NEWICK VAL 31ft tri


Recommended Posts

Im rebuilding lost rigging of this nice old schooled tri, former mast was formula28 but lost due to runner failure.

Does anybody know design details for this boat, speccialy rigging requirements, eg. inertias for mast section ?

 

thx

I have some old Multihulls Magazines around somewhere. In one of them there was an article about racing in Sweden, and there was a wing val the owner had weighed for competition. I'll have to dig around for it, but don't see that happening too soon.

Owner of Nandi is (I believe) active on FB and that boat (Newick Val 31 wing) had some original drawings/plans/etc with it --10 years ago, way back on the west coast of BC. I can't say if the mast/rig would be stock/to plans, but boat had a moderately sized rig, about 33-35ft mast, original to the boat--so perhaps a possible starting point https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&u=https://elpais.com/revista-de-verano/2020-08-17/una-odisea-de-10000-millas-nauticas-desde-california-a-ibiza.html plus now it seems Nandi is in the same corner of the world as Go Banannas.. There were also 1 or 2 other Val 31 wing on the East coast usa, owners at least in the past members or involved with NEMA nemasail.org

Hi KACZOR,

Currently I have a VAL III "St Laurence" it is an updated version of the boat above with a few modifications to the hulls and rig with Dick Newick's help, some ware at home I may still have a full set of plans including the rig dimensions that may be of help to you, if you want me to have a look PM me with your e mail address but no promises as I have moved a few times.

You could ask about the Val mast on The Golden Oldies Multihulls FB page, Stuart will answer for sure (he is the owner of Nandi).
