Don't know about growth in the FastSail classes Matt, bit early to say.

I do know that there will be a lot more visibilty for these classes and the opportunty for people to have a go in each one, and meet like minded sailors.

More importantly, it will allow unfounded perceptions and prejudices to be addressed.  For instance, if you think FD's are big complicated lumps of string and sails.. well come along and try one.  Osprey..what's that....come and have a look and try one.  5o5....psycho dinghy..absolutely right...but come along and try one anyway...Javelin...Hornet ...Fireball etcetcetc. 

These classes are all fun to sail and provide a very cost effective means of getting a performance dinghy that you probably WONT grow out of.

I'm sure there's lots more to come from the FastSail camp.

Take your point about the Contender though.  Lovely boat.
