    new stuff in the a-class

    there is no one solution that satisfies both parties, the class is already divided, is a fact. so if you want to get ahead you have to understand this and immediately change the rules. the class is already big and has many members, now, the most important thing is to keep the number of members...

    yes, I've seen this air turbulence, on 'S.9, I think this air going to fill an area of the flap where there is standing water, thus reducing the friction drag of water. I regret a little that no one uses as an example the S .9, it is not a class A but is the boat more similar to A. regarding...

    I agree, this is correct, I can already fly with my new 14-foot, Stunt S.9, and with a small change to the foil I can already compete in Class A. but maybe in this way we will not have class A, but a new class.

    these are really useful and constructive ideas, I fully agree with SC65, also I have supported this idea in the past and it seems to me the most logical and correct. Moth class has also had the same problem and have it resolved as SC65 says.

    catnewbye, I notice that you are informed, then why not speak of the problems and also data from other brands??? Please, do as if I do not exist. ok?

    new stuff in the a-class

    I knew your real job was another type . however , I would prefer to speak only of class A and no other boats, so the discussion is more consistent with reality. we have done thousands of tests in the past, and many have been done on the materials and structures of the hulls , the result is...

    I do not want endless controversy with you, I have no time and it is not constructive for the reader,. I know what I say because I did class A pre-preg (not dinghy or skiff) about 8 years ago (so long before of the current trend), I use of pre-preg every day, I know perfectly this technology, so...

    this forum is very attractive, many intelligent comments and useful to all "builders and buyer's" excluded catnewbye alone continues his old stupid and senseless war "please catnewbye" forget that I exist. to clarify my earlier speech: with 5kg more we can have a class A with foil without...

    new stuff in the a-class

    yes, Doug is partially right, the boom of the foiling begins in a short time, but it is too early to take this step, you are likely to throw the future of Class A into a bottomless abyss, has not yet been shown that a cat with single crew can fly well in many conditions of wind and wave, safe...

    lift the boat from the water to 5cm or jump from wave to wave I do not call flying. what to be foil R and D?

    new stuff in the a-class

    I also wanted to say that, from personal experience, a class A flying will be totally different from the current A, is not sufficient to change the foil, you must also change hulls, mast, sail, foil location, location crossbars. in a very short time we will have the boat completely different...

    new stuff in the a-class

    if the RTNZ team builds the perfect foil for the conditions of wind-wave in the race area where he will be World Cup then can they win. but surely this configuration foil will not be suitable for many other events of class A. I think this is not good for the class association.

    new stuff in the a-class

    no problem, my English is not good, with "tailswing" mean to say the loss of degrees upwind, is how the boat moves leeward ,is the effect caused by the sideforce of the wind on the sail, largely opposed by boards .

    new stuff in the a-class

    then, in class A, frequently you lift your windward board to eliminate the friction caused by the board, if the board is asymmetric increases frictional forces , in the board windward that friction can be reduced by designing an asymmetrical profile based on the degrees of tailswing of the boat...

    new stuff in the a-class

    on Bimare ZERO we used boards slightly asymmetric, so that the angle of tailswing of the boat makes the board windward neutral, almost completely removing friction due to the asymmetry.

    new stuff in the a-class

    make the class A fly is a very big error, and I do not say this order to do good to my company but because I'm already flying well with a small Acat, I did a lot of testing, I completely understood the behavior of the boat and the result is that a class A can never be like a moth in flight...
