I am definately in again for next year, and I will have my Cat C-12 ready to go again in 3C.

2010 could be a great year with the recession behind us, and hopefully a growing fleet, and from what I understand, and really good calender of races.

Im not sure about that, i just took a new tenant on for one of my properties yesterday and had to lower the rent!!

The whole purpose of becoming a Landlord was for other people to pay towards my boating expenses, not for me to subsidise their cost of living!

Pierre Paul, well done on your win in Italy. We would have liked to come over and compete but family committments prevented it. Do you know which venue the 2010 Worlds will be held at?
Regards,
Ian.

ian, during the second race at the start we are 10th post, at this moment the sea go slowly more rough. at the 7th laps we are 4th and we are the most quick ten seconds by laps than the first ,marcus.
But there is a problem, we are too young and too quick at one buoy more difficult. We make a mistake and the bill is under water.
This is the race.
But we are very happy because win a world championship race is very very good.

Adam, actually we can said one things :
Nobody can said monohull is the better or multihull is better.
The most important is the pleasure.
One day for one and one day for the other.
The most important it is he always has to have there both types of boats during the races, you should not make as it 6litres with only multihull, this is stupid.
About the motors mercury whit the new 200xs stay the leader.
