The rules have been established for the FxOne, but is it possible for me to race with a more established fleet, like the 17s or tigers, and if I'm the only FxOne to show-up then I take the points? Is this a decision that each division chair decides?
I race with the H20's in my division, no points, no trophies.
Pick a fleet for the FxOne to race with until the numbers are there and see who shows up.
Maybe racing with the other boats would encourage more people to purchase a second boat or switch.
Hobie regatta's are strictly one design. I may have bent the rules a bit at my fleet's regatta this year but we had an "open class" , but it was Hobie only, done on PN's. There is alot of odd ball boats in my fleet. FXone, H18SX + square top + spin, H17 sport + square top + spin. We were expecting some folks with a Tiger to show as well.
I know you guys have tried to get things going, as I've read some of the old posts, so excuse my ignorance.
The best thing you can do is start sailing one yourself, in a couple of years sell it to someone locally and buy a new one. That's been my plan since I picked up my FXone last fall.
It really is a fricken' sweet boat.
