I'm right behind you, Keith... love the look of the H2... as Porky said, a sensible boat for us older gentlemen..  I sincerely hope it catches on...

Just make a smaller one, H3 perhaps, for those of us who haven't eaten so many pies....

Nutter, H3 is already in gestation, but may not take the form you indicate.
Chris Gould (28 years old and weighing in at 67kg), managed the H2 very capably last week in quite strong winds.

Will be interesting how the optimum weight works out, the light hull and comparatively wide beam may not put all of the emphasis on pork power

Keith... I was hoping the H3 would be N12 like, with a bit more form stability, and 75 odd square feet of sail.. But with all the design innovations of the H2...

I've got 22 years on Chris Gould.. I can't hike like I used to!

Nutter, I have 20 years on you and I weigh 80kg. I will be sailing my H2 this year (if I live that long!).

Genetics says I'll be 65kg until the day I die.... Not my fault, but it puts me out of  the weight range of too many boats....

At that weight I'd have thought you probably have more choice than most.It's the bigger guys 85kg and over who have a limited choice.

I'm over weight at 70 kilos, and agree there are loads of boats for us to choose from, but the lack of leverage means they are either quite slow or really hard to sail. I'm happy with slow, mostly.

There seems to be reasonable choice at 65 kg .....  Solution, Europe, Streaker, B.Moth, Lightning etc for a start ... even a Radial at a pinch inland.

And my own bias (of course)  ..... A Blaze with the 'Fire' rig on it.  Well you need a decent amount of leverage and they really have their moments as well.  Fine in the light stuff if you are the right weight and a flyer in the medium and strong wind stuff.


The ones below are at Burghfield - come along and have a look / go.
