Hi BxAustralia, Sorry I missed your reply till now. 0.90 sounds pretty fair to me. That would put me about where I'm sailing on a good day, which isnot toofar behind the nacra 4.5s which are at 0.88. I used to beat one of them but the lady who sails it has got better and now leaves me in her wake. I'll have to have a wee chat to our handicapper!! The Getaway that was for sale is mine but I've decided to keep it for now cos a friend at the club has bought another one. Its nice to have some direct competition instead of being left behind by all the nacras and H16s etc. The Getaway is certainly a good boat and my wife and I really enjoy racing in enviable comfort. Last time out the safety boat pulled alongside and asked for 2 Lattes to go!
Perhaps we'll have the opportunity to sail together one day, meanwhile keep the fast buggers honest and enjoy the comfort.
PS: are you aware of the Aus Hobie forum;
also catsailor.net has a good one;
