I probably should have watched the introduction, was getting very frustrated until I realised if you scroll down each page they have a write up and tabs with what the class is ‘showing’

Not overwhelmed, but due credit for trying to produce something covid safe rather than just giving up.

Funny, I found the Streaker interesting, even watched the Tom Gillard talk.

Never realised Jack Holt was still designing boats in 1975, haven't seen one, looks good.

Wow that really surprises me . If someone says they haven’t seen a British moth or lightning 368 I would not be surprised, but not a streaker .
Do you sail on the salty stuff by any chance ?  Smile

Never seen a lightning 368 or a British moth, either.

Not many people have  LOL  

It’s one of the problems with sailing in the so many people never look any further than the normal suspects ( laser/solo/aero etc) when looking for a singlehander .

Enjoyed looking at Streakers, though they didn't go very old on their whizz through designs (no kit boats at all), or wood hulls of any sort.

Connect to Coaching was really good, nice triple act. Coaching going in a great direction for clubs, now.

Dougal and 70 years of boats...I even agreed with some of them!

Well, 505, Fireball, simply classics, would have won any decade. Split away somewhat after that! Laser, well head says yes, but heart, for the UK, says Topper. 80s, just ignore it, B14 very niche, Laser 2 a 70s boat. Even designed in the 70s, if it took a year to get over here. 90s, 49er, surely? Blew everything else away. 2000s, the Feva revitalised junior sailing. 2000s, Red Paddle 10'6" SUP.
Firefly 2324, Lightning 130, Puffin 229, Minisail 3446
