    Sun Fast 3300

    Any more information or results? They must be rolling out of the shed
  4. Is it time that rating certificates (ie IRC, ORCi etc) have an allowance for amateur teams. we are an amateur program (and proudly so) and can hold our heads high when we do go head to head with the fully funded professional programs. However I am seeing that the professional teams invariably always win (its their job to after all). So I am seeing less and less amateur programs playing the rating game because they simply can’t compete. It really isn’t a level playing field. so should future rating certificates include and allowance for full amateur teams?

    Will the CYCA follow the rest of the world and allow a 2 handed division? 2 handed sailing seems to be a growth segment in sailing. Some very good boats (within he sub 40 foot space) coming on the market: ofcet 32 NPK 1080 sunfast 3300 and 3600

    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.

    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..

    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

    Current maxi going around the world has averaged 36 knots. Wild oats in the Kepple race were patting themselves on the back for averaging 22knots over only 400 miles..... Mono's still have a long way to go

    Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    XL Dsq'd, no shit. There's ample evidence in a couple of photos up-thread to decide that. Probably won't make Coompsy feel any better about things though. Hope the repairs are on-time and she can get away soon. Was this enough for XLR8 owner to throw hands in the air and list his boat for sale? What is happening in Melb with all your Div 0 and most Div 1 boats up for sale or sold.

    Isn't Alinghi already in this game lol. I would not be surprised if the challenger of record didn't have some Alinghi stickers on the boat.
