    I met Meade and Jan after they called me from Florida and were standing on the beach admiring one of the first Weta's in the US (they were very helpful to this new owner showing their love for sailing and helping people enjoy sailing).  They soon after showed up in Duck (with a converted ATV...

    The future of the WETA?

    Bob, Good luck on the sales pitch. Weta has always envisioned this boat being a single handed and double handed racing boat. The provisions in the class rules have been their since day one. Having the option gives owners the choice to go alone or bring the family and still have some fun...

    The future of the WETA?

    C. Excellent summation of where Weta is right now. Thanks for your kind words about me, but I would be remiss to not mention the hard work of all our Weta dealers like Davo, Dick Hitchcock, Bob Gleason, Scott Wilson and our newest West Coast Dealer, George Yioulos with West Coast Sailing...
