Background - I have 3.2 sailboats now.

Laser
Nirvanna II
Vela
University Club (Ha!)

My hopes for the Vela were speed/length/cost and to sail at our club and keep up with some of the 1M guys at the EMYC.

Initial impression - big box... lots of protective styrofoam.

Tatic radio 2.4 with digital trims looks very nice and welcome to have the full system already installed.

Boat looks well made (certainly not cheap) and very nice lines. Keel/Bulb come already put together and the weight/length suggest this boat is meant to move on the water.

Everythig is labeled on the rigging although I haven't started that yet.

Assembly should be easier than I thought.

More tomorrow.
