A couple of days ago we published some comments from Ivan Coryn on a new product development at Ovington, called the VX One. This is what Paul Taylor has to say
Looks like a modern asymmetric Flying 15 with all the trimmings, That would be attractive to a lot of people, self tacking jib, carbon spars, gnav, self draining, single string asymmetric kite.
Ovington would be competing against themselves, odd. Is there another agenda?
(Ed: it has always seemed to me that when people buy an FF they are partly doing it for the beautiful boat, but a large part is that you are buying into “FF fleet racing”. So not being complacent, but buyers who want proper racing are taking big risks with their money when they fancy a new model…Don’t you agree? Thinks,…. Laser 5000, Boss, Breeze, K6 etc – dare I say Elite? I just noticed that the crew weight range is 170-205KG, 2-3 people. So it’s a bit of a handful – and believe me, keeping a 3 person boat staffed up is just a pain. I wonder if the weight range statement should read “2 Americans, or 3 Europeans” – :-))))) They grow ’em large over there…)
