It is my understanding that the boat BG used is an actual production boat, Brad was sailing it to make sure the production boats met his standards.

His orginal red boat is in the USA and won the Ranking Event that the new owner, Dennis Rogers, sailed it in.

The original red boat was sailed by Dennis Rogers in the Hood River Carnage, a ranked IOM event at Hood River Marina in the Columbia Gorge this July. This is one of the windiest locations in the US. Although the Gorge was uncommonly calm during the three day event, the conditions were still robust. As expected the BritPop sailed fast and well mannered in all conditions. Dennis is an excellent skipper but the boat was special.

There are some good pictures of the BritPop slicing through the waves on the Oregon Model Yacht Club's website www.omyc.org Go to the gallery section and click the HoodRiver Carnage section.

Minor Clarification,
We called racing a couple hours early on Sunday when the winds hit middle C conditions on a day forecast for low A conditions. We did have a crash boat that was deemed by some to be inadequate for the developing conditions despite the operator's opinion that is was adequate and was immediately used to retrieve marks. Saturday's crash boat would have been more than adequate had it been available on Sunday. A good portion of the 3 day regatta was sailed in B rig.

We have already arranged for an appropriate crash boat for all 3 days of the 2012 event.

No he did not.

It is my understanding that the boat he sailed at the Worlds was on loan from Victoria McNulty and was returned to her after the Worlds
