    Sydney To Hobart 2018

    So if the CYCA think multihulls are unsafe to race to Hobart... what are they going to say when the first full foiling monohull turns up? Ie full crewed IMOCA 60 ????? Or will they just move the stability requirements beyond their reach protecting 100 foot dinosaurs?

    Looks more 10’s but man those foils must be draggy as look how much thrust the tow boat is putting out to scull drag it out the harbour.

    would you sack mark richards ?

    We have had two port starboard incidents within a week in two of the world biggest sailing events.... The worlds best in the Melb start of the Volvo politely did their turns and got on with business. The self proclaimed Aus elite on WO chose to ignore.

    Has there ever been a year that the 50's haven't been tipped? look at results from 2 years ago (in another 50 footer year) a certain JPK 1080 got second overall..

    The JPK 1080 will be the one to watch.....
  10. Was just watching the WoW AC36 computer generated village and noticed a lineup of monohulls for the youth series.... Any information on what these will be? A 35-40 foot version of the AC75 would be awesome

    New Scallywag..... why continue to invest in a 100 that really hasn't meat expectations when you can buy Comanche and have the currently fastest 100 on the planet

    Just to add to the rumour mill.... Comanche = Scallywag

    Melges 40

    Bump wirh all the Facebook promo, now front page and still nothing in this forum. So is hype = reality? TP52 speeds (really?) build quality? Fast 40 v melges 40? come on we have had our first 4 boat international regatta. Some promo slow sailing in light wind.

    Superfoiler test (video)

    Will these be available for normal people to buy and play? And If so how much? Would be a pitty to lock these boats to this event only.

    Are Orifice Sandbagging?

    FFS Orific put in the wrong boards for the day... bullshit they have one set of foils that go from 6-9 knots and the other 8-25 knots..... their heavy air foils will be smaller and as such harder in marginal conditions to manuver and it's also likely you would get more side slip which is what we all though was better NZ veg up wind. And to stay on small foils down wind you need to sail hotter. So no sand bagging, simply a wrong foil choice on second day.... they won't make that mistake again
