    Where is the limit on an f27/f28?

    Peter.... being relative new do you sail ( measure ) the true wind or apparent ? 15 true and going 15 might be just a tad more wind than you think. My 28 R when pressed hard with good crew was diving at times. But every sheet was in hand and everybody was ready to dump ( not just release ). in flat water and perfect conditions we had it up to 24 knots at one time. 18 ish a lot . My Farrier F 33 is behaving much more docile and I had a beginner sailor on the helm when we went 23 knots ( I was very close to grab stuff from him ) and again sheets in hand. Never had the float submerged on the F 33.... but also I reef early and be much more cautious than most. 16 on the big boat feels like 10 on the 28 R..

    Farrier bought by Daedalus

    I just hope that Ian's family got a boatload of cash from the deal, but also I was thinking that Ian's heart attack flying back home has something to do with this. This is so sad on so many levels.
  3. used mine on a couples race a couple years back to furl in screacher ...... somebody made a remark, I had no idea..lol dropped out of the race and let another couple win .. no big deal for our own races since than, we add to the NOR and SI that electric winches are allowed. They are not as fast as experienced crew anyhow. It also sets a tone to allow older folks to race and be inclusive. We need every participant we can get

    Corsair / Farrier 31 /9 variations

    Got the upgrade foils from Farrier, they look very similar to Phils foils No ventilation …. or at least I never had any.... fastest was 23 knots I need to get back out of my slip and turn fully around in 1 1/2 boat lengths …. no problem with slow maneuvers either. very happy to have them Thor F 33

    bad mistake ….. with a little good will to Farrier ( and Corsair ) customers they could built something which would be a very valuable resource for them.

    Farrier bought by Daedalus

    why would that be expensive..... I doubt that there are more than 20 F boat owners present … Ian donated some very cool shirts for all Fboat owners and crew during one of the last Trimaran Nats in Pensacola couple years back. Tech Polos with lots of embroidery, even had the names of the boats on them.. Class Act !

    is Daedalus going to be at the Annapolis show ? Throwing a party for all F boat owners would go a long way I would think
  13. what makes me think that the OP is pushing it trying to do R2AK when he is asking these questions to start with. I have like 20 years experience on Multis ( F28R and F33 ) and would not even dream to do that race. I admire all the folks who do, but would feel totally incompetent myself. Any budget like that will end up in disaster in my opinion.
  14. I race my F 33 in a mono fleet. It took me 2 years to be accepted ( more or less ) from the leaners. They had to re write the sailing instructions from self righting and add unsinkable to their instructions.... I be darned to push the start so hard ( and being totally in the wrong ) that those folks will disallow me to sail with them. Yes if there is a huge hole I will go for it. ( almost never happens ) otherwise I keep back, get good wind and just start in second row, whenever possible tack away. I can try to go hard to wind and being as slow as the monos ( which kills me with my Phrf rating ) or bear off and get speed.... it works most of the time and everybody is happy, even if I don't win. Main idea is NOT to push any rules

    cleat... red line … well its the furling line of the jib, it looks like both are in one cleat, but line just lays on top and has cleat more to starboard holding it in place. :-)
