Does it look like the Tiger has not been upgraded to stay competitive with the Formula 18 class?
Since it came out we have seen:
At least 3 different cuts of mains
At least 3 different jibs
Bridle wire moved lower
different layups to the hulls to add stiffness.
I do not know all of the changes, just these for sure. If you think that a Tiger is a Tiger is a Tiger...wake up. They are all Formula 18s though
I sailed my Tiger last night, Thursday, and broke my rudder crossbar...I am weeping. Initially I was mad then realized that, as much as I have sailed the boat, it did last a good 5 years. Better to break now than to break in the 75 mile Delta Ditch Run. You can see a simulation of that race here: http://vimeo.com/4532709
