1.20 and 9.46 would be more in line with the actual changes, which would make 1135, so yes, 1171 ought to make it fairly competitive given a decent rig and foils.

Hull and foil are great but the sail - ugh.

The best bit is the entertainment from a) sailing it myself (15 St) and b) watching Matt sail it! Last time out the rivets holding the hounds onto the mast failed :-(


National 12 "Spider" 2523
Finn K468 'Captain Scarlet'

British Moth, 630, early 60's 'Pisces'

!!!! Not CVRDA !!!!
Comet Trio - something always ready to sail.
