I am currently mending my sloop. just before seasons end i had a rather unfortunate encounter with some motorized water bikes and in the mist of things left the situation with a large hole in my stern. needless to say I was a little chapped.

Its only a proposal at this stage. Basically the proposal is to reduce the min weight a bit and to return the IC to the box rule that was used before 1970 something when they changed to one design hulls.

Since the current canoe shape was designed there have been changes in what the typical dinghy looks like - generally finer bows and the waterplane further back, and the smart money is that a new Canoe shape wouild reflect that.

Jim, What is the point of that? Surely a 'proper' canoe will never look at all like a 'typical dinghy' !

I'm involved in two projects this year which are both linked.

The 1st is a hydrofoiling Stealth F16. John has kindly built us a one-off F16 with daggerboard slots moved further forward to get better balance when up on the foils. The hydrofoils are now complete with hyraulic MTB cables linking the wands to the foils, we are however still working on the rudders and rudder stocks. The aim is to try and investigate the potential performance benfits of foils on cats, with a view to putting them on a C-class. The problem is project 2 is taking priority.

Project 2. is a new wing for the C-class cat Invictus. Following our poor showing at the C-class champs in 2004 we have repaired the hulls, and work is well underway on a Cogito style wing, with slotted flap. If all goes well we will be chucking it on the water in time for some of the big cat events in the summer, or at worst Grafham Cat Grand Prix in October !
