I know we have folks on here who have actually done some Worrell's so I'm wondering if anyone has a budget they could share? 15
As catamaran races go, the east coast distance races are some of the more expensive due to the fact that you are stopping in a new beach resort area every night. So hotels are expensive since you need to be right on the beach.
For the Worrell you'd need at least one hotel room per night for 16 nights, but probably two because of the need for ground crew.
RV's would save cash but aren't practical for everyone due to the lack of parking at most stops, hard enough to find a place for the trailers the ground crew are pulling.
So besides the entry fee (not nothing) and 32 nights in a hotel at $200-$300 per night what are the other major expenses?
Ideas for shaving down the budget?
The original bandit race, everyone leave Fort Lauderdale and let us know when you get to the bar at Virginia Beach, sleep on the beach when you have to, no support... was a lot cheaper!

Hi Everyone! I have a 1987 Nacra 18SQ that I was looking to do some modifications to and would appreciate some input. 2
I'm planning to add a jib for additional speed & to make this beast of a boat tack better. It'll require a new forestay at the minimum since the current one parts about 1 meter down form the mast attachment. Would it be a good idea to fabricate a bridal foil to better distribute the load onto the hulls? Has anyone here ever done this before?
I'd like to upgrade the hulls to something a little larger than the 5.5 hulls it currently has so it can better handle 2-3 people on it during a lazy afternoon. Is there any harm in using some 1986 foam core 5.8 or 6.0 hulls in its place?

The Aussie Nacra National Titles for 2018-2019 are at Great Lakes Sailing Club, near Forster in New South Wales. This is a top location where the Wildcat regatta is held every year, camping is available on site and you book your camp site when you register for the event or there is plenty of accommodation in the town or local resorts if you book early enough. Last time this event was held in NSW we had 24 x 5.8's on the start line, we should have more than 30 this time. It's a great event for kids as well with so many boats like the 350, 430, 450, 5.0, F15 and then there are so many kids on the larger boats. The F18's, F17's, 16 squares should have large fleets again plus the other smaller classes like, 14 squares, 18 squares, 5.7, F16, and so on. All up there should be more than 80 boats, this sailing club knows how to run big events that are great fun on and off the water so if you've got a Nacra come along and join the fun, 4
I bought a 2003 Flyer A-Cat. Mostly to sail for fun. I believe their are about 4-5 regattas to go to a year, but I am supposing it’s not to competitive. I am not to concerned. But how far out of date am I on a development class? 2
I’m not to worried bout being last, but if everything is much faster should I upgrade something on the boat?

We are having our 14th annual Around PEC long distance event on Lake Ontario.
Aug 3,4,5,6 2018
200+ km over 3 days of some of the best sailing you will have this year.
I am surprised that over the years we have not had any US boats join us.
Legendary wind conditions (CORK regattas in Kingston are close by) http://www.nacra.ca/AroundPEC/NOR.htmlhttp://www.nacra.ca/AroundPEC/2018PEC.pdf
After years of sailing a Hobie 18, we reluctantly sold it (it was getting on in years and needed work) and simplified with a Getaway (still fun, but we miss the 18!). Anyway: does anyone have an idea of how to adjust the rudder assembly so that the fittings connecting the rudder arms to the tiller crossbar don't rub against and gouge the topside of the hulls? It seems like there should be more space between them. 1
