  1. Hi yes I am interested, I have a brand new 285 ES1 in its box been tested in one of my six metres, but am interested in having a spare 380 for my A class yachts, send me a PM or phone me, my number is in the yearbook
  2. Thanks for the info people, not sure why this has come up again after 5 years, now we need to make sure all our 6 metre owners are getting the COG communications if they want to, so if you are not getting the COg emails please let me know .
  3. that was painful watching and day 2 was just as bad, come on Ineos
  4. Patriot didnt look sorted to me , they looked very wary of the boat and were undercanvassed as well, not saying I wouldnt feel the same but after todays performance we need to watch Luna Rossa she looked great today
  5. got to agree with you about Shirley Robertson, she should be in the booth for at least half the time, her commentary yesterday was great and her on the water commentary is great
  6. I am agreeably suprised by the quality of the you tube presentation, never thought a foiler lowriding could produce excitement, also after the pre christmas racing Brittannia is finally racing, well done to the team who must have rebuilt the boat
  7. Hi All, I am just checking to see if all of the six metre owners in the UK have been receiving the emails via Mailchimp from the COG via myself, if you want to receive these emails( a few a year) and you are not at present receiving them please contact me directly with contact details (email and Telephone if possible) club yacht design and number, if you only have some details and not a yacht as yet please let me know and I will contact you directly. Hopefully we will be out on the water and racing sometime this year, keep cheerful (not easy) keep well (even harder) and see you all soon.

    FR Cerberus

    Hi Vinnie, Geoffs Cerberus goes very well
  9. I believe Ray Baker will mould you a Rennaisance hull, also there is someone down in Plymouth who has moulded a Rococo hull recently, contact John Kiff at the Dartmoor club
  10. I use liner gloves with Hand warmers when it's really cold, try Rohan
  11. I totally agree with Mark, the DF yachts are good yachts for one Design racing good to get people into the sport and apart from that they sail nicely, if we start down the comparison route then you need to consider what you are getting for your money
  12. The use of water with altered surface tension as standard practice when I worked in the sign industry and using the standard deck patch material one drop of fairy liquid in a spray bottle is about right.. If you are using the modern vinyl that they use for wrapping hen keep Dr and use a heat gun.
  13. Thanks for the clarification Darin ,or for bringing the relevant advice to our attention

    I sailed Geoff Raygadas Cerberus on its first outing ad was particularly impressed on how well she went to windard

    I am certainly not one to move you away from the six metre for obvious reasons, in your situation I would go for a Rococo, easier to build than a Romanza and a popular and good all round design, I personally prefer the Ravenna but pundits do tend to prefer the Rococo
