    SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    I’m with Random here, a good RO would have set the gate further away from the channel marker. Did it really have to be there?

    It’s out there buddy, the Nacra 17 Class released a statement stating the same. There is also a lot you don’t hear or read about and incidents that have been covered up.

    A muppet like you obviously wouldn’t understand. Can you back up your views otherwise? Even A Class Sailor posted the same views regarding they are going through a learning stage regarding danger that they have not experienced before.

    Random, would that be calling water due to an obstruction? I seem to remember things like that during my racing career. You must race boats as well.

    What outrageous claim comic? I don’t just talk to these guys on Sunday.

    So, when do Moth sailors have trap harness tear apart. When to they fall off trapeze into a rudder foil coming at them. When do they fall over the front and get run over by a foil. When do they slide into a raised foil. When do they injur ankles and knees when being thrown off trap. When do they come injure their back when they fly back first into the hull whilst on trapeze. Some of this may have happened before on cats but it is amplified with the speeds, distance to fall and T foils.

    No, they don’t know the risks however they are quickley learning. You will not see tuned down versions of these peices of shit in another league as there are much better options out there already. You do understand foiling as we see it now is relatively new and we are seeing injuries and frequency of them like we have not seen before.

    So Monochrome, is this part of the fun? Do you understand what could have happened in this situation?

    Foiling injuries

    Perhaps L rudders would be safer. Note - Injury was leg, not shoulder. http://www.yachtsandyachting.co.uk/articles/news-and-events/nacra-17-committee-statement-injuries/

    Foiling injuries

    Another sailor injured by foils, this time a Danish Nacra 17 sailor who’s trap line broke and he was hit by the rudder foil, hospitalising him. There seems to be a lot of sailors being injured by foils or foil related crashes. It is only a matter of time before the worst happens. https://www.sail-world.com/news/201771

    Nacra 5.0 easily smokes an Astus 16.5 Sport.

    A well sailed H16 would smoke your sorry ass as would most 16 foot boats. Do you even know how to push that thing hard. Pathetic childish post. Did you bully the younger smaller kids at school.

    Whilst a great little moderately performing Tri, it is still very heavy for a 20 footer compared with your 20 foot cats. It is nowhere near as quick as the high performance off the beach cats that run flatter kites. Like all smallish performance / cruising Tris it requires a kite that is deeper than a code zero to get it downwind with decent VMG. We have played with different cut kites on 18's and found we lost depth and VMG with very flat kites and the skiff was a little more nosey. Sheeting loads were not noticeably different.

    This gentleman seams to have a little big more experience in this field than you Wayne however I guess you are the SA multihull expert. why don't you get off your keyboard and sail a few different type of boats before digging your hole further.

    I have raced apparent wind boats from keel boats, large multis, skiffs and fast off the beach cats. I would put money on it what I have done would make you look like a novice. As apparent wind boats become quicker, sails are cut flatter. If you just throw a code zero on an apparent wind boat at the slower end of the range, don't expect it to be quick.
