    Jan Gougeon's "hull 3, Pocket Rocket" was recently sold and is moving to the Seattle area, where the owners plan to restore her and race in the RA2AK.

    I'm looking forward to more multihulls in NC! Looks like I'll have to bring Janet to the coast on occasion.

    Gougeon 32 Roll Call

    Still trying to figure out the best way to run 2 sets of sheets to the rudders. Here's the latest attempt (which is pretty close to how Meade had it set up when I bought it)

    Gougeon 32 Roll Call

    That's actually pretty close. I'll have to check that out. Lake Norman is in Charlotte, NC.  Light air today but still worth going.

    Gougeon 32 Roll Call

    I'd love that.  I'll try to get Janet there. My trailer is in rough shape but I have time to sort that out.  Janet C (or Flipper) is going to the Multihull championships in Bay City in 2022 as well.  I'm hoping Janet can make it, and John (Flipper's owner) will come with me to crew.  Lake...

    Radikal 26 folding system

    Mast raising and lowering doesn't get much easier than a G32.  The boom is the gin pole, and the main sheet pulls the mast up.

    Radikal 26 folding system

    Sounds like a fun project Russ!  There's a Supercat 20 tall rig that I was thinking about building a center hull for, but I figured the L7 sliding beams would be easier for a mere mortal to build. I like the updated version of the Sardine run trimaran with sliding beams.

    Spare Trimaran in Wales, compass heading?

    It would have been fun to be a part of a multihull gathering in NC.  But I can't fault you for heading south.

    Gougeon 32 Roll Call

    The Drama for us starts around 16 knots of boatspeed, and when the water ballast is needed to keep her on her feet.

    Gougeon 32 Roll Call

    Where did you find those flat water boatspeeds?  Do you know the TWS that goes along with those boatspeeds?   I've been trying to figure out the fastest/most controllable sail/ballast combinations with John on Flipper this year. And getting an average 10.6 knots upwind with just a main and jib...

    When You Shouldn't Go Out But You Do Anyway [email protected]#$%

    We are rebuilding the multi fleet at LNYC.  We would love to have you participate if you would be up to fighting traffic again.  I'm the multihull fleet captain; PM for details.  Most of the folks here are new to cat racing and some new to racing in general, so seasoned folks willing to help...

    how would you respond to this missive from your commodore?

    Kinda sounds like no one at your club likes you very much. I've read only one of your posts and at this point I can't say I blame them.
