Just finishing a headsail for a Ross 780, made from radial cut Cool Grey cruising laminate, the perfect thing for small yacht club racing. Great shape holding with long life.

Learning to wing foil is fun, but exhausting…SO much fun today, jumped on the 4.8 Avalon Wave sail and enjoyed a blast, old school style , off Avalon Bay. No waves, but flat water coastal fun! Thanks Bugs for rigging up for me 😁 Big smiles all round

Congratulations to Max Godfroy, the winner of the 2021 WA Moth State Championship, Max did it in style winning all 10 heats.
We are pleased to say that he did it using the Avalon Sails SM1 sail (which he had a hand in developing) and the complimenting Smart Boom made by Fastacraft, sure signs that this concept is the real deal.

08/11/2021

A bit more footage from testing.
Max has just jumped on the Circus and getting a feel for it, what is clear is how easy it is to move around the boat.
After comparing notes on the tune of the boat the rake will be increased a touch and the AoA of the foil increased, its using too much flap for lift at this point, I made the change and the boat was much improved the next day. Plus Max likes the tiller bungy much tighter so the boat is less twitchy steering.

Sending the Circus.

Getting older Moths up to Speed.
Here's the Flying Circus, my old boat from ten years ago that I got back part exchange when I sold the Pimp Mobile. The Pimp had been highly modified and we learnt a lot about what changes made a difference or not along the way. The circus has been set up as cleanly and simply as possible, Has been fitted with a new universal centrecase in the right spot so can be fitted with any new verticals and foils that may be developed in the future, has a Mach 2 2.4 rudder and small foil plus has the latest in out SM1 and SM2 rigs. At the moment I am using an old Prowler F33 foil that I have further modified and the boat has the BugsCam control system fitted.
I sent Max Godfroy out so I could have a look at the rig from off the boat, for him the footstraps where all wrong (he's twice my height) and we maxed out the vang (new splicing settling in), but all is working well and the boat shows great potential.

This is Jyrki Taiminen one of our customers from Finland having just rigged his new SM3 moth main with the new Smart Boom. All ready to go, his boat also features our BugsCam foil control system. The faith in the control system has led Jyrki to follow up with a rig.
Thanks for the photos Jyrki, all the best from Downunder.

Here we have a 9.0m XTR sail ready for testing as a Windfoil racesail.

21/04/2021

This is Max finishing one of the light tricky races of the 2021 Australian Moth Championship, it shows the ultra clean way the new SM1 rig sets up and in my opinion is the logical way ahead for the future, not a lot else makes sense.

Well the 2021 Australian Moth Championship is done and dusted, a big congratulations to Scott Babbage who sailed a very dominant series to claim the overall win. It was good that we had 4 west Aussies make the trip east With Will Boulden taking 7th overall and Max Godfroy 12th. Both gave the new Avalon rigs a good showing so I am very happy, thanks Guys.
Will be good to settle into some further testing on your return.
Cheers,
Bugs

Continuing on with the race sail development I dropped this off to my good friend Mike Layzell (aka Decrepit to some). It's a 5.5m XTR 4 cam sail, he'll be using this while GPS speed sailing. Looks like it could get fresh on Thursday, just hope it doesn't tempt him out there before he's ready, got a bit of a dicky hip/back, understandable at 75!
