Re: Advice on bulding new rules IC needed

John, If it is not too late to reply…. On USA-244 I have about 100mm of rocker at the daggerboard exit. Nethercotts have about 100 mm as well, and I had thought that keeping the rocker about the same with the narrower hull would be about right. Looking forward to the next hull, I would keep the rock...

Re: US East Coast Mid Winter's

The US Midwinters wrapped up this Sunday after three days of challenging short course racing with a variety of wind strengths. Regardless of the wind strength, the shifts and puffs kept everyone on their toes. Everyone had a race where they shined, and it was proved on more than one occasion that a ...

Re: US Website

Christian & Steve,

I will follow up on this end. Your offers sound attractive, but I am not familiar with the software that you are describing.

Re: Designing DC's

Just to add another data point to the mix: Mayhem has about 100 mm of rocker at the daggerboard, and carries a little spring all the way aft to the stern. The design displacement of 155 kg is generous, and allowed for my gross tonnage (wet) + a little fluff in case the boat came out heavy. As New Ru...

Re: US Website

Steve, The US Web Page has fallen on hard times. Our gallery software was corupted, and the new gallery software that we installed is not compatible with the galleries that we have. I have many skills, but web design is not on that list. Karl W. has puut in a significant amount of time and effort in...

Re: Rigs

In responce to a similar question posted on Sailing Anarch by Alan P.I Posted the following: In general here in the states the IC's built to the new rule are using shorter spreaders, swept aft such that the shroud is not deflected forward by the spreader tip. The hounds are at or near the max forest...

Re: More World Championships

All, For me personally, I would support keeping the world's every 3 years. In addition to the considerable cost, any World Championships in Europe is a year that I will not be able to sail my boat as it will be in transit for most of the sailing season. North American & Southern Hemisphere events ha...

IC Communities

If this site is to be truly the International site: I suggest that we include forums for Sweden & Germany. While language may be a barrier, I think that the class would be well served if the Swedes & Germans had a place to post what is going on in those countries. With improved communication, perhap...

Re: Yardstick Numbers for new Design IC

In the interest of providing more data, I have the tomes from the High Performance Dignhy Open in Rye NY earlier this month. We shared a start with Fireballs a I14 & Contenders, but the results were split as the IC's qualified for class racing. I do not know where to send the information.
