Re: Brushless winch

Hi Rob Hope you stick with the winch making ! I've currently got 6 RMG winches of various ages (New up to 10 years old) and have never had any problems whatsoever. In Euro terms the prices have increased but that has been due to the AUD/Euro fx rate which is beyond your control. My boats over the ye...

Re: New to IOM

Hi Brian We sail out of Howth on weekends from October to May. We used to race exclusively on Sunday mornings but are now being more flexible with an aim to rebuild the fleet numbers. I'm guessing you're on Strangfrod Lough ? Do you have many boats sailing ? Our class website is www.iomireland.org ;...

Re: New to IOM

Hi Brian Welcome to the IOM. There isn't a huge difference in tuning between the different designs so probably best to see what the others are doing in your club. If you've got Stealth specific questions, you're probably best advised to ask Trev Bamforth who designed it. http://stealthsails.webs.com...

Re: IOMICA Website--What Happened?

The other thing to consider is that each country has its own forum - the Italian and French ones in particular are very active, with lots of good information.

I've finally got a new pc so am back online, so apologies for the delay getting back to you.

Thanks to you and all your team for organising a great event; it was clear that a huge amount of work was put into it.

Brad Gibson

I see Brad Gibson has his new UK based website up and running. His address is:

http://freespace.virgin.net/bgrc.yachting/

I won't pretend not to be biased, as I have two of his Disco design.

Anyone who has seen his work can't fail to be impressed by its quality.

Had a quick look at the footage. Looks like the familiar problem of a far away downwind mark. Often from the skippers' vantage point the boats blanket one another and it is almost impossible to see individual boats. However there's no excuse for piling in if the view is better. Think you'd need to k...

A few comments/queries in relation to the proposed rule changes. I refer to the paragraph numbers in the PDF document for ease of reference. Under 3.6 - What is the purpose of banning Texalium hulls from future Continential and WC events after 2006 ? If the boats are IOMs for the purpose of non WC/c...
