Totally agree . But unfortunately I’ve yet to a proper plan to put it into place or any inclination that the majority of USA clubs want it any way. And certainly in the uk it’s was the clubs that drove the change away from OD racing only.
In the uk py racing took hold due to explosion of...
No one has a proper relationship with LP as they are always looking for a way to screw you over. Ask the Laser class, Sunfish class, Holt, or any of their current suppliers or dealers.
It’s like marrying a man that been married 10 times already and expecting him to be faithful. 😂😀
Glad to hear...
I totally agree this is the most likely result.
But as we have been told the Sunfish Class Association has allowed none LP parts ( made by Sunfish direct ) to be used at their events, is it possible they might go the next stage and allow none LP made boats into their events ?
I am not saying...
Totally agree , see my earlier post about the people behind the Sol doing their due diligence. Either way , with the people behind the Sol also importing Sunfish and the similarity to the Sunfish ,there is a very big chance that Lawyers will be involved somewhere along the line.
Oh I see what you mean now , sorry . No idea whether a slightly modified boat that’s designed to conform closely to an existing boat is a new boat . The show did so I suppose that’s all that matters as far as BOTY is concerned.
I know I have not been the most supporting person on this forum about the type of boat ( mostly in jest ) .
BUT I really hope this project ( and the Rocket too) are successful. People that want to sail this type of boat deserve manufacturers that want to service and support this market and...
I guessed this was the way this boat had come to the market . I wish it the best and hope it’s dotted the I s and crossed the T s legally. Because if the Sunfish is a a true SMOD is it possible for another manufacturer to use the same hull shape ? I ask is I don’t know the answer .
Your sailing experience must be a lot wider than mine, as I don’t think I’ve ever carried a emergency repair kit and a fm radio in a singlehanded boat 😀.
On a more serious note , is there any sort of publicity about it anywhere ? I’ve tried doing a Google search and drawn a blank .
Knowing the manufacturer of the Sunfish is allegedly not the easiest to deal will , I think we could all make a guess or two. 😂
Hopefully someone that has some inside info will post some facts on the situation. .
I totally understand and I also understand it’s not going to change, but it why the USA has so many old classes . If you have a good handicap scene it allows a class to grow organically at different locations with out the need for half a dozen people to buy in to a new class at a club . Tbh...
Even I totally get this . For anyone that just want wants a fun boat on the beach it’s a great idea. But why decide to race . It’s like deciding to go cycling racing but deciding to using sit up and beg , 3 speed shopping bikes. 😂😂
Fame at last 😂. I would love to come over and experience all that the only western country that’s more [email protected]@lked up more than my own can offer . 😂😂😂😃. ( not even sure that’s true after our mini budget this week🥲😕😕).
On a serious note , does anyone knew what SOL is. Other than a rubbish beer .😀😀
