You Crikey boys are nuts! We found the 48sqm kite difficult enough in a blow... Don't forget that the higher hoist position isn't directly supported = risk of pulling off the top of the rig. Glad to hear you're having fun,though.

Getting on ok with the J92 now, although I found it difficult to become friends with the boat first of all… I couldn’t get any speed out of it upwind (much slower than the Projection!). It took a new suit of sails and a slow realisation that it’s a boat that doesn’t like being pressed to get it up to speed. We fitted a masthead hoist and now use an 88sqm asy. All good now, but I still miss the sensation of being pulled off my feet in the Projection when the kite goes up, the 92 can be quick but it takes a while to get there compared with your boat. It was a hard act to follow!

Hi All,

I have just become the owner of Quiet Tango, based out of Fambridge on the Crouch in Essex. Good to see there is still a good following for Projections now they are getting a little older. I apologise for the stupid questions I will ask in advance

Hi Sailors,

For this season we would like to order new spinnaker for our P762. We have one quite good runner, about 46.5m2 (maybe somebody remembe white with red F, "the F word"), and we would like to have some S3 reacher, maybe somebody have some recommendations, measurements or tips for this kind of spinnakers for  Projection 762.

Redards

Hi thomas we went a sail this year and haven't looked back. We have a 55m2 runner and a 45m2 reacher. We are carrying the big kite in some big breeze and the boat is lighting up. Jamesrose do you still need to know track size?

We're on the look out for a replacement kite as ours is knackered/blown! We've got Burnham week coming up so so time to get a new one made. Does anyone have one a spare kicking around that they might want to sell?
