This years race could see a pretty handy line up if everything goes to plan.

 

WOIX (100 Maxi)

Rags Loyal (100 Maxi)

Speedpacker (100 Maxi)

Bella Mente (JV72)

Black Jack (VO70)

Calm 3 (VO70)

Southern Excellence (VO70)

Ichi Ban (Carkeek 60)

 

Any weather forecasts yet for them ?

i went for a ride past woolwich dock (where WOXI is) and they had a spinnaker covering the back half of the boat and lots of noises where coming from there. maybe they are doing some serious mods for the next race? they will have more competition.

At the moment there is a bit of a cold front over the Middle East so I reckon the start of the race will be quite windy but it'll feather out towards the end for the front runners.

They are carrying out some very important work to the stern section , major structural reinforcing to carry more cameras and large side shields to ensure the viewer sees wild oats and wild oats only at the start of the sydney to Hobart race and to safe guard no other yacht can be seen by the home viewer.

I do find it most annoying when the other yachts interfere with my viewing of the Wild Oats Sydney to Hobart Race. The CYCA should thinking about banning anything under 100 feet. So uninteresting.

does he get his info from a yachting journalist, or from Robbo and Johnsy...
Will Singo throw some money towards a 100'er..??
Will Gai be training the Speedboat crew??

Can we get some live, pre start odds on the race before Tommy jumps over the side? (from woxi). To then fly down to Melbourne for the odds on the last session at the mcg? Hopefully he'll have some time to sign autographs for the kids in Bay 13 before the expert cricketing comments with slats.

 They will also need to consult the CSIRO Sunfish migratory trajectories forecast to arrange a suitable collision in the event that they are getting blown away by the 60fters.

Under a miniscule IRC alteration Loyal has now increased their bowsprit to 22ft, adding another 2m. One lucky bowman will be putting the martin breaker or spiking the extra 150sq to the kites.

22 feet??? Faaaaaark. Well, at that rate the tip of the prod should cross the start line about 90 seconds before the helmsman. But it won't be early....  :P

Surely 22ft exceeds the FDU Statute for safe operation at sea? When they bury the bow down a big curly wave the poor sap out on the end is going to be T-bagged way deep in the briny. It s gonna be a hard job wiggling your way out there in full SCUBA gear.

So from the article,

 

“We are also pleased to announce that we have recently received orders from three of the world’s most high profile racing teams: Ichiban (newly-designed Carkeek 65’), Wild Oats XI and Loyal (ex-Speedboat)."

 

Is it a typo or does this answer the Speedboat ownership questions ???

The Anthony Bell/Loyal connection is old news. Still conflicting reports as to the identity of the "other party". People who should know insist it's Croaky. Bell stated at one stage that he was not a "front man" for Croaky, but that doesn't mean they aren't partners. Other sources have named James Packer. Maybe it's all 3?

We're going on Minerva slut. The boat has spent four weeks with mast, rudder out - it's now all ship-shape.

 

I spent last Christmas on the boat with the family having a cruise! This year it's all on again.

 

Everyone is very keen. We sail in a very good part of the fleet. It's going to be a great season. It's an extremely good crew to be involved with.

Amongst other things.  The claim is that it is as good as a canting keel.

Was always a canter, just changed from CBTF to, well, three boards keel and rudder.

Wonder how many times they can cut holes in the middle of the boat...

I doubt that.  DSS claiming they are "as good as" is probably a great marketing phrase, making the promise of bridging the gap between fixed and canting - which is arguably the biggest single design gap in boats at the moment that doesn't involve another hull or two. DSS isn't going to be a direct match anyway - clearly a canting keel provides pretty much a fixed righting moment - dependant only upon heel angle and cant angle. DSS provides a moment that varies with speed.  So not nearly as much value uphill, but potentially a devastating addition reaching.  Potentially.  No reason you can't have both.

Who knows?  Maybe we could see a swing back from wide arsed, hard chined reaching monsters, to (to my eye) prettier designs, with more upwind performance, that get it all back when reaching with a DSS foil?  But I doubt canting keels will be vanishing anytime soon.  No doubt a real headache for rating.  When my lottery numbers come up I'm having something like Firefly built with a DSS.

Fair comment, but just how many holes can WOX1 have in her bottom before it all get a little silly? She's got how many now? Canting keel, twin rudders, twin dagger boards, and forward daggerboard (? - not sure on that one). Add to that DSS either side and she's starting to look like a swiss army knife underwater. 

 

And to what end? To keep ahead of MaximumLoyalMuffin and SpeedVirginBler100? It all seems a little pointless to me, but what do I know, I don't have millions to blow on a maxi, and if I did, I'd just go out and buy AlfaEuropa.

