In fact an EU AC challenge would probably be similar to a Mercosur soccer team... I think that an attempt to unify the soccer teams would actually trigger revolutions (note the plural), but then, French, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, etc. under the same flag just a few decades after the two world wars is a miracle already.

Are you the manufacturer of the Argentinean F18, who brought one to Paraguay a couple of months ago? If so, post something about your boats in another thread.

Yes Luis, Im Martin
We founded the class with that boat and now we have AHPC about to build here, some Tigers imported and 4-5 Infusions already ordered.
Rigth now we have two crews in Belguim for the Worlds.

Open a new thread about F18 in South America, we need Brazil to join the fleet. I'm member of the F18 WC too, and John Williams was just named Vice-president for the Americas, some continental champiosnhip for next year must be organized.

Somethings are brewing right now and if everything goes as NOT planned add Ecuador to the mix and I am in.

I might, just MIGHT be relocating to Ecuador and taking my cap down there. Dont ask how I plan on doing it, but I will try to figure it out.

Where in Argentina do you folks sail out of?
Open a new thread in the F18 and im so there.

Just to keep this on topic, there's a great interview with Nigel Irens about the two AC boats here . Highly recommended reading.

Martin,

Sorry, I'm not the person you are looking for. I don't live in Brazil anymore and never sailed an F18.
Your man is Eduardo Penido in Rio. Last time I checked he was having plugs made for an A Class and an F18.
He won an Olympic gold medal in the 470 in 1980 and campaigned for the last Tornado olympics. He also represents North Sails in Rio and is the current chairman of the Rio de Janeiro Sailing Federation.
His company's website is http://www.edupenido.com.br/maxiboats.html - you will find reference to his F18 there.

Robi,

I've been once to Quito, capital of Ecuador, but never to Guayaquil, were people can sail. Quito is in the middle of the country, no sailing is possible.
Checking the website of their ISAF MNA (http://www.sailecuador.org/) I found no reference to multihulls of any kind, only 7 affiliated clubs and 7 affiliated classes.
I have a close Ecuatorian non-sailing colleague, so in case you want to ask about other things just send a PM.

All the best,


Luiz

I would probably support such a nationality rule if each US state would be identified as a seperate entity.

And the Kiwis will still show up the rest of the world.

This is ridiculous. The nationality rule is a good rule. It applies quite well to other sports like football (the soccer variety) and rugby at an international level.
