Delivery before the nationals in September, thats the promise I got.  So yes, a long wait for my new toy, but still in time for the important event.  Puts the pressure on you guys to get a head start on me, would be a real shame if you couldnt beat me after all the extra practice you'll have had! Pressure's on guys!

Just to put the thread fully back on track,

Name: David Thomas

Club: Warsash, or Plymouth Uni during term time

Previous Classes: Oppies, Lasers (all rigs), RS700, plenty of keelboats, team racing mainly in fireflys

Rig: The big one!

Height and weight: 6 foot 2 and 80kg

Expectations: More comfortable than laser, more suitable for restricted waters such as the river at warsash, well rounded peformance in all winds. Oh and of course the usual RS Social scene.

I'd have said you've the demographically more or less ideal weight for a MUSTO SKIFF, especially after an RS700. What motivated you to want an RS100? Ok read the explanation, sorry

Its not just restricted waters that have put me off, i have pretty much decided that skiff sailing isnt for me. I am more into tactical racing than out and out speed. I also quite like being able to stay dry when learning to sail a boat, particularly in England! Add to that the fact that I would be looking at a second hand musto rather than a new one, I just quite like the idea of a new boat with no need for fiddly and expensive jobs to do all the time.

The 100 just seems to have a lot more going for it than a musto in terms of sailable life too.  Without a forestay i expect the kites to last twice as long.  Foils should last longer especially with river sailing.  At 18 years of age a hiking boat isnt particularly tiring, especially after years of laser sailing. In fact the 100 will be comparatively easy on the legs as I wont have to hike flat like in the laser.  The mast is also able to fit inside the cover so no more varnishing that every couple of years.  Not an expensive job but it all adds up!

Is this allowed - all these studenty types getting new boats ? I am sure I read
in the promotional small print that at least for the first three years (due to
lack of any 2nd hand boats at affordable prices) there would definately be
no students (far too much free time to practice) and pretty much the age
demographic would be 50+ . At 48 this really appealed to me !!

Whats gone wrong ?!

Update - actually just noted that laser193713 is the one now just posted his
full details. Ok one token student is allowed - but only 1 !

Now calm down chris, you shouldn't be getting so excited at your age. Do you want a nice cup of tea and biscuit?