It all seems a little pointless to me,

Doesn't that pretty much sum up most yacht racing?  :)

Fair comment, but just how many holes can WOX1 have in her bottom before it all get a little silly? She's got how many now? Canting keel, twin rudders, twin dagger boards, and forward daggerboard (? - not sure on that one). Add to that DSS either side and she's starting to look like a swiss army knife underwater. 

 

And to what end? To keep ahead of MaximumLoyalMuffin and SpeedVirginBler100? It all seems a little pointless to me, but what do I know, I don't have millions to blow on a maxi, and if I did, I'd just go out and buy AlfaEuropa.

It appear very little, was never a fixed keel and never had twin rudders

Ouch. Never said she was a fixed keel.

 

Anything else to add without being inflammatory?

Saw WOXI in the shed today, im 90% sure they have DSS now. There was a little rectangular cut out on the side just below waterline and a little big forward of the mast.

doubt DSS could be placed fwd of the mast.

especialy not on WOXI/Alfa design

Well duh- of course they will. They're high speed multis. What's your point? How about starting an S2H just for multihulls? Too lazy? Not enough interest?

Thats a a circular argument Terrorvision.  If there is no class for them people wont develop boats, if they dont develop boats there wont be a class for them.  Langman is pretty scathing of his club (CYCA) for not being forward thinking and encouraging the boats.

If Langman was serious about it he'd be trying to convince the MOD70 guys to come down so as to make a case for inclusion by reinvigorating the coverage. but then he'd get his arse handed to him so not likely to happen.

Look further aft than that. WOX 10 getting the dss treatment too. And huge hole forward, for forward rudder? Ernesto must be paying some coin to turbo 10.

So you are saying there aren't enough multihulls in Oz to constitute a class? Sounds like softcock excuses again- from what I gather there are some fairly developed classes down there it just needs someone to get off the pot and organise one.

 

I am not anti-multihull by the way, I have been lucky enough to sail on some of the biggest and fastest and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It's just that multihull sailors (not the 18' and below variety) whine like there's no tomorrow but never seem to draw a line in the sand and organise something. So what if the first 'Multihull S2H' only draws 10 boats- like you say, it may encourage more monohull sailors to get cat sailing. Didn't Hamilton just announce a cat class?

I love that there are currently three boats entered for the 2013 race (entries opened today?) and Wild Thing is one of them.
 
I dunno who's more of a sucker: Wharro for returning to the race that he was turfed from at the last minute last year or the club for accepting his entry after Wharro savaged them in the resulting media circus.

Mex,

Wharro will be on the starting line this year for the Hobart race and the paper work will be right.

I was talking to one of the crew of wild thing the other day and they were saying the reason that they are doing the southport race is because the paper work is the same for that race as for the Hobart race. If the CYC let's them race the southport race then they can't stop them racing the Hobart race as he boat has passed the requirements needed for both races.

Wrong, Southport is a Cat 2 race and Hobart is Cat 1, therefore different paper work required.

I certainly hope so. Wharro's resolve and that of his backers and crew must've been sorely tested. I do hope they get to race and do okay.

trt,
You are right about the cat 1/ cat 2 difference for most things. The thing is the boat still must meet ABS and other things needed for cat 1 that are included in cat 2. This is what wharro is what hoping to use when it's Hobart time.

So do tell me.. what is the difference between Cat 1 and Cat 2? Oh yeah, the Special Regs Audit and that's about it.. The boat already has a Cat 1 audit.. What's your next conspiracy theory?

This years race could see a pretty handy line up if everything goes to plan.

 

WOIX (100 Maxi)

Rags Loyal (100 Maxi)

Speedpacker (100 Maxi)

Bella Mente (JV72)

Black Jack (VO70)

Calm 3 (VO70)

Southern Excellence (VO70)

Ichi Ban (Carkeek 60)

 

Any weather forecasts yet for them ?

This pretty much counts out Bella Mente  http://www.sail-worl...-all-set/112386

I know it's still yet to be proven on WOXI, but you would think this will be a big boost to the DSS sales. I wonder if Speedrambler is going down the same track?

If the boat is going twice the speed, the foils can be a quarter of the size for the same amount of lift.

Under a miniscule IRC alteration Loyal has now increased their bowsprit to 22ft, adding another 2m. One lucky bowman will be putting the martin breaker or spiking the extra 150sq to the kites.

22 feet??? Faaaaaark. Well, at that rate the tip of the prod should cross the start line about 90 seconds before the helmsman. But it won't be early....  :P
Surely 22ft exceeds the FDU Statute for safe operation at sea? When they bury the bow down a big curly wave the poor sap out on the end is going to be T-bagged way deep in the briny. It s gonna be a hard job wiggling your way out there in full SCUBA gear.

the flying sails would be on furlers, probably on rock backs so they can be managed from the foredeck/pit.
