I don't think the B14 guys will let you get away with calling it dead.  In fact I think it is in revival.  Similarly I think theres something left in the ISO too.  I don't think a class is dead just becuase there aren't many new ones.  I know they went to Garda this year.

you can get a topper to plane in a lot less than 25 knots waverider- maybe it flt 25 knots cos u get a good sensation of speed being so low in the water.

Didn't the RS800 start life as a 2 man single trapeze,
and then they offered the double wire option...

They're bound to have something under development, perhaps its the 900?  What could it be: a one design 3 man skiff, or a single trapeze, 2 man boat?  One day of course there will be something faster than a 49er, is it arriving already?

I've not been keeping up with this thread, the B14 class is most definately not dead!  A lot of boats are changing hands at the moment bringing a lot of new people into the class.  The new carbon mast should be class legal by the time this year's season kicks off properly, and if you need another reason to join the B14 fleet the next worlds are in Jan 2006 on Sydney harbour, the spiritual home of skiffs!! 

As for  what they feel like at speed, they are amazing, you are closer to the water with the wings.  And also because you hike rather than trapeeze boat speed is entirely dependent on how hard you work.  The more you put in, the more you get out, its a really rewarding way to sail, keeps you fit too! 

Sailor Girl, did you do the nationals, trying to think if I saw you there.
