Re: More lost classes??

A 5000 appeared as bass week last year, only went out once and didn't join in we aspired after it as another #threemeninaboat machine and tried to blag a go. the lads said it was quite tame, could take 3 and did over 15kts but so does an osprey!!

Catamarans

We discussed at Roadford the desiarability of catamarans

although not as desirable as the free Pegasus on dinghy bits I found a hobie 14 and a hobie 16 and a pair of hawke Surfcats on facebook all in south west area. all cheap. possibly none desirable either!
