    Using a dinghy for personal use and using a dinghy for a college sailing school are two very different use cases. Different boats are going to be best for the different use cases. Same could be said for Olympic and non-Olympic boats.

    "non-stick"? LOL! I think you mean non-slip. I would like to see someone try to sail one of these with a Teflon non-stick coating on it...

    It is difficult to understand how this race worked and how it went But it seems clear that it was fairly informal anyway. My take away is that everyone probably had fun, which I think is the point anyway.

    OK. Thanks. More expensive, and better for performance...

    I sail in one little one day, three race regatta each summer in which after each race the first place switches boats with last place, second switches boats with second to last, etc. It's intended to equalize the effect of slower vs. faster boats. And make the whole thing less serious and more...

    I liked the vid. No way for any one video (or boat) to be all things for all people. Looks great! If a fleet materializes, and I get some time and money, I would love to get one and sail it for competition and fun!

    I was wondering if they meant D-One. I have not heard of anything called the D-Zero. But the D-One is considerably more complicated, with an asym, no?
