With fourteen firsts and five seconds, out of twenty four races, I think we can safely say Ian's V9 is not slow.
Congrat's to Ian for sailing a nice regatta.

Sounds good, although I suspect he would have done much the same
with his v8... Or with a bp!

Don't think he'd have done it with an mx based on how martin got on when he swapped his Cheinz for a mx14mk17b2 or whatever the current one is called...

Talking to Martin at the Championship, he mentioned sailing a 'Mojo' in Italy.

See page 456.

Hey guys.
Question for the IOM Builders out there.

I acquired a ballast this weekend, in great shape. It was given to me, but of-course it's a weird weight. I'm wondering if it's really any use.

Are there any IOMs that use a 4.59pound (2.08kg) ballast?
it seems to me that most IOMs are around a 5.25 pound (2.4kg) ballast.

Supposedly it should be for a US1M, however it's heavy for that.
Is this thing of any use? Are there any design names we know of that use a ballast like that?

I was there to witness that the V9 seems quicker than the V8 downwind. I guess this is due to the turned up nose for less severe nose dives and a wider stern. However Ian was sailing very well nailing almost every start.

Min weight for IOM keel is 2200g. (Inc fin)
Not sure anyone uses less than close to the max weight on their IOM.

As you have a min. weight for IOM of 4.000g it doesn't make any sense to sail anything less than the max of 2.500g for fin and lead.
