  1. Haven't been in SA for a while but psyched to see this thread. We have two club owned Nikkis here in Southern California that got delivered in March of 2021. It took a while for us to figure out how to rig the vang correctly and get flying but we have a core group of kids (ages 8 - 13) that can straightline pretty well. I've also gotten a little taste of a flight on the Nikki but I'm too big at 6'1 185lbs in our light breezes. I guess we need to get a skeeta also!
  2. We have two club owned Nikkis and are trying to teach the Junior sailors to foil. I really like these boats so I can imagine the Skeeta is pretty awesome also. Its pretty easy to rig and setup. We pack everything up into the bags they came in and they sit on the dock. If you can leave it on the dolly w/foils attached, your rigging will be pretty quick. I've tried to sail the Waszp (spent a lot of time swimming) and then tried to sail the Nikki as a full grown adult. Its a bit small, but I could get up on the foils, but couldn't stay up. I'm 6'1 190lbs. We are hoping to get a skeeta at some poi
  3. I got the sense it was dead after World Sailing chose to also include kiteboarding. Its a shame, because if you aren't going to do it now while the sport has so much momentum from COVID for a debut in Paris where the Frenchies love all things IMOCA, Mini 6.5, etc... I can't see it happening at all. https://www.sailingscuttlebutt.com/2021/07/19/two-handed-growth-for-fastnet-race/
  4. Looks like something new from Marsaudon Composites... TS7, 8, or 9?
