hull resistance
by Leo Ambtman / 07/28/21 07:00 PM

Can anybody tell me what is the difference in resistance sailing on two hulls against sailing on one (lifting one out) in ideal conditions (windforce three)? Personally I think between 10 and 15 percent less resistance. Is there any scientific research done about this?

Trip to TX SPI or CC in Early Oct
by Banzilla / 07/05/21 04:17 PM

Hello everybody,

So a few of us NM sailors are planing a trip to the Corpus Christi or South Padre Islands area in early to mid October, and would love to find an RV park that has easy beach access and hopefully Mast us storage. There will be at least 3 RVs and boats, no extra cars that we know of at this time.

We normally would be heading to the Fleet 514 Pinata Regatta but the park filled up much faster then expected.

Any Ideas would be very much appreciated.

Suggestions light wind big chop?
by fa1321 / 05/08/21 12:26 PM

What is a good catamaran for light winds and big chop from heavy boat traffic? Would a bigger cat like a Supercat or Hobie 20 or 21 smooth out the ride and keep moving?

Anyone know how to get ahold of Mike (username Tornado), or know whether or not he sold his Tornado?

Broken daggerboard Hobie Wildcat 2010
by Arjan13 / 08/10/20 10:34 PM

Recently we have bought a 2010 Wildat. Last weekend we took it out for sailing for the third time. When we were using the spinnaker with 12 knots of wind, we met a rather large wave, which completely broke off our daggerboard, directly below the hull.

We were sailing the board like 40cm up, while the tuning guide even states to pull it only 20cm up. In the meantime I've heard similar stories from other sailors.

Is this normal? If the boards cannot handle these conditions why put it in a tuning guide like this? Does anybody know which heights are save? Otherwise it becomes an expensive "Hobie"

Dumb question ?
by DaleYoung / 07/11/20 04:46 AM

Don't judge me. I'm completely new to this. This is just a thought.
I'm refurbishing a Supercat 17 , and prepping the mast so that water cannot get into it. Would it be a stupid idea to fill it full of foam packing peanuts so as to displace any water that could possibly get in if it did? They weigh almost nothing and would allow drainage.
Dumb idea?

Shipping Masts?
by Tornado / 05/11/20 04:48 PM

Anyone have a good solution for shipping masts/beams etc (for H16,18, Tornado; see AD over on across North America?

My Dad's got a load of new old stock masts/beams sitting in his barn I'd like to see go to a decent home rather than ulitmately melted down to become recycled.

by John Williams / 02/19/20 12:50 AM

hi folks -

i've received a few inquiries, seen some requests and gotten some facebook messages and calls about ground crew for the 2021. i'd like to try and consolidate that information here in order to connect people as efficiently as possible.

post in this thread if you are looking for an opportunity to be ground crew, or if you're a team that needs a manager, pusher, sailor or psychiatrist. there will be a link to this thread on the Worrell website and on the Worrell Facebook page.

as of today, there are only five team slots left. i know of four more teams that are planning to sign up.
