    Interesting.... so how deep is the rudder foil... and is it designed to sit on the rudder so when it ventilates you don't get a nose dive, but it sits back down?
  2. Fark mee..... have you guys been arguing for the entire 3 months since I last checked this thread !!!
  3. Did BJ talk to the race committee.... sounded like they spoke to the media not committee...
  4. These rules clearly are from the dark ages..... what happens when a competitor cheats in the Olympic sailing classes and no sailor lodges a protest. Dumbest thing I have ever heard in my life, what is the point of even having a race committee if they have no purpose once the start gun fires.

    what is it?

    Kind of like saying, cookson 50 is a failure of a boat, because it beats some tp52's, then gets beaten by a 55 footer Cant' remember which race but one of them that had some strong downwind and a bit of reaching at the end after pretty light rest of the race .... showed their potential. From memory they were matching the carkeek or botin 60 on that angle, but of course the advantage on one angle, may be a disadvantage on another.

    You could combine a titanium core, with carbon fiber on the outside...... They are quite compatible, and you think would perform much better...

    There seems to be a lot more excitement about the 2019 S2H than the 2018 event on the official website. Is something special happening? Multi's? Foilers?

    Alpinefoil are using a solid titanium fuselage, on their kitesurfing kit. I can tell you its about 70% the size of the heat treated aluminium version but has the same strength....quite a reduction in wetted area.

    I guess it depends where u live, how much you take care of the bike etc... I'd be voting for solid titanium for the keel structure, should be coming down in price in a couple years time with the 3d printing capabilities.
