I am a group 3 because of my business. I am classed in the same group as Jimmy Spithill. Really? This pretty much knocks me out of crewing on any amateur only event. I am talking about going sailing and not getting paid. Disqualified.
I think it should be performance based, and the rules...
Just picked up a FD (1976 Advance build) for a song on ebay, with trailer and new tires.
I have a US1 built by them and it is a really solid boat, other than the places they used ply. (Already replaced with corecell and glassed...)
Anyone know about the advance built FDs?
I would love to see...
Everyones designs are pretty refined at this point.
Find a sailmaker that will provide you with the best service.
On these boats, it is very important on HOW you sail them, a trusted sailmaker would help you get to speed.
