Boy could I have some fun with that one and the one I already own!
We could do some serious match racing. I saw a trailer once that was set up to hold two, side by side, which would be perfect.

Is this a Glass boat??? I've been trying to fine building plans for one of these, to be build of wood/glass/epoxy, anyone know where they could be found. I understand they do build they in Europe as home built to class standards. Thanks rw.
As far as I know there is a one design but most people sail Peter Norlin boats.

Actually, the first boat could not sail in the class, as the rule specifies that lower chords on the keel must be shorter than the upper chords. The mast also looks heavy for the design, but that may be an illusion.
Google search, or go to the ISAF web site and look for the 2.4metre class...
