I am curious how to handle the boards.
When you pull them up do you stand over them, or on the tramp pulling in the curve direction?
I'm guessing they do have to go up a bit when going downwind above a certain windrange?

Looks like the main hasn't "flopped" over yet.

If a man is to be obsessed by something.... I suppose a boat is as good as anything... perhaps a bit better than most.

So does this boat have to be taken apart or come with a tilt trailer? 10.5 ft beam right?

I know what you're talking about. They feel more like a thick roll of plastic than cloth.... is that what you mean to suggest?


not really, what I mean is that the sails feels more "solid" like if it would be very hard to fold [they didn't let me...}. I have a N20 one design, with 2 year old sails, but my sails really feel different

btw. the sails are crosscut


That looks like a fabric with a much wider scrim pattern and thicker scrim threads.


I believe the sail fabric is dimension "Flex". The scrim can be poly,carbon or kevlar. It's designed to be sewn cross-cut.


Have Fun

Ok... you 20 sailors are going to bite my head off for this one...
The F20 looks like a refined and stretched Infusion hull...
Should Nacra take this design and make an Infusion2?
I say according to F18 spirit... ABSOLUTELY!!! If they have the technology they may as well use it.
I think the Infusion is a great but there are obviously flaws in every design.. maybe the F20 hull is better in the lighter range than the infusion.

Doesn't standard logic say Add down haul to get the sail to flop over in light air.
