I tried to post a topic about this a few mins ago, but I guess using the word 'grumph' in the topic thread made it an instant ban so it disappeared!!

Hi Nick

Congratulations she's looking very sweet there.  Any chance of some internal views?

Do you think this will be then end of the Vareo as a racing class then as it seems to solve the main critism of upwind leverage

Posted this in answer to the Grumph post but it vanished

Yep I'd been 'made aware' of that but told to keep schtum and anyway
2010?

I could be dead by then, I want something and I want it now.

Ever since I've started this lark I seem to have spent my time waiting for
this or that boat, I'll be buggered if I'm going to be jerked around again
by RS they took 4 months out of my life last time.

I missed a cheapo EPS in the classifieds while I was out in the states, so it
looks like back to buggering about with a Blaze, I nearly tripped and got a
Vario but it had gone by the time I phoned.

Something will turn up but right now it looks like its back to kite or
windsurfing for a bit or maybe seeing if that old MPS hasn't totally rotted
away..

I might also have a new female helm on temporary loan whilst her dad
has a knee operation I'll see how that works, as long as she doesn't make
me get in her 470 and learn all that old dinosaur stuff wrestling with
poles and wash bags.

We're getting a page sorted on our website, and some footage of sailing - give us a day or 2 and we'll have more detail available for viewing

Nick.

That looks sweet as - but please change the sail graphics before the final version! 

I reckon that hull might even measure as an NS14...

Looks to me like the love child of a 29er and a 300.

Also, I have to say, it looks pretty damned cool.  Don't like the sail graphics/panels, but the hull looks very nice.  Any idea of a likely PY?  If it goes like a 300 with extra kite power it's going to be pretty quick I'd guess!

Looks great. As an 'X' MX-Ray owner it's about time someone made a good version of the 'Ray' and this looks like it will be. I'd love to get a sail in one.
