So what do we think? The Nacra 17 to represent the cat sailing World on the biggest stage.

Personally, I wish Nacra the best of luck on behalf of the Tornado Class.

How many have been built?

How many will be built?

How long will it take to build sufficient to supply the world?

How many will take part?

Congratulations to NACRA on selection of their 17 to be the Olympic catamaran in 2016. I am really pleased it was chosen and hope it will help lead to a recovery of cat sailing in the UK.

2 or 3

How many will be built?

ISAF had minimum requirements and arranged a fixed cost for 100 boats.

How long will it take to build sufficient to supply the world?

Not sure but they have to get them out quick. I hear that the RYA ordered 6 over the weekend.

How many will take part?

Guess this depends in MNAs budgets, the expense of a campaign and sponsorship.

Looks like a good choice to me.

I hope the Tornado can become a class where people now go for top rate non Olympic competition - like the 505 in the dinghy world.
