500mm front and stern. One consideration with this setup is that the wand must not be allowed to flick forwards as it would exceed the 500mm.

It also looks like a lot more aero drag to me.

well they seem to be doing ok now.
What does a worlds title get you?
A place in an America's cup team maybe? Not many non Olympic classes that can claim that.
100+ sailors at world's? non many non youth classes who share that.
fastest boat around the course? many who claim this!

 

You're kidding right ? Just about every olympic class can claim places in America's cup teams. Most of the AC guys who sail moths got their gig because of their olympic efforts, not a moth class result.

If you just want to fly, and have fun you don't need a mach 2. You just need a boat that is being sailed and well maintained. Be aware that with any Bladerider you MUST regularly inspect and replace the flap hinge if necessary or it WILL fail. That is not a big deal. You just need to be proactive about it.
