Sorry for such short notice, but we'll be in Annapolis this Wed - Oct 13, doing sea trials and evaluation for Sailing World magazine.

If you are interested in checking it out in person - pm me and I'll try to work you into the schedule.

Where are you launching from Mike?


Hell... if you stick around for the weekend... West River is hosting the Pumpin Patch regatta... Should be 20 cats or so. With F18's N20's F16's A cats and perhaps a few Hobies.

I'm launching from a private residence. I don't have the location yet...

Wish I could stick around for the weekend, but already have a commitment to be somewhere else.

We're launching off the beach at River Drive, just south of Back Creek.

We'll be here until sunset.

Tad,
This is a sailing site for catamaran sailors please post somewhere else. Try "SA brown noser.com" or "look at my post count . com" they might fit you better.
As usual, you still need a taller glove.

Where's my rum and my harness?

Dave and I had a great time in Annapolis with the boat, too bad it was only a day trip.

We set up and went out about noon, the breeze was a steady 15, sun was out, and temps were in the 60's.
We chased down and passed the Gunboat 66, a few Farr 40's, and various other boats on the bay.
About 4:00 we met up with the Sailing World judges, and the plan was to take them each out for about 20 mins, then spend an hour or so going over the boat and debriefing afterwards.

I got the first judge on the boat, we went sailing and after a while the support RIB comes roaring up and tells the judge that it's been an hour, his time is over, and let someone else come sail the boat. It went on this way for the rest of the day, and we ended up sailing until the sun set. The most common comment of the day, was "I used to sail a Hobie 16, and this ain't no Hobie 16!!!"

Needless to say it was a great outing, and think we'll get some good press out of it for catamaran sailing in general.

Also, while we setting up and tearing down the boat, I lost count of the number of passerbys, neighbors, and people that were driving down the street that stopped to check out the boat, ask questions, and were very curious what kind of catamaran it was. It generated a huge amount of interest in general.

Sounds like you had a great day Mike! I can't wait to read the write up from Sailing World. BTW, did you drive each and every judge or did two of them take it out? I only ask because I would think they wouldn't have the knowledge to max perform the boat without an experienced driver/crew on board, and unless the boat is being maxed out, well...they could poo-poo it.

They were all very experienced sailors. I went out them one at a time, gave them the helm, pulled the strings, and gave them some feedback on sailing the boat.

Dave stayed on the beach and answered all of the tech questions, etc.

Looks like a lot of fun.

So what happens when you put your weight way forward and try to stuff it?

lol. So the curved boards go from rising planes, to dive planes....

Boat looks like an absolute hoot to sail. I'd be screwing around waaaaayyyy too often just to get it to lift clear.
