Starboard kite drop

I sail on a loch in Scotland and the club courses usually weave their way across the loch and inevitably there will be a need to drop the kite on starboard. So far I've failed pretty miserably at doing this with the kite plummeting like a brick into the water and stopping the boat dead. Does anybody...

AC tuning guide

Does anybody have a basic tuning guide for a Razorback AC or any advice they can give? I've bought AC282 and while I think it's been set up by Rob for rake and rig tension I'm interested in having a guide to hand on the other stuff across the wind ranges like self tacking jib car position, jib sheet...

Beautifull cold moulded IC

K184 Tony Miles built, cold moulded beauty. Book matched decks and just gorgeous to look at. It went in the garage a couple of years ago with the great intention of getting re varnished but it never happened and as its unlikely I'll get the time to finish her it's time to sell her I someone who can....

Tacking - What is the best technique?

I’m getting to grips again with the IC and while I have no issues in getting round the course dry and beginning to develop the ‘feel’ of the boat my tacking is at best ‘industrial’ – always has been. What is the best technique for tacking in moderate conditions? I accept that once the breeze is up t...

Advice Wanted

I’ve just bought GBR 184 at the weekend and have amazed myself slightly in that I managed to sail her on Sunday fairly successfully in a reasonable bit of breeze. I was expecting that since it is about 11 years since I last sailed a canoe I was going to be doing a lot of swimming, but it seems it re...

Re: AC / IC wanted

Thanks everyone who read this, but I'm going to have to delay buying an AC [house extension costs just got bigger!]
Hopefully in a few months.....

Hi I'm considering getting another IC again. I had a Piranha a long time ago and have always had a soft spot for ICs. Realistically, how much weight can an IC carry competitevely? I'm currentlly 110kgs but aiming for 100kgs shortly. Is that too much weight to be competitive? Now all i need to do is ...
