As many people have let me see their boats and help me make this decision.

I'm sure you'll have a great ride! Be fun to give it a go at NA's if you make it down!

I will fore warn you that you will want to push that boat HARD before GT. i'd also get a spare of each foil. New boat designs have a habit of failures racing offshore in big wind and waves.

Sailed the Capricorn 2 today. Nice well built boat, setup is pretty typical and works well. Only had two small issues. 1. Daggerboards are so long that you can run aground before you see the bottom. 2. We fducked up rigging the spanner and retrieval line and the spanner was catching pulling the kite halyard out of the cleat.

"spanner": Australian for any kind of lever or arm.


I'm boatless.

He's talking about the rotator, Karl - I had to learn Aussie English when I got to sail with Goodall.

Thats quite cool.

I dont know crap from clay when it comes to boat building. I had no idea the frames were finished of in 2 halves like that. Makes a fair bit of sense i reckon. Means you can do a really neat job before the halves are joined.

Are all f18s done like this?

super cool.

And you just glop on some thickened resin and glue the two halves together?

I will find out the exact process. I was offered the chance to go watch my boat be made but it was too much to fly there for a couple days.

You should ask them to put covers on the lasers, you don't want you boat catching a case of slow and shitty from them.

They want to show the Lasers what they can be when they grow up.
