Thanks Ian for taking time to answer.... and please continue to design the best boats
you can! My F-27 is now 16 years old, it crossed the Atlantic from California to France
on a flat-rack 6 years ago, and it is in perfect condition. The folding system works like
the very first day.
I am attaching a picture of my boat during a race last year going round-trip from the French
Riviera (Antibes) to the Corsica island (Calvi). One way is 92 nm, so this is off-shore sailing.
We finished 6th last year (142 boats), and a F25C finished 2nd behind the former Maxi "Matarese".
This is a "classic" race to which I participate every year.
