2018 F18 Worlds Sarasota: 2 Windrush Edge available for charter


Photos: 2018 Europeans by Marc Gonzalez Alomá - Windrush Edge built by Brett Burvill have proven to be super competitive. Not only in Australia, with several Nats behind, but also this year at the 2018 Europeans, where Brett & Max Putnam finished in 2nd place winning some races and contending for the title.

There will be two of the weapons along Next gen DS sails ready to sail at Sarasota. Those interested in charter or buying them contact Brett directly at brett@windrushyachts.com.au

Boats pics and info sent by Brett Burvill : "Hi Martin, we still have 2 of the brand new Windrush Edge's available for charter in Sarasota. We plan to have them there Monday before the event and assembled ready to go on Tuesday.

The boats are complete with Next Gen sails as we used at the F18 Europeans and Eurocat earlier this year.  We are also looking to sell these boats on after the event so a good chance for competitors to look to take home a new boat. Windrush is prepared to sell these boats prior to the event or post charter, either way a good deal is available on these great boats. "

New Foiling D35 Prototype Foils tested

Some months ago we reported that the D35 Class was planning a new foiling platform for the future. Now the news are becoming real with this Unofficial fb video  published by Jan Eckert, (check it below, if you cannot watch it or not loading here is the direct fb link) a D35 helm who races the D35 Trophy with his team Django. Jan reports being the "TF35" Prototype, this cat featured in the video is actually an Easy to Fly platform fitted with the new T Foils developed by a known group of designers.
Foils are 3pt conf running system, and all 4 foils are T Foil types, vertical section has an inverted curved and its features flaps and seemingly full electronic flight control system.

The info I have that this setup will surpass any current multihull foil conf, and they are targeting calm winds racing too, as D35 Regattas are mostly held in light winds. Early lift off is targeted along matching current D35 floating performance in light winds, which will be a tough task to achieve, as the D35 is simply the unbeaten beast in those conditions.

Foiling looks pretty stable in this teaser, but remember the foils will need to have an efficient drag component in calm weather racing.
