Hi Guys,
Just a quick one, I have been looking through this thread but cannot find what I am looking for. I would like to know the rig tensions for the side stays, outers and inners. I have the black loos gauge pro. It was extremely windy (the most we have been out in yet) when we sailed this weekend and our leeward outer stay was loose. Not sure that is meant to happen.
Thx Darren

There is the potential for a lot more! Our fastest recorded speed of last season was 17.2knots. 12+ is normal in 20 knots of breeze with the kite up. Have fun!

Look at the IRC thing as we do with the Quarter Tonners. This year there was 32 boats in Cowes with IRC from 0.897 to 0.915 and the racing was very close and almost One Design. In one race there was 58 seconds between the boats finishing 5th to 20th on the water. There was also 4 dead heats on corrected. To go the full one design route would put some people off. I had an Sb for 3 years and the top boats ALL went off piste to make themselves faster..
I am very keen to have a go in one of these boats.

Sounds more like a box rule sailing short courses. P762 is awsum boat and if you come to Jersey, you are more than welcome to come and play, just let me know. P762 are just hated by IRC and unfortunately even most small club systems are based around this even though they pretend they are not. But when the breeze is on they really come into their own. Working on my IRC now, by shortening spi pole and getting boat re-weighed. Next will be the sail plan which I have a sail maker looking into. Have painted bottom with Durepox also which seems to be a good thing.

Glad I am not the only one to notice how much the IRC hates small, fast, and cheap boats like the Projection 762.
On the basis that most of the racing done these days is round the cans in some form or another and
Fewer people want to cart around a boat full of useless furniture they never use let alone the fact that production line builders build such shoddy interiors anyway these days is it not about time that The RORC gave the rating office a kick up the pants and overhauled the rule with a bit more emphasis on the well designed racing boats and less emphasis on the 4ksbs that they seem to love. 
If you have multi million pound budgets you can buy a TP 52 that planes virtually up wind and win everything in sight.
If you scaled such a design down to say 24 to 28 ft and it cost say about 5 k less than a a J 88  on the water, the IRC would have apoplexy and rate it to hell and back.....

Never enough time for sailing

Hello to all the Projectionist :)

we recently done the acquisition of the P762 'Sensation' and we are doing some small refit on her.
the main question is about the sail area and I would like your point of view if we replace the genoa by a jib.
the idea is to win some millieme in our IRC rating and also change the downwind configuration by a asymetric kite on a bowpsrit (STL = 3,20 m).

Do you think it make sense to go to this way or we have to stay with the overlapp genoa ?

thanks for your lights ;)

Philou

You have to love this. Line honours on a P762 and next boat (First 44.7) 12 min behind across the line. http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/news/178529/British-Airways-Round-Jersey-Race
