    new stuff in the a-class

    Hoop, Thanks for the clarification on the DN evolution. Regarding foiling the A cat. If you think it is going to be easy to sail and as simple as just adding the L foils I think you are in for a bit of a shock. Besides sailing ability required Platform stiffness, thus weight, sail development...

    Don’t get me wrong, I believe foil development needs to happen at some point but It should be done as its own separate entity. Majority who race A cats do so for the act of racing very cool boats on a relatively even field. Those who wish to tinker and foil have quite different requirements. If...

    OMG, I’m not sure I can read some of this BS any longer. Anyone that thinks the A guys are doing the wrong thing being cautious on the speed and direction of the current development has no appreciation for the quality of sailing and performance of the boats we currently have! People that keep...

The A Cat Tec committee is doing a great job and if any of you know the guys involved they are very knowledgeable and good guys that have been to a rodeo or 2. Anyone...

    Hey Demon, I meant no disrespect to the Paradox program, just in the videos of it sailing it looks to sail similar to Cairnsie and Martin’s boats while we were practicing before Denmark worlds. A couple of times the boats really did look close to flight. But didn’t end up being fast. A couple...

    Saying that I wish all of the new projects and new builds all the success. It is great to see continued evolution. The class is amazing and the reason why there is even a debate. When someone indicates a concern for rapid development it is simply the non-selfish opinion of what it best for the...

    Photos or it didn't happen. In the videos the boat isn't flying anymore than the mayfly or my Nikita or DNA for that matter. DP didnt seem to perform to his usual standard when he raced the boat.
