    Does your dinghy have a name?

    There is a theme in our class for naming boats, I will let you figure it out...

    New Olympic Dinghy Selection

    Would a foiling dinghy bridge the gap between men and women?
  3. The way it looks, they are replacing all references to laser with "ILCA" problem solved?
  4. Here is a photo of the adjustable wheels in action. less mucking around than the other set we tapped up.

    New Nacra 15

    I'll tell em to go buy their own boat, don't expect a club to buy it. club boats get treated like rubbish.

    New Nacra 15

    As someone that operates a small club fleet I can buy 10 x bic o'Pens for the price of one nacra 15. I would prefer to put 10 kids on the water than 2. From a maintenance point of view the nacra 15 partiulary in the FCS config would be very easy to damage, insurances will be expensive and claims prohibitive. I am seriously having a hard time thinking of a worse proposition as a club boat. perhaps a new foiling moth. bad idea /
  8. it wouldn't be an issue if the trailer was 200mm longer, but that would cost around $300 per year in transport fees. Sorry, the setup is ideal to maximize the number of boats for the shortest trailer possible. compromises had to be made.
  9. Sam and ACS, Have you ever seen anyone use tri clamps before ever??? I have been sailing cats fort the last 40 years and have never seen anyone using this solution before. I have one F18 EDGE, but I also have a 4x F18 trailer. for doing nationals with, The sailbox is too wide for the wheels so every time i mount the wheels on the trailer they have to moved about 100mm outwards. The argument the clamps are overkill for one boat is kinda not very well thought out. the ability to take the rollers apart and store them for travelling is highly desirable for us with cold hands after 12 races with no tools is just a bonus! so if i can save some one else the hassle of nuts and bolts for breaking down their catrax or eurotrax then I am happy to share my idea. Mobile still saves a fortune in booze at national events!!!! Cheers Dazz.
  10. Yeah 4 clamps and about 200mm of 10mm rope per clamp. 8mm was just that bit too thin.

  12. I needed to be able to adjust my wheels easily, So i bought some stainless steel tri clamps from ebay. used some 10mm rope to make them fit. Cost less than $20.
  13. more precisely a floating turd...

    How to watch live races?

    For those in Australia, Foxtel have finally added the America's cup qualifiers to the programming guide. first race is is on channel 505HD starting Saturday the 27th at 6.00am till 8.00am. Not sure why foxtel are keeping it quiet, you would think if they paid for the coverage they could at least market it a little bit.

    Oracle Team USA

    Why on earth would you pull the helm hard to weather when your windward hull starts coming out of the water. Should have been bearing away to control the situation.
