Thank you Mark.  I try to chase up some facts and figures plus ask a few snappers to contribute.......there are some nice photos of the boat out there but most are copywrite.......

I used to run a class association website and found that most marine photographers were happy to let you use their photos so long as 1. you asked first and 2. you acknowleged their copyright.

Incidentally almost everything is copyright, whether it explicity says so or not. In UK law you don't need to register for copyright protection in order for it to apply.

Hi. I Just found this thread, I own "Zulu", GBR7622, & race from Cardiff. I'm definately up for some place (like this?) where we can swap ideas, but I'm not sure about a full-blown class association.

From what I've seen all the boats rate close enough on IRc that we could race level without being an OD. We did Cork in '04 and there was another 762 called "Radio Star" from Brighton in our class. We had great racing and despite having different sized kites & different ratings as I recall every race corrected out the same as our on-the-water positions. there's no need to worry about a couple of clicks on IRc.

On another matter, our main opposition is J80s, which give us a problem with their 65m2 kites. Has anybody tried a masthead kite on a projection? I reckon it would be fun & IRc-kindly.

Kev.

Hi Guys!

I purchased Projection 7126 "Nemo" in June and have been racing under IRC this summer on the East Coast. We are based on the Medway and there are currently 3 other Projections that join our keelboat racing. Each boat has different handicaps, 0.971, 0.969, 0.968 and 0.965. Not once this year has the order of position over the water been changed by the handicap. The small difference in the handicap can almost be neglected as one point is roughly 6 seconds an hour.

We have competed this year in 3 of the Sail East regattas on the East Coast and are planning to do them all next year. It would be great to see more Projections there as the sailing and parties are awesome!

We have definately enjoyed having 3 other Projections to sail against this year and it would be great to have a bigger turn out for next year.

Check out www.saileast.org

Class association sounds a good idea, got loads of photos of the boat. Does anyone want them for the class site?

cheers

Mark

Hey Mark

It seems like there is a real cluster of proj owners on the east coast! I'll
definitely be bringing mine out to play for Port of Felixstowe (we're based at
levington) and poss Dabchicks.

Got to balance it all with EAORA commitments though!

Data, Data, data, data, data,  please.......use PM to end details I will respond to any that include thheir Email address.......Thanks

Oh and anews of any pictures that you can grant copywrite for publication on the web (with aknowledgements) would be most useful.........still trying to set up a dedicated site more anon.......

Hi Guys ,

This  poss may be of interest to some . Royal Northumberland YC are holding The Northern SB Champs next spring, 12th & 13th May. We have a mixed fleet here , Melges,Corks,Sigmas ,Ben 25 and my 762 ,we had a good turnout last year,its a real fun Regatta with lots of freebies inc. lift in and out .Hoping to be sponsored by a beer co. like last year.I am told RNYC know how to party .       http://www.rnyc.org.uk/

It would be great to see another 762 !  Some use Regatta as a warm up for Tarbert. I know we are a long way from anywhere though.
