Australia's Bay to Bay Race 2010
Lloyd and Jabin Crisp's F-22 Stick Shift
Two F-22s took part in the 2010 Tin Can Bay to Hervey Bay Race in May, these being Lloyd and Jabin Crisp's 'Stick Shift' and David Mason's 'Fleetwing' (sailed by son Jack Mason). This was the first time two F-22s have been in the same race, and it looks like there could be four or five at the Bay to Bay next year!
There were 31 multihulls taking part this year, 14 of these being Farrier designs of various sorts, with one Corsair Sprint. Stick Shift was the 9th fastest overall, and only beaten by much larger racing multihulls, 8th place being an 8.54m (28') high performance cat, and less than 3 minutes ahead. 'Fleetwing' showed some excellent bursts of speed, coming in 12th fastest, and still needs some more tuning to be able to match 'Stick Shift', but they are getting there.
