Yeah,

Pleased with the Hydes giving loads of power, proven at Inlands now.

We have now had to turn our attention to the tall silver twig that controls the sails.

Thats what I call out of class!!! rule 13.3 states in part "no window will be less than 150mm from any edge of the sail to witch it is fitted" it also says that total window area in any one sail shall not exceed 0.19sqm. Cant say without a tape but looks big to me. If that is allowable perhaps we could have nonwoven sails with a small patch of woven cloth and call the sail the window insta=esd of vece versa.

That's not a window, it's a pair of french doors.



Health & Safety gone mad, perhaps crews don't shout STARBOARD!!! on these waters.



Can't read how it can be in class, probably the 'window trial' carried out last year, or whenever.



I see that 'Rooster' charge you per window, this sort of thing could get pricey?

Warner was trialing the double window last year (he had one on the boat he sailed at Looe) with special dispensation (so dont worry Sam).

It looks like his trials have moved up a gear.

That looks like a whole greenhouse rather than a window!

Now where is that recent post by Yurv Beanhad?

My Spies have been busy this week. [img]smileys/smiley16.gif
Can you spot the dodgy sail number? Or have they been selling a lot of Albs on the other side of the pond?

Not quite as bad as this though : http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/photos/?s=64&PID=33226
