Good God. Just curious ffs.
I guess the tone didn't come across. I suppose I could have added an eye rollCalm down and don’t have a stroke Bill. It’s not like anything is going to change or opinions are going to shift. It’s a fun diversion with occasional new developments and interesting insights. And music. It’s SA for gosh sake. Take a chill pill and go sailing.
Oh that’s right; you can’t. Sorry; not sorry. But Spring will show up any day now!
And music @Bill5. You gotta add some music LOL.I guess the tone didn't come across. I suppose I could have added an eye roll

I am not answering any boat questions LOL other than to say my view and goals are clear. I don't buy Chinese crap if it can be avoided and I don't want to help fund a broken organization like ILCA that undermines the grass roots sailors and abandons the core principles the class and Laser was built on.
Right about now Tiller is wondering if I bought an Aero...
Pics or it didn't happen.I love this place! And ILCA leadership still sucks. And... yes I bought a boat.
I could have used that tonnage while sailing today. Even with the radial. And while I ain't posting pics of it, you can come see it here....Pics or it didn't happen.
Even though the Laser/ILCA is one of the most successful boats ever, the number of sales, dominated by the sales in Europe, is relatively low. We're only talking about a few million dollars turnover, split by several parties.Returning to my original question; if LPE are not now responsible for the high price of class legal sails who is, and, are they pocketing the huge profit margin we were previously told on the forums was being taken by LPE?
Because if you want to sail in ILCA regattas you have to have a class legal sail, so it has more value, so they price it higher.I never understood why a "Class Compliant sail" (£410) is £130 cheaper than a "Class Legal sail" (£540) here in the UK. The only difference is one has a red button!
No, I have never claimed that anything that current ILCA leadership has done is fair value. Not just sails. There is nothing about an ILCA that one could argue is even remotely fair value. Way over priced for what it is.Has anybody ever claimed that Laser sails are fair value?
Of the OD single handed dingies with new boats available on the market. Which ones would you consider "fair" in their value?No, I have never claimed that anything that current ILCA leadership has done is fair value. Not just sails.
