    Default International 10 Sq. m. Sailing Canoe

    Anyone sail these? I used to race a wood one a long time ago at the internationals. Best finish was a sixth out of twenty six. That's with a capsized or two or three. Sweet - basically a surf board with cat rig, sliding seat and spinnaker. Wet ride though when the wind picks up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvJBtMilmkI

    Yes an old wooden one then a carbon composite, fantastic sail. The are the great grandchildren of sailing canoes from the 1850s. They are far more a canoe than a surfboard. They are now available in 3 variants
    The one design as pictured above
    Asymmetric - the one design but with a big asymmetric
    Development - lighter, narrower and a development boat

    Ha! I sailed them in the 80's so these new developments? Whoa - narrower, shorter, and a great bow design (upside down hull?) for those nasty bow waves that tumble you? Oh, they may sail like a canoe, but when they flip they don't fill up with water. I was always surprised at how quickly you could get them going again. Thx.

    There are many different designs of the development canoe. They not only come up completely dry but the board is low in the water so righting simple, add a carbon mast and you are back sailing in no time. Perhaps this is one of the reasons people are still competitively sailing them over 70 years old.

    Don’t like spending too long on Sailing Anarchy, but an interesting thread on DC

    Yea, Steve Clark. I went to school with him at Cornell. He rowed on the crew, as did I. He was also into bikes. His legs were massive, a necessity when you row. He was the one that let me sail his early clunkers. Wood mostly. They leaked like a sieve. On Lake Cayuga to start, then on to International fun. They still leaked, but not as much. He was off to the races by that point. Steve? Yea.

    Sixth in the Internationals (worlds?) is pretty damn good! I got third in the Aussie nationals the only time I tried it, but even then the boat was about 40 years old with ancient dacron sails. She was competitive in flat water but dropped out the back dramatically when there was chop. She's been sitting in the shed for years, waiting for a new sliding seat.

    Mine was built with help from Ben Lexcen and renovated by a 14 Footer world champ years ago. She's made from the legendary Australian cedar but to my shame I let her get weatherbeaten.

    I've had a go of 20th Century Hollow Log, the radical cat-rigged new rules boat. Now THAT is a boat that makes a Moth or Nethercott look like a Laser, in terms of stability.

    Yea, Worlds a long time ago when it wasn't what it is now. We scabbed a bit of a beach, and raced, but everyone came from all countries, as we all do, to race those magnificent boats. I think Steve lent them all his boats as long as they were willing to race, as well as those that brought their own. Different time I guess. Now a Moth? That is another story. Might want to revive that IC. Before they become rare!

    Got Macavity hanging in the garage, needs a deck refinish after being lent and left out to bleach. Classic Nethercott design.

    Back in college, one of the I-14 sailors bought one. I remember one Sunday afternoon when about a dozen of us gathered on the clubhouse widow's walk and watched him sail 10 feet, capsize, get righted, sail 10 feet, capsize...

    He offered to let any body else try it after he spent a couple of hours trying to get back to the dock. There were no takers!

    A further option is the Slurp which is a DC canoe based on a hard chine ply hull. Currently the sail at West Kirby SC (North West England) and because there are a number of them they get well matched IC racing of much less cost

    kits 1,250, full boat less than 10K.

    90th anniversary of the Moth, first built by Len Morris at my home yacht club.
    Our Vintage Wooden Dinghy Regatta is celebrating the event at the end of January and the boats attending range from modern foilers to Len's original Scow Moth ''Olive". Older scow moths are hard to come by and expensive.
