    How has the coronavirus COVID-19 affected your sailing?

    All sailingsclub are closed in Denmark, access denied, prohibited otær illegal to do sport inside any sporting facility.. So very limited dinghy sailing for now.

    Used cat market

    I talked to a billionaire who was into horses. He was puzzled on how much the horses was worth when he wanted to buy them, and how little the market was, when he should sell... I guess the same go for some boats.. And cool threads - I feel like buying a way bigger catamaran:- )

    best new foiler for beginner?

    A-cat catamaran, because its so much cooler than every other boat! (at least outside other flying boats;- ) They've gotten better, so flying on a-cats is actually pretty stable these days, both up and downwind - we are still working on flying jibes and tacks though. Around a race course a-cat will probably beat most other foiling boats, but its more important to have similar boats to race than being faster... also importantly the a-cat is way more fun in nonflying conditions than all the others flying boats.

    Building an A-class Catamaran

    Or buy 2hand (they're pretty cheap). Then you can try all you ideas and you are getting all bits and pieces along for a lower price and way less time wasted (boats are the best way to waste time though:-)

    Team NYYC

    On all 4 boats the grinders are pretty active all the time, so that might indicate that continuously adjustments are being made on settings on all boats? For sure at different levels of efficiency and that's what decides who's faster. But go try yourself - theres good access to simple flying boats everywhere. And it's good fun as well:-)

    Some of you should go trying a flying boat ... especially the knowitallnz's You need to adjust everything almost all the time, else you're out of speed, that's just the dynamics of a flying boat.

    ETNZ out of Americas Cup?

    This is funny:- ) and it's just some excess pixels and bits gone missing, too many on the internet anyway.

    Carbon3 trimaran coming to Hong Kong

    masts that breaks are never any good - and saw it sailing here in Denmark, nice peace of toy:- ) Hopefully you will get it back sailing soon.

    DNA vs. eXploder - buying new A Cat

    I think it can be added that both designs have had the reliabilty problems at different scale (that can be expected with the fast development). Jakub at exploder are usually very keen on solving problems and replaces bits and pieces very fast. DNA and Mischa should maybe invest some more resources into this part of their business (i haven't had a DNA, that's only what I've heard on the slipway). But on the racecourse I wont be able to tell the difference, both designs are good, fast and stable while flying. Scheurer is in there somewhere as well, are doing pretty good job, and Sandro C does push the developmentl.

    DNA vs. eXploder - buying new A Cat

    Exploders are like Skoda's, where DNA's are more like an Alfa;- )

    Fast singlehander for 60 yo's for messsin' about

    Yeah, go for the a-cat (i'm totally non-biased;-) Trapeze has been invented, so why choose a boat without? And in Europe some still sail flying boats at almost 70:- ) If wind limit is 15 a-cat make even better sense, its overpowered at 12 knots of wind. And I raced Elvstørm outside Hellerup - he had a speciel seat fitted to his Finn, because of back problems.

    Grainger R42 - 12.8mts Performance Cruiser Trimaran

    The Black Marlin pictured above is quoted at 1460 kg, 10 m length, 7,8 m beam (havent seen measurement certificat though), so trimarans can be builld light http://visionboats.com/en/?Black_marlin

    what is it?

    Cool they got that boat on the water - and any boat is perfect for someone:- )

    Nacra 17: Kiddie Killer

    Its good to be aware of risks - but as stated above, risk is marginal in sailing. Also while flying. I Bmx'ed for while with my son and at races the would usually be ambulances before the start of racing, and they would all be needed (bones, skin, kidneys, lungs, etc.). But if some obvious risk can be avoided its good to be known
