    Bavaria in administration

    I’ve been a dealer for all the big brands and for some really cool custom brands so I consider myself pretty well informed.... That experience leads me to have absolute belief in my view that you are a compete tool.

    Really? Care to elaborate based on your wealth of multihull experience?

    Brisbane to Gladstone 2018

    Er, Wouldn't you be the biggest offender in that area? Even your own statement "even lagoons, nautitechs" is indicative of your normal stance

    Consumption at BOOT (re front page)

    In Bavaria world we actually encouraged interaction with anyone and everyone.... and on the Italia stand you didn't have to be too special to be handed a plate of pasta and a glass of wine! Scot will tell you that the little Italia 9.98 is a smoking hot bit of gear. Having worked with both Beneteau and Bavaria over the last decade, I can tell you that Bavaria has a much more approachable policy and that maybe why they sold in excess of 200 boats at Boot.

    2017 Australian Multihull Championships

    Here we go again... 1. The Diam is by far the most recent design in the fleet.... not to mention the only boat in the Aus fleet designed by a house with runs on the board that VPLP does. As an aside... I am pretty sure OMR wasn't in the consideration during design so pretty sure it shows what a modern package is capable of. 2. Did you notice the elapsed times in the last race? 2nd over the line in front of a 36ft race cat and 50ft fast cruiser cat. Its 24 foot!! 3. As Tony said.... they were all pretty well sailed. 4. For sure its in a different corner of the rule but if you compare it against the Sprint mk2, I am not sure the Bruce number would be that different.

    Corsair Pulse 600

    We did quite a few test kites for the 49ers back in the day with tighter luffs and flatter shapes... the loads were off the charts compared to the standard 9er kite. Pretty logical given you are sailing tighter apparent angles Similar when we mucked around with F18s but the differential was not as much... sheet load was already pretty high
