Busy Season

The end of our Southern summer season is approaching so we have been making best use of each long warm day whenever the breeze has been good.Lots of time on the water for Paradox, putting the theories to the test and giving many interested parties the opportunity to experience A Cat sailing on stable foils.

In just a few short weeks we will be back in the office so the technical content many of you tune in for should start flowing again.

In the factory we have selected the final contractors who are setting up for building a Version 2 production prototype that, after testing against Version 1, will be followed by customer boats.
Sooner than we had expected thanks to a few prospective early adopters who have believed in us and encouraged us, sharing the passion that drives us to do what we do.

Build slot number four is the next available. A few slots may still be available for delivery at the AUS Nationals. Then the lead-up to the Worlds will begin.

Now that the basics are in place, the slower process of tuning for competition begins. As with any new boat, there is a learning process discovering the quirks, optimising the systems and sniffing out the small hidden weaknesses that only pop up during the heat of battle.
Everything we are learning is informing the user manual that will come with every boat.

Interesting times indeed!
