Ras,Having entered a SuperCat20 in the Worrell 1000, I highly endorse the SuperCat 19 for your 4th attempt. Tough boat but don't fall to the temptation to add too much extra complexity and sail area like we did with the 20.
Really impressed with how solid the SC 19's build is, I repaired the various ouchies she had and beefed up the transoms, that was it.
Kept it pretty simple, added a mast rotator, diamonds and a roller boom. Mainsail is a slightly shorter luff dacron square-top, jib is a dacron Tornado on a roller.
Kite is a 21sqm F 18 deal out on a Sunfish spar, going to have a 10 knot max on the kite, we have a "butt on the boat" policy for the EC, risk vs reward, ya know.
Hope we don't regret not using the big G Cat, she was a freight train last year in open water, but her draft is a liability that we feel could prevent us from breaking the 2 day mark, our goal.
Our plan eventually is to slow down and "smell the roses" eventually, hopefully after we break 2 days....
The Everglades Challenge has become something of a obsession for Nate and I, (myself more than Nate) I was so burned out on fleet racing, the EC is a amazing kick in the pants, THANK YOU CHIEF!
