3C Competitor info needed

Well I just realised my Cat is class compliant on length, being 22' 6.75m!

Can i run an XR2 in 2008 and how long can i run it for until the RYA/EPA emissions ban it?

I realise i have to have Hydroulic steering but is it essential as i have nearly new twin quicksilver cables (Double ride guide)

How much does

A..Licence cost (Non restraint)

B..Race entry

C..Any other costs apart from obvious fuel/running?

D..Hull/engine Homologation required?

E...Thinkin of Brass Monkey to get licence and do a shakedown with the old girl...Anyone else going?? Would Hydroulic steering be needed for basic brass??

F..Who/how many are racing in 2008?

G..Any Cats?

H..Are multihulls classed alongside Mono regarding RYA Nationals?

Regards

Cant tell you about specific Class III stuff but sure someone like scottyboy can fill in the gaps - what I can tell you is:-

Your cable steering is OK for 2008 according to the latest RYA Bulletin, however you will be urged to change to hydraulic if possible with it planned to become mandatory in 2009.

a) License if you have never raced before (even with an event license) is free for new people to the sport (according to the RYA newsletter)

b) Brass Monkey is 85 pounds - plus you will need to get an event license as you wont have time to go through the RYA application now

c) my main costs come from repairing the bloody trailer!, however some laminating work, prop repairs and engine...

d) For Class 3c you will need a measurement certificate issued by the RYA

e) Just do it - What I did last year and had the time of my life Entry's close on the 27th so contact the RMYC NOW ! Dont know about the XR2 situation, but certainly Brass Monkey will be OK as it is a BASIC

The rest somebody from 3c can fill you in, but Im sure there will be at least 3 or 4 basics this year and with a free license (if you have never raced before) so .... See you at the Brass Monkey! you won't regret it!

Thanks for the info, Should of mentioned i raced OCR for the past 5 years so just need to know the differences in cost.

In the nationals i came in order 3,2,1,2,2. Just fancie something different and with the OCR national calendar being so many races, I reckon Offshore won't be much dearer!

I done Brass Monkey in 2003,4,5,7 Think RMYC was closed in 2006?....in Phantom 19.

Ohh Forgot. What is minimum weight for Class 3C??

Sorry all/Sheila.. Must ave used the PB1 to Wipe my arse with!

Offshore Vs OCR

Also I found my past experiences in racing had reasonably closed horizons compared to the allowing of bigger engines and multihulls in offshore.

It may be dearer but right now it seems that you get more Smiles for your £ss

I will let you know as the season progresses and at least we can all still have a beer under our Awnings together with combined events.

I have new Awning too..Pleeeaase let me put it with yours

Cosmetics are right at the bottom of the priority list, though they are on list. Will likely stay red though since the undersides are painted, and will be hassle to repaint em.

Know wot ya mean! The underside of mine is painted and its for the same reason as you i havent painted mine. Finding somewhere to paint a boat properly especially whilst hanging is difficult. Mebbe play about with the topsides with vinyl?

Orange is cool! I would have gone for a slight metal flake or summin if i'd have painted it first time round thats all and probably a different coloured underside to break it up abit more. She looks luuurrvely this year! Still orange but lost the grey and added some special touches!

HEY Stu, hope your new boat/racing goes well for you buddy.
Shame you won't be in OCR this season, I will miss the closely fought battles. will catch up with you at some venue or other.

PS: the only horizon that was closed to you was winning the Championship when the Gringos turned up.
