I have a VICTOR MODEL A3 , building a footy for my little girl right now then a black hawk for my wife. I also have wildcat, solin 50, and a robbe trimaran in line to be built. Gess you can say I have the bug. Its hard to get out and sail life in the way right now. I will try to get out and see you guys. Could I sail my A3 at your pound? Not looking to race just want to learn more about the hobby.Thanks Mike
Mike you are welcome at Hansen Dam anytime. Saturdays there is a mix of fast electric , scale , and sailboats. Usually a couple of one meters on Sat. Although I have seen as many as a dozen sailboats on a Saturday afternoon. Second and last Sundays we race, IOMs and ODOMs second Sunday, US1M and RG65 and MicroMagics the fourth Sunday. Come on out and enjoy the day !!

You need more wind

That is a nice boat

I just bought a Graupner Butterfly Trimaran from Germany....waiting for it to be shipped to Canada and then for the water to un-freeze

You videos and pictures are always first class! I was looking at the photo you posted (I reposted it here) trying to identify all the different boats shown in the photo.
I can make out several of them but was wondering if you could provide an accurate list of the boats in this photo.

From left to right I think I see a Fairwind lll, Yamaha RTW, HK Focus, another Yamaha RTW, your Triana, ?, 3 or 4 Micro Magic's, ????? perhaps a Fortune 612 next to the Yellow sub. Can't make out there rest.
Just curious - your group has some very nice boats!
Thanks again for sharing with us

Wow! Another terrific video. I can see the photo on my iphone but not in the post?
So I copied and posted again so all could see it. Can't make out the make of the white boat to the right of the Fortune 612. I am not up on war ships but from what I can see in the picture it looks great too! Nice fleet for sure and an amazing setting for sailing!
Thank you -
