    Yes, Silverrudder is THE project for this season. Looking forward to it. See you in Svendborg!

    I'm using the light wind settings here on the lake if I expect no more than about 10 kts of TWS. This coming season I'll try to go even a little lower. The standard tension has proven very good in the adriatic between 10 and 25 kts in low to moderate waves.

    Hi guys I can help with rigg tune. Attached find the basic settings for most normal wind strengths and a very light wind / no waves setting. Disregard the two columns on the far right ( they concern only my boat SUI 15). The second page is about forestay length (sorry in german only). Basically the forestay should be the length form the top of the Jib halyard + 111 cm (that is 43.7 inches for the metrically challenged), measured all the way down to the deck in front of the mast and at the bow, respectively. I've been using these now for tow seasons (both on our lake on and the adriatic) and they seem to work well (got them form Tit Plevnik, who probably has the most experience with the boat in many different conditions so far). Hope this helps. P.S. Don't think I needed to make any changes to the setup (not fotos, sorry) Rigg tune SSC 27 .pdf
  5. Seascape is lauching their new sportboat, the Seascape 24 in Düsseldorf. She will not only be taking up the space between their previous boats the SSC 18 and the SSC 27 in terms of lenght but also in terms of concept. It will be intersting to see what that means performance wise. Yacht magazine has the exclusive first look here http://www.yacht.de/del.icio.us/post?title=Yacht-Magazin&url1=http://www.yacht.de/yachten_jollen/neue_boote/seascape-bringt-eine-neue-24er/a103247.html(sorry, in German only).

    See here: http://silverrudder.com/en/results/2015-scoreboard Conditions were relatively rough at the start with winds 15-20 gusting to > 25 kts, so not all boats made it to the start (4 18s and 27s each DNC) In the Keelboat Mini class (18-25 ft, no handicap) the SSC 18 (the smallest boat by far in the field) came in at 4th, 5th and 16th out of 18 finishers (beat by a Mini 650 Pogo 2, a Melges 24 and a Platu 25). In the Keelboat Small class (25-30 ft, no handicap) the best SSC 27 came in 4th (sailed without an auto pilot!) after 21:47 hrs (25th boat home of >170 monohulls, beating most 30 to 40 footers and more than half of the >40 ft) , only 84 min behind the winner. The second SSC 27 made 11th out of 45 finishers. A third SSC 27 retired after running aground without damage during the start sequence.

    @bf childrenyou'd actually be surprised how well this setup works, both for shorthanded and fully crewed racing. shorthande,d helm sits further forward than in above pic, just behind the primary winch and has traveller and mainsheet under control, kite may be trimmed from just about any position in the cockpit. ortherwise the driver moves further back a leaves the space to a dedicated main trimme, which can also sit in front of the winch at the bulckhead. I think the cockpit layout is one of the things that set this boat apart from others, lot's of thought and tryout went into it. go sail the boat if you have the opportunity, i'm pretty sure you'll love it.
