I know most of you here can appreciate cool race pix, these where taken last saturday with BIG winds.
This is from a long distance race of approx 25nm on a lake.
It was a downwind start with 20-30kt winds, it stayed downwind all the way to the halfway point where you have to go round an island and go return to the finish line.
99 boats entered, 54 started, 31 finished, and 18(!) broken masts.
I didnt go this years because it is a long drive (2,5h) and it either blows too much or too little every time I went.

Is that a CF20 or an infusion? I can't tell from the size of the pic.


NEVERMIND.

Look at how far the CF20 is coming out of the water in this pic!!! Amazing!

The landing craft chase boat (pick up the pieces) is very cool.

That is a serious crash boat.

This is a weird crew position for sailing downwind in conditions like that,
the skipper has won it a few times so I guess there must be something to it.
(He is a member of my club as well, I will ask him next time).

There are a couple of videos of the CF20 as well:

What's the black thing sticking out of the hull forward of the shroud? Another daggerboard? Some kind of foil? What is this boat anyway?

I does look like a foil. His position is all about keeping the bow and foil up. The last thing you want is that foil angled down at speed.


Have Fun

Yes those are boards sticking out of the hull, he has been using them on and off for the last few years.
From what I understand they become effective above a certain windrange.
Crazy dangerous if you pitchpole though, slice-n-dice... ;-)

Think you are looking at an optical illusion caused by a sun and shadow effect. Hullis all there.

They are plates thast are designed to provide some lift; they are sailing a White Formula 20. I think it is John Dr Vrijs (Spelling??) boat and he is helming.

ahhh, you are correct.. it took me a minute to see the actual bow. with the shadow across it, and the hard angle of the hull, it looked like the transom of the wild cat.. i thought maybe it's the new wave blocking hull shape smile
