    Dragonfly 40

    Makes good sense to have boat for inshore racing, when you live inshore:- ) Skærbæk, home of dragonfly

    Umm, tiller?

    Use a round carbon or grp sailbatten, 10 mm. Find a stiffer one, some of them are rather soft. They can be had in any length and are flexible, so don't break when in use. So go and ask you local sailmaker, these battens cost hardly anything.

    Foilers: brushing off seaweeds?

    ventilation / caviation ..... bubbles in the water creates frustration!

    Foilers: brushing off seaweeds?

    Step 1 Sail backwards (you are slowed down anyway) Step 2, Lift rudders, boards. Havent seen anything simpler. Making them more slibbery can increase caviation, you dont want that.

    VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    What a tragedy. Vestas was just out playing with water and then... bang ... someone dies. Horrible. And some of you are pretty hard on the VOR organisation. In this situation they can only supply very limited information, to protect all involved. And the organisers are involved in the accident.

    2017/18 Australian A Class Championships

    It's happens rather frequently that the slowest are being lapped (even I have lapped some). If they are slow enough, it will happen. Level seems pretty high at these nationals, and even better pilots makes the speed differences even bigger. And good to see that the Australian fleet still is competitive, and don't get wiped out totally by some AC-sailor;-)

    Ian Farrier

    how sad - Ive been following the f-22 development, and he was also doing a really good job with that design. A pity he misses it being sold at big scale.

    TF10 foiler... what could possibly go wrong!?.....

    But that's the same for any boat, you need to practice to get fast! And this one can be sailed by newcomers, they can even choose not to fly by setting the foils in neutral, and get back to the harbour. I've only been doing a-cats and there is no need to sail it everyday. If you know how to trapeze and helm, you can probably fly it right out of the box. But more time on the water always works. And it's probably the same with this tf10.

    TF10 foiler... what could possibly go wrong!?.....

    Why pro's onboard? It's just another flying boat! A pretty cool one, for sure. But DNA know what they are doing, so I guess theyve made it sailable. In the a-class almost everybody will be able to make the latest generation fly. It requires some training, but it's rather easy. In less the 8-9 m/s, though, above it's gets a little tense because of the speed. I guess it'll be the same with this boat. 3 sails require some more coordination, but with a good helmsman and a good trimmer all should bed good. And a petty they broke the mast, but it happens now and then, also on new boats.

    Oracle Team USA

    Larry Ellison has been committed to AC for decades and he is part of its history, so awesome if he stays in there. I don't care for the legal stuff, and who's fooling who, that's just part of the colourful AC:- )

    Oracle Team USA

    Awesome if team oracle stays in the AC (even though the boats seems to get a little dull)
  14. Good call And put eXploders and Visions (good boat;-) on your list as well, all good entry-level c-board boats. Conclusion "back then" was that it's all good designs, so hard to choose which is best. Perhaps small difference in different conditions, but that will only be the last <2% For a competetive starter-boat, they will all treat you well. Best Lars
