I guess this would be one for David Henshall I guess, as it pretty much marks the end of widespread dinghy development in Germany:

I've pictures and comments from people who sailed this at Torbole and...well, the best one could say was tht this represents and interesting cul-de-sac. But - as we all know, when taking an exam (and what is a set of Trials OTHER than an on-water exam) surely the first rule has to be to 'answer the question'.

Mach 2 did answer questions, a number of them, but they were not the questions being set by ISAF!

I wonder if it could serve as a "light-air-weapon" at least?

It reminds me of the Dutch Hornet Sailors putting racks and twin trapezes on their boats to follow the "Skiff fashion" in the early  2000 years...
