    First weekend I have been able to race since building this ride over a year ago. It was great to line up against boats especially more canoes :).

    I went out in 10-12 knots it built up gradually while I was out the was a bit on at times. I was having too much fun it was when I got back home and looked at the weather station on the lake it was 20-23 gusting 27 I thought yep that's why I was holding on extra tight on some of the reaches. Touch wood so far so good nothing broken. My first sail was in only around 5 knots. I'm using the plank and carriage we built for the 2014 Worlds boom, mast and foils are off my Nethercott from 2008 that I also used on my lat two new rule boats, its really only the hull that had to be tested.

    After not being able to get on here because I forgot my password and the reset email wasn't being sent to me, the link finally came through :).. Here is my latest ride, so far sails nice however I've not been able to sail against another boat (any boat) because of COVID lock down / restrictions. Really looking forward to sailing with another boat one day soon especially an IC.

    I wish... they are only 25 kg scales so they are nearly full circle....

    Mean while in a shed in rural Australia another IC is being built 90% complete the fun task of paint prep and paint left to do. Only 2 weeks until the OZ nationals no time to waste....

    Ive had similar setup for years its worked well for me... Have them made rather snug around the boon just loose enough to allow it to slide... Or go the high tech carbon version or basically the same set up....

    +1... If you need any help you can also pm me also.. I'm designing and building yet another new rules IC for myself happy to make more for others who like what they see in my boats... my last boat got me to 6th in the World (2014) I think it was capable of more my limited preparation held my boat back more then design.. Like any design there is always scope for improvement :)... exciting times for IC's in Australia with people getting back in the boats and new people joining into the fun...

    around the 20kg mark is my aim give or take a few depending on the rig fitting layout.... so many options to consider...

    The goal is to choose the venue to make it as affordable as possible without compromising quality beyond a fair standard, cost of shipping accommodation etc are all being considered to choose the best location (not personal favorites..) There is more happening behind the scenes for the benefit of all then some tend to want to believe...

    I'm heavily into the design of my new hull and hit many crossroads of compromise (might be a boat name there).. how fine is too fine and how far do I push the envelope... I really want to get rid of those pesky winglets no matter how hard I try they keep appearing and keep getting larger the more I want to try and push the envelope,.. I remember sailing string theory after the 08 Worlds and felt the winglets dig in and the boat take off once clear this was something I wanted to avoid, Miracle Drug and Acrobat didnt dig in like what I remember from the one short sail way back in 08 just w

    No boats from downunder however there are a couple of from OZ looking at chartering boats... I wont make to these Worlds no longer having a new rules boat doesnt help my cause...

    It would appear if I was able to some how work out how to get a boat to the next Worlds it would have to be a new one to come close to this.... Or get the angle grinder out and cut a whole bunch of boat away squeeze it back together (one way to get some weight out of the hull, the trick will be moving my rig aft as mine currently a long way forward..

    Essentially my plank is a double wedge with a wide flat on the bottom I find mine comfortable, I also had the wedge and box behind wedge design both have been ok or me. I find the size of the opening more of an issue then the depth.
