    Thanks guys, but you weren't supposed to tell everyone! That was certainly my guess from watching the the racing. Worried about the water statement as we do have long skinny boards, certainly won't be all the way down, but still wonder how much water is there as we'll need all of 4' for the rudders at least.

    Been following closely. Awesome sailing and trying to get some secrets for I-14 Worlds on the same water in another couple weeks.

    A significant number of German I-14 sailors in Hamburg I believe.

    Australian I14s on facebook Also, let me know what you are looking for - a high end competitive boat, a fixer up boat to sail on your own, something like they did in the video? What would you like to spend? Can hook you up here in US, or possibly point you in the right direction in GBR, AUS, GER.

    Just have ask as the right people. There are boats around from free to very high end worlds quality boats. Not a lot of them here in the states, but can find some depending on what people want. Reality is most people buy them, sail them a few times and think they are too hard to sail, or won't put the time and effort into sailing them. As a fleet we try to not to send them off to never never land as we'll never see them again. Others think they need a new boat to be competitive, maybe, but have to be honest with yourself if the boat is slowing you down or you are slowing you down. Usually it's software! Lots of good starter boats around, usually need some love, but allows you to get started, then move up later is you're still motivated. Can also find boats overseas and get them at a worlds event to reduce shipping costs. Some good deals can be found in AUS and GBR. There was a small resurgance in Newport about 10 yrs. ago, had an NAs there. Kind of fell apart when a few people bailed out, moved, had kids, life...etc. Are a few boats in upper midwest trying g to get some traction, but struggling as well. Mostly and West coast fleet with strong holds in San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle. Happy to put some people together with appropriate boats for what they want.
