If you email me a class logo I'll setup a page in the Classes Section of YachtsandYachting.com

Keep me posted with any class news and we'll keep the page updated. Send reports from your class racing to club@yachtsandyachting.com .

Delighted to read how many projections have east coast homes!

We should really look to find an event many of us can do. Medway Regatta
perhaps?

I think you are absolutely correct Stefan.  The cost benefit analysis to be done by each owner would kill the idea quite quickly......The rating spread is fairly tight in any case......those who choose to go for the big kites and overlength poles are penalised with a rating increase.

 

Perhaps other owners of Projections with more experience of racing one another on IRC with slight rating and boat differnces would comment about how satisfactory they feel the IRC rating differences really are in practice....??????  Is it worth carrying the bigger kites and poles even though penalised by IRC? 

Considered comments that take account of results over a whole season rather than just one race would be most helpful.......

Never enough time for sailing

Would it be an idea to post our IRC ratings to see quite how tightly grouped we all are? Our 2006 rating is 0.973

2000   0.973

2002   0.972

2003  0.971

From the figures on the Certs no measurements changed in that period.

Significant is the SPA @ 40.55 and SPL @ 3.08

How big is yours?

So , for us new guys to 762's , do we have anyone with interesting info to help us ? Rig settings ?  I have 45 , 40 and 35 M kites , when would I use the 35 ? I have 2 poles ,one 3.1 and one 3.2 m , I'm using and rated for the 3.2 . Is there anything I should know abouthow to handle big waves , up and down wind ? Am planning to change chain plates after winter series , I'm told they can be a prob .

Will the boat break if She is pushed too hard ?

Am sailing from Royal Northumberland YC , we have a mixed SB fleet , lots of Corks , melges ,  Ben 25 , Sigma 8's etc ..

Aiming to be at Cowes week 07,       Doug.

Hi all

I've now made a Projection 762 class page on YachtsandYachting.com - all I need is event reports, a description, calendar dates, links, photos etc. and it will be more use than the currently empty page!

Cheers

Mark
