I think I shall have to give it a go :-)) :-))
The guys involved in the development have very
good CVs.
I was going to build an RG65 for the summer to get
Grandson interested in the rag and stick element
but this is sounding ok (he will like the sail graphics <:()

Hi Mark,
I was talking about Mike and John although I'm sure we could have met in the racing scene, I think Mike at CMYachts has also ordered a batch I have 4 members in my club with pre orders. Our club is already talking about having a Wednesday evening summer series meeting sailing RG65's so I'm interested in an ICE with John's sails.

My understanding is that the model is designed to comply with the RG65 rules and John and Mike are looking at a prize for the first place Dragon Force boat in standard trim at open events for the RG65 and there are not any separate rules as the boat was designed within the RG65 international rules, and as such the sails can be replaced with panelled sails from most sailmakers

with regards to GBR 28's comments, only single panelled sails will be allowed under the "One Design Rules".
 
there will also be a complete range of spares including 2 smaller rigs and a shorter fin.
 
all this was discussed at the weekend with joysway in Germany and has yet to be finalised
 
regards
