400's


Asymmetric News

For 2008, the Fast Asymmetric Fleet will have their own start. This fleet will consist of the faster asymmetric boats that use the apparent wind when sailing down-wind, like:
  • RS 400
  • RS 200
  • RS Vareo
  • RS 500
  • Laser Vortex
  • Laser 2000
  • Musto Skiff
  • 405
See Boats at the club for more details of some of these classes.
As you can see, this gives a complete mix of singlehanders and double handers, two or three sails, with and without trapezes, all with asymmetric spinnakers. This provides for exciting racing at all times with the emphasis placed on tatical decisions.
The fleet will be the first start of the sequence on a Sunday, making use of what in the past has been the RS400 start time and class flag.
If you would like to get involved in racing, have some information or want some advice, and you have an asymmetric boat with a PY of 1100 or less, then please hunt me down on the fore-shore or in the bar: I sail an RS Vareo, number 294, "Single Measure".email=asymmetric@burghfieldsailing.org]Chris Jordan
