In Topic: Cork Week Results

Looks odd. The classes were both 14 boats, maybe they tossed a coin! Or maybe they gave it to a visitor to encourage more interest.

The only way to deal with these events is to publish the decision making formula in the Sailing Instructions.

The SI s mention level of competition in the class but if you are so good that you win every race by miles you may be penalised.

Plenty of competition in class 5, wasn't exactly full of learners.

 

I think not publishing the formula isn't good on the side of the RC.

 

Heard some people saying they liked a bigger boat winning more.

 

 

Quokka could hardly be described as a visitor either, she;s on the Irish Commodore's cup team

Runaway Bus is drysailed from Cowes and is arguably the best looking of the QT fleet there. She is certainly well loved.
Funnily enough Im looking forward to lining up against her in the IRC Small Boat champs this weekend: it'll be interesting to see how she goes against an Impala.

 

there were pics somewhere of Runaway Bus going through her modifications and changes. Cant remember what site it was but was good viewing 

Runaway bus had her own site- they were on there.

Gorgeous looking with a bright red hull

$45000 to ship from Europe? Ouch!

That's around what I expected but christ.

 

What would it be to say ship a quarter tonner the same distance?

Just checked and in real money it's just under €30000... which is reasonable.

In Topic: Scow Mini v.2

17 June 2014 - 01:54 PM

The two Raison designs got No1 and No2 positions in the Marie Agnès Peron Trophy. 

it looks like this season is going to be very boring... all the others will not be able to do much against them, other than planning to get a scow mini too for next season :D

 

I think so too, provided they don't break anything!

The big, big thing that I think sets the scow apart from all the other really radical hull forms that we've seen it the fact that it's no slower in any circumstances, and much faster in some.

Makes it very attractive to people.
