Re: Gooseneck & Kicker Arrangements

Thanks Jim & Alistair, My set up on Sunshine (as arranged by Colin Brown) was similar to Dragonfly but with adjustable lowers that went up to about half way between the gooseneck and spreaders. This gave good mid mast control and with the ability to chock the mast at the partners to induce more pre-...

Gooseneck & Kicker Arrangements

Dear All, I'm drawing a new boat and so have a number of decisions to make. From looking at plenty of existing competitive designs, I've noticed quite a variety of arrangements with the longitudinal offset of the goose neck (from mast position) and fixed kicker end. To go with this, there are also a...

Re: Training & One Day Open at Northampton Sailing Club

Wedding avoidance tactics now in force - 'Sunshine' is on driveway and ready to roll bright and early on Saturday morning! As I have new sails, will there be any suitably qualified and equipped bods about over the weekend to do the measuring bit? I'm keen to get this done before getting to Stone. Ex...

Re: ASYMMETRIC CANOES

Hi Steve & the AC Collective,

I'm planning on getting to Northampton, Stone (4 day main event), Castle Cove, Mengeham Rythe & Oxford and then if my arms haven't come off (!) after a busy September, Plymouth for the final fling as well. I can't get to Berlin sadly.

Re: Training & One Day Open at Northampton Sailing Club

Thanks Mike, this looks good.

Is camping possible at Northampton SC?
If not, can you recommend a nearby campsite that takes tents.
Thanks,

Scott.

Re: Promotion of class (Ladies / Youths)

This discussion about weight and strength is interesting, even if it is piggybacked onto the important topic of promoting the class to a wider audience. I was attracted to the Canoe because of the freedoms to configure a boat to suit ones weight and physical strength rather than being stuck with wha...

Re: Oxford Open Evening 7 th October.

Regrettably, due to ill health I will no longer be traveling to Oxford.
No issues with Saturday evening as I haven't booked in.
Enjoy yourselves and have a swim for me.

best regards,
