I’m an unashamed racer but always follow the cruising (bigger) part of the fleet with interest.
I sincerely hope that the cruising fraternity has been considered with the new boat. I think the thwart has been moved aft a bit unless I am mistaken, which may be good for the crew when racing (I simply beat mine about the head if he complains) but perhaps not so good for cruising/overnighting.
Many of us really look forward to any (hopefully positive) feedback about the new boat in a non racing mode.
It was a good sight watching everyone go past on saturday
