Ok so place your bets on how the multis do against some of the highly touted monos this year. Following with interest as next year this event  might be the first offshore event for the Dragonfly 32 arriving this summer. I'm betting on Tom Reese with  Flight Simulator- Corsair 28R- to buzz the big boys.

What Dragonfly?

 

Scratch sheets shows only a Corsair, a second modified Corsair and a Catana.

 

Whatever happened to that big (red/orange??) Farrier that was tuning up down that way a year or so back before it got hit by lightening.  I thought they wanted to race it here.  Actually I don't think I have ever heard of it racing anywhere??

Tom resse has a great boat and a great crew, with the forecast the way it is though cheeky is going to be the faster boat if they can keep the boat under control.

Hey Wess- the Dragonfly 32 is arriving this summer. Meaning it hasn't been built yet.

This race has been on my bucket list for a while.

Hi X squared.

Sorry, I missed the "next year" part of the statement, reading too quickly.

I gotta get down there myself one of these days.

Race makes sense as a Key West RW fun feeder race but if you don't have a class at KW then maybe not as sensible? I recall sometime back the F boats had a class(es) at KWRW. what happened to that?

There used to be OD 28s at KWRW and then in 2011 it was a PHRF fleet and then they said they are going from 3 circles to 2 and that the mulitihull circle was the one that was cut.

That's a real shame.  Maybe in the future multis will return.

I think the best bet for a return of a multihull O.D. Class at KWRW would be a Corsair Sprint 750 mk-II class. It's an awesome little 3 man boat, that's only a tad bit slower than the 28R.

Cheers!!!

Well see about that in the future. This year there is a 750 class at the Cherry Pie Regatta going on Feb 7-9 with 7 boats in class and then another 11 boats in the open fleet.
