IYRU "D" 500 sq ft no other restrictions. The original OSTAR.
Singlehanded across the Atlantic. First to finish
Suits me, although let's make it a bit cheaper at 400 sq'. OSTAR is an
expensive race (more safety gear, longer distance), Transpac is a much
easier, faster and more pleasant ride and is in 2008, not 2009.
So it doesn't get bogged down in discussion and vested interest, and to see
if we can actually get something happening, I will put up a trophy for the
first boat built to the "400 sq' sail area, no other restrictions" to finish
the Solo Transpac (San Francisco - Hawaii) in June 2008. Maybe a cash
prize as well if there is any left over in the budget and the committee
Dave, put the popcorn down and start sewing a kite.
Intriguing enough, Bill?
Sorry to end your retirement, Len. ;-)
Jesse, I can't speak for the others, but my boat will be for sale for
$30,000 at the end of the race.
Brian, a low cost opportunity to prove the mast aft rig really is the way to
Dan, maybe a sloop?
