Hood River Carnage - Short Video


Not a very long look but representative of the start of the day. As time went by we saw some increase and some pretty good gusts at times.

Sorry Guys but I will be unable to attend this year. I miss my Kingston friends and this event.
Love doing 40 + races in swell over 2 days. It is always a fun time with a perfect spot with the club right there on the water.

Fun time's indeed.

76 entries so far I think Gav?

Should be a good one, looking forward to it.

Liz may be out, but Philip will probably take a look from the castle windows now he's retired

I wish! I had such a great time at the last one. Maybe next year! I think the event is full anyway?
US nationals are on my books for this year - as long as we have no problems with a hurricane messing me up this time!
Plenty of room for a few of our UK friends to enter???????

Lester Gilbert?


I was just over at the Lester Gilbert page and the last post was in 2015... Just wondering if he's still around? Boy does that guy really know his stuff ...

Mr. Gilbert is the current head of IRSA. He has a long and controversial history with the IOM class. Ask around....

Lester is Chairman of the Executive Committee at IRSA. IRSA is the world governing body for all the International Classes of radio sailing. Governance of the IOMs is deferred by IRSA to the IOM Class Association - IOMICA.
He has had some personal things to pay attention to lately and has not been so active in radio sailing circles, but can report that he is gradually returning to his role.

Within these limits, the variation height of the lower point for each rig ... +/- 5mm


Do l understand correctly that we cannot have the lower mark for example an A Rig @ 60 mm from the deck and a B Rig @ 100 mm ?

Further, if this is correct, does anyone know why ?

Cheers Alan
Hi Alan,
When I first read this, I interpreted that a variation of +/-5mm for each rig could mean that the lower limit mark for each individual rig could be between 55mm and 105mm. However, that would allow lower limit marks outside the min. 60mm and max.100mm limits, not "within these limits".
Therefore, my interpretation would be that if the lower mark of an A rig was, say, 65mm, then a B rig could have a lower mark at 60mm to 70mm. If the B rig mark was 60mm with an A rig at 65mm, then a C rig could only have a limit mark between 60 and 65mm and still be within +/-5mm of both A and B rigs.

Can anyone advise why all three makers of BritPops have not updated their websites in quite some time? Robot is showing 2015 pricing, Vinaixa is showing V6 and V7's on their home page and Nautae is saying that 2012 promises to be a busy year. Just want to get current prices and lead times for a local customer here in the US.

Hi Murray,

I think your are correct with your interpretation, l just have trouble trying to understand as to why there is a rule inside a rule ?

Thanks all the same. Cheers Alan

The only question ....Does it shrink like every other line l find on the market ?

Best l can find so far has 10% shrinkage, thats 10 mm over 100 mm !!! ....l would pay double current pricing for line that does not shrink
