Quite interesting to see the stands growing by the day! Can also play the guess the stand game!

From Camera 1, that's clearly Laser close to the camera.

From Camera 2, that would appear to be the Topper stand right under the camera- though it may well be a sailing school that just happens to have decided to park Toppers and a Magno on their stand. My (three time) former employers are rather obvious, and that would appear to be Sunsail to their right.

Now, grabbing my copy of Y&Y, I'm right about it being Topper. But as for the others visible, well, I'm not autisitic enough to look them up armed with a map that has only reference numbers, and a paper list that is in alphabetical order. The website is no help.

Spent several minutes of head scratching trying to identify one of the boats on the Laser stand......however I think that I might have worked it out, the one with the blue stripes on the hull, it might be a sunfish ? (from the Vanguard US range)

Hmm, the sails on the Topper Topaz 14CX are HORRIBLY coloured. Some sort of Old Skool Hobie thing going on there. And that'll be the RS stand opposite the Laser one.

i agree. that 14CX looks disgusting. it would be an embarassment sailing it with those on there.

i can see the k6 there on the RS stand but whats the other boat right on the left with the clear sails does anyone know?

yea, there is k6, 200, 500, vareo, feva behind vario

cant help but notice there are is no 300 or 700 on the rs stand. might still come yet though.

do you think they sell these boats on cheap after the show? or do they keep them as display/demo boats?

They'll be the demo boats .... They have probably never actually been sailed!

sounds like they could be a bit of a deal when they sell them on. saying that, for one designs they wouldnt need to replace them anyway.

Just seen the other cameras. There is now an outside camera. Good to see a LIVE wind shot.

The Sunsail camera shows the stand my friend will be working!
