    What's happened to the VX One ?

    Last week in Charleston, epic sailing, current, light air, heavy air, medium air...beers, power bars, great laughs, great food and above all a great crowd on a great boat!

    Sun Fast 3200 Forestay & Shrouds Replacement

    For a boat that "lives' on salt water the recommended time is 10 to 11 years . Most owners push this further, but it is not really a safe bet. Corrosion and crystallization of the stainless steel is not always obvious and easy to spot. We make complete rigging systems in both 1x19 and Compacted Strand (aka Dyform) . Feel free to contact me if are interested in a price for the rigging. rod@velasailingsupply.com

    The VX Evo

    HI Martin, We are don't have scheduled Miami just yet. We may join one of the VX One Winter series in Sarasota, but still working on the calendar. As soon as the container arrives from England with the new boats we will have a clearer picture of what the program will be like and share it.

    Rumors Floating: LP selling out??

    Have not heard anything confirming this and we are starting to get more parts . We got MKII sails, a couple of Radials and finally a bunch of Carbon top sections.

    The VX Evo

    While it is mostly known that Vela Sailing is the current VX Evo distributor for the Americas, little has been said and posted so far. Boats are in production and there is a formal announcement coming soon. In the meantime, I personally haven't even posted anything as I am currently BOATLESS!! Yep, unbelievable, but I sold my last VX Evo back in summer and all demos boats, used boats etc, are in use. We have a container of six boats arriving in mid December and here are the shots from the factory (Ovington Boats): Stay tuned!

    No, the base price is for the rigged boat, running, standing rigging and blades.

    The VX Evo

    Alright guys, Thanks again for "hanging in there" all this time until details were finished. Officially we are the distributor and operator of the VX Evo for the Americas, from Canada to the "Horn". We will be launching the newsletter soon, however this is not slowing things down anymore: the production slot with the builder has been allocated and we are expecting the first container under the new watch to arrive Mid December. Details, pricing and contact information here: https://www.velasailingsupply.com/vx-evo-complete-sailboat/ Feel free to reach out to us at anytime!

    The VX Evo

    If the D-One was sailing with his largest sail at 11.5 Sq. Meters and you with you "A" sail, that is 1.3 sq meters less sail area on the VX Evo. Also the Gennaker on the Evo is a little smaller than the D-One's....interesting. Please keep sharing as you do more races, interesting to see that differential.

    The VX Evo

    Great input. Awesome way to describe it, thanks again for sharing. The VX Evo definitively fits those needs, specially when you like performance without the crashing!!

    The VX Evo

    Glad to hear the video has helped you! We know is a long tutorial, but users can "fast forward" to the area they need or can watch the whole thing during a Sunday morning with coffee on hand. One of the key things about both, VX Evo and VX One are exactly that:elegance, while still a sport boat, which tends to be hard to achieve. Kudos to the designers, Brian Bennett and Rodger Martin for hitting it right! For the sake of letting the community know more about the VX Evo, can you share what have you sailed before the VX Evo?
