  1. Volcanic ash is all over the boats (and obviously in the air the racers breathe). I Read that the organizers “had a plan B” (presumably not including stopping at La Palma). Fools.
  2. Current listings: https://www.yachtworld.com/boats-for-sale/make-dazcat/
  3. https://multihullsolutions.co.uk/new-dragonfly-40-c-introduced/ Time to jumpstart this thread.
  4. Posted 1 hour ago You may well audit the postings but you've still provided nothing to back up your sweeping statement. I too don't care for a gut feeling hence why asking you to substantiate it. After a quick google search: https://www.cnbc.com/2021/03/19/boat-sales-took-off-during-pandemic-dealers-cant-keep-up-with-demand.html https://www.vendeeglobe.org/en/news/22377/the-2020-2021-vendee-globe-much-more-than-just-a-success https://www.yachtingworld.com/features/the-rise-and-rise-of-double-handed-racing-133804
  5. I actually audit the postings I mentioned. Don’t care for a person’s gut feeling. Ask the Ed. I am sure he counts these things too. It is his livelihood.
  6. Actually, activity/interest in things “sailing” is down across the board. Not only here but on YouTube, internet “yacht for sale” ads, and blog activity. Blame Covid.
  7. From Wikipedia: From July to October 2020 there were at least forty reliable reports of orcas attacking boats off the Atlantic coast of Portugal and Spain, unusual and unprecedented behaviour. The nudging, biting and ramming attacks, on medium-size sailing boats sailing at moderate speed, concentrated on the rudder, with some impacts on the hull. A small group of orcas are believed to be responsible, with three juveniles which have been named black Gladis, white Gladis and grey Gladis, identified as present in most attacks. While the incidents were terrifying, no people were injured. The
  8. From the Cape to La Palma’s volcano navigation (toward the volcano) will be simplified: Exodus 13:21-22 New International Version 21 By day the Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night. 22 Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people.
  9. When will it be built? Which manufacturer will build it? I say it won’t be long, and the manufacturer(s) will be previously located in high labor cost locations and/or far from their ultimate purchasers. Order-to-delivery times will be slashed. What say you?
  10. I would like to encourage Paul and all of the other multihull manufacturers. There are many obstacles and difficulties for all and no one knows when things will become “normal” again. It can be assumed that supply (of new boats) will be outstripped by demand for some time and that “late model” used boats will be scarce on the market. Prices will go up. NOW would be the time for those who would want to be sailing to lock up your place in the “order” line or to buy that late model used. “You snooze, you…….(you know). There is another YouTube video about the Rapido 50. I don’t know how
  11. Tomorrow is not going to be the end of the world unless your world is sailboats. Today, buying a new or near new sailboat is almost impossible. If the boat of your dreams is yet to be built, out of the country of your residence or both, there will be a huge amount of trust (on your part) and delay in taking delivery of the boat. Think 2 years and you may not be disappointed if boat is built to your order. How will you feel 2 years from now? Currently your country doesn’t want you to travel (and may prohibit your travel). The country where you “need” to travel probably does not want
  12. Multihuler, you are considering NC as your new base. Here is a listing you might consider: https://www.landsofamerica.com/property/4.45-acres-in-Pamlico-County-North-Carolina/7013626/ Things are still pretty reasonably priced in this neck of the woods. I have no personal connection to this property.
  13. Randy on Nacra 20 “finishing” a day’s run in Worrell 1000 at Cape Hatteras coming in thru 10 foot breakers under main alone. Do you know how difficult this was?
