My boat (7633R, built November 1998) is Hull No19 if that helps shed any
light!

And it's the boat you used to sail Barnsie!

After a flurry of activity in December (when I wasn't able to post) this topic seems to have gone a bit quiet...

I just wanted to reconfirm my support for the idea of a 762 class association. Have any owners heard from Brys who was the original author of this thread? I'm worried I may have missed the boat...

I'm still watching with interest , I've had a couple of e's from Brys , the assoc sounds good to me but I'm not so keen on one design ,SBR might well suit me, so far from anywhere.

To have others at hand to share probs and get info from is great .

I understand some people's reluctance for one-design in this case; I'm a Laser sailor so initially it made sense - true boat-on-boat racing (well...), stops cash from becoming the vital ingredient, etc etc. However the more I think about it in the case of the 762 there probably aren't enough in existence for one-design to work. The association is vital though. In my experience classes have risen and fallen on the strength and enthusiasm of a class association (as have boat values) and although we're not planning any trips away to race against other 762's this season I look forward to it next year!

Incidentally, Doug, mysteriously there seems to be an assymetric kite in our sail wardrobe...

Hi Guys,

Sorry to be quiet for so long. I am now back in harness after a prolonged recovery from an equestrian accident. Therefore "time is not my own" at present!

When I kicked off the idea of a class association it was very much ment to be a virtual entity. We have generated a lot of discussion on this site and word has obviously got around. I still think that to keep work to a minimum and cost at a zero level we could continue to use the very good facility that Y&Y provide to keep in touch. Several people have used the Private message facility to pass their private email addresses to me and I have reciprocated. I am slowly building an offline database of owners and boats and their opinions viz one dsesign and other issues of intrest.

If things start to get out of hand and we get asked to move along by Y&Y we can easily move to  MySpace site.......

If anyone wishes to access the data (still quite small amounts) I have, and they are an owner/crew of a Projection and have sent their details I will be happy to pass on boat info etc...but in the first instance if you wish to contact each other why not use the PM facility here.

I am NOT in fvaour of going down a One Design route.......the boat can easily race one on one (as per a BOX rule) If we all keep our IRC certs up to date IF we ever get together in any serious numbers (say more than 3) we can see what IRC does for us and if the small rating differences make any odds.....Until that time which I hope will be soon!

I would think that Falmouth would be the best candidate for a meeting of boats and people and would also suggest that to join in a Falmouth week would be the easisest option for all parties.....What do you think?  Bear in mind that three boats are already regularly racing in the area. Falmouth is a very nice August holiday destination for families not involved in the sailing and the road links & boat handling is pretty good. (albeit a fairly long haul from anywhere!).

Happy new year to all Projectionists and Happy sailing in 2007.

Falmouth sounds like a chuckle, especially as there are a few proj's there already. Won't be making it this year but could be one to consider for 2008.

I'd be very keen to know what the East Coast boats will be up to when they have their calendars done. Will be making a big effort to go to those where other projections will be out.

Brys is my old man, hopefully i'll get my hands on the boat for a couple of events like sail east (west mersea and felixstowe) maybe burnham week/ramsgate week, depending on work and crew.

Hopefully we'll get a calender sorted soon

Hallo Brys, I'm sorry to hear of your accident. I hope that you're making a good recovery.

I'll send you another PM because I can't remember whether or not I included my email address.

My only worry about Falmouth as a venue is that it's so far away for us I'm not sure we'd ever get there!  However as I've already mentioned it's unlikely that we're going anywhere beyond the Forth this season.

Seeing this thread persuaded me to do a bit of hunting around the web for more Projection information, and I found a results list on the Royal Cornwall's site showing 2 762's,  Pink Gin and Miss Piggy, rating 0.965 and 0.966 repectively. Is there anybody out there involved with either of these boats who might know how they got these numbers? my 2006 TCF was 0.971 which I had thought was about average. 0.966 would certainly make my life easier!

Perhaps they have actually been weighed?

Those ratings do look pretty decent. Maybe they carry small kites?

I've got an endorsed rating and that was 0.973 for 2006
