    F-16 Viper or Falcon?

    In the beach cat fleet in Dubai (light wind - flat water) the falcon seems to be the faster boat when both are sailed singlehanded. The falcon is also lighter. 2-up in bigger wind & waves, i think the viper may have the edge.

    Formula 40 Trimaran Spirit of England

    R2AK on a Beachcat

    Tornado wouldn't be a bad choice. They're still fast. Pretty cheap kick-up boards and rudders nice wide platform with good stability There must be some old Beijing olympic boats out there.
  8. yeah i get that but other foiling tri's.. maserati, gitana..etc retain a daggerboard. Just wondering if the relatively small float foils will allow it to point high without sliding sideways too much.
  9. The boat looks awesome! Not doubting Morelli & Melvin's abilities.. but i was wondering how this boat will perform upwind without a daggerboard. I know the game on this machine will be VMG (and one design racing).. but will the float foils be enough to allow it to point high enough?

    F18: who takes the main upwind?

    100% the crew. The helm trims the downhaul in gusts if the crew is having to trim too much mainsheet.

    An update on facebook stated that Morticia broke her bow sprit when she hit the back of a large wave.

    Affordable racing tris vs. cats (<35ft)

    I have an F28R.. which is similar in size. It would not fit in a 40ft container without taking the beams/floats off. I decided against dismantling to avoid anything being damaged. It had to go in an open 40ft rack due to it being oversized width.
