    Brexit WTF, WTF

    yes and you informed me they have fixed that issue. So when you are not in the EU why do you need access to Europol?

    re you do know the rest of the world is not in the EU and hence no free movement of labour from the EU nor this https://www.reuters.com/article/us-eu-budget-auditors-idUSKBN1WM2B0 They seem to get on fine without being members of europol PS good catch Ron Nobel So the Europol collecting 10 million records and not passing to Interpol wasnt them it was everyone else?

    A couple of years back UK parliament asked the Interpol boss to come in for a chat to ask how it works, ( must be on youtube somewhere) he said biggest problem that silly europol is collecting data and hence the countries are not forwarding it to interpol, simple stuff like stolen passports Why does europol need to exist? PS interpol is a information collecting and disseminating body not a police force to monitor criminals

    Try and buy a new production boat, the queue is getting longer for many builders

    so Interpol no longer exists as those EU clowns invented their own system and refuse to share with Interpol? Not hard to work out where the problem is... The UK has always been one of the top suppliers of info to INTERPOL

    Multihull speed vs length

    If you look at beach cat foils for up to say 20kts, the tri's have low speed foils yet can sail at higher speeds. Hence imho they are being held back Corsair 28 has a rudder profile suitable for a J24 for example I think its the modern ( beach cats) versus old traditional tri's with no real development class to copy. The ama's look modern on some yes but foils?? Rudders that swing up, yuk

    Multihull speed vs length

    I have been passed my Multi 23's when reaching, they are useless on most points of sail but they reach very fast.
