OK, I'll do it: Foiling Viper

    The C2 boards were moved forward to balance out the boat better with the Deck Sweeper as they felt it moved the centre of balance forward.
  12. BJ might be fairly content right now. Didn’t protest for the win but let the World know that WO elect to not play by the rules.
  13. If you don’t understand yourself, then you don’t understand racing. If it wasn’t an advantage to WO, then why do it as well.
  14. Or just let cheats get away with it. Shows where your values lie :-p
  15. Perhaps BJ didn’t want to win that way so hence no protest but didn’t want the cheating swept under the carpet.
  16. If Oats can make tactical decisions partly based on data coming from other boats but other boats can’t do the same with Oats, that is a big advantage to Oats. BJ should be comended for raising this, there should be no latitude for people who cheat in this sport. If Oats didn’t cheat, it will come out in the protest.

    Nacra F18 Infusion FCS

    Goodall’s C2 have gone down that route as well with interchangeable cases.

    Trapping higher helps when you are a punter learning and this happens

    A-Class foiling sailors

    As Sam said, drop the main in the storm situation. It might be tricky taking the angle and vertical batten out though.
