Final Review 10th December
We were kindly joined for our final review by Reggie Goodbody, John Parker and Geoff Brouder.
Four group designs were presented and discussed, as this is a blog, the earlier parts of the brief and precedents are quite a few posts back, here is the link to the brief.
Thanks to all those who assisted with the module this semester.
A wooden catamaran for a mixed crew, fast, wet, modular and transportable. A box rule class for home builders, crew 2-3.
A narrow, long arrow of a boat, modest sail area but low drag. Composite construction for light weight. A racing boat with different colour jibs for clarity of racing. The distinctive winged hull form and high aspect rig are intended to be particularly associated as a new class suitable for the inland waterways.
Lough Derg Adventurer
The adventurer is a boat suitable for racing and cruising, raid style racing and supporting a few days of self-sufficiency. Sociable sailing and rafting-up were intended from the outset as well as comfortable crew positions for sailing and sleeping.
The Mayfly is a fast shallow skimming dish for young people and light winds. To be raced with two crew but large enough for three. Cedar strip.
