  1. Cheers to those that replied. Including via email. I think I might try sailing my 16sq for a while and get my skills back up on a completely different platform and then start again on the infusion. Cheers
  2. I have a Hobie wave for sale. It is in excellent condition and has a spinnaker kit. It has beach rollers and a Jib. It needs a new tramp but I will fit one to it when it sells I just dont use it enough as I have 3 other yachts and they dont get enough attention either. It also has the back supports. Good little boat. I take the kids out on it. I also cart it around on my Box trailer
  3. Hey people. So I am getting flogged downwind and I want to do something about it. I have been dealing with this a while. I know that everyone is going to suggest settings. I feel I may have done everything and I have narrowed it down to the Nut behind the wheel. So what am I doing wrong? Firstly when I say I am being flogged I feel I might be quicker if I didnt put the kite up!! I have swapped boats with another club member for a race and he flogged me worse when he was on my boat as he did when he was on his. I dont feel its a weight issue we are 180KG combined. I am slick upwind and that is
  4. Heats 4,5,6 were cancelled due to almost all F18 Sailors in WA practicing for the Tornado Worlds.
  5. Ok Thanks Everyone for their input. Looks like the spreaders fixed it. I put them on and it immediately showed an improvement but in my rush I forgot to measure the diamond tension and sailed with it at about 32 which I think is a little light on. So the next weekend I cranked it up to 42 and the boat is now quick. The port starboard thing has gone. So the Fault was 1 spreader bending under load causing the mast to twist on Starboard Tack. It would have been twisting a certain amount on Port which actually made it super quick on port hence exaggerating the problem. I have raced 5 races with
  6. Thanks heaps for the advise. I do run pretty high rig tension and have done my measurements with the rig tension on and I measured to a point on the boat rather than the stay length. But for it to be a stay it must be stretching a foot as small deviations dont really make too much difference. I did slacken the diamond wires off and checked the mast and it looks pretty good I cant fault it even the smallest amount. I have re-tensioned the diamonds still all good. I have swapped out the skipper and I have had 3 different crews. All much the same although it was light when I swapped Skippers. I
  7. Hey People thanks for your help. Thanks Gareth for your words of wisdom My Infusion is slow at the moment but still floggs you haha Since putting this post up I have done the following. Checked Diamond tension left to right - all good Checked sidestays - Within 1mm length Checked Spreaders - Within 2mm angle spot on for height Swapped Centerboards left to right - No change Put a Brand New set of sails on - Marginally worse. Mast is dead straight. 1 thing to note is the lower the wind the less the problem. Also note that I get some of the performance back if I set the mast rotation on S
  8. Hey All. I have an Infusion and love it right up until I tack onto STBD Once on STBD Tack I get overtaken by Hobie 16's. They sail higher and faster than me. I liken the performance to sailing with a ton of weed on the centerboards. I have done heaps of Fault finding and I have come up with nothing that would make a significant difference. I have had 3 different people sail the boat all agreeing with me on the performance but no-one has an idea what it is. I can reduce the poor performance by rotating the mast to the downwind position. It doesnt seem to be very bad when its light and seems t
  9. 1st three heats were conducted on Sunday. Brett Burvill and Ryan Duffield Won all three heats in a Building Sea Breeze. We started the race in 10-12 Kts and finished in 18 Kts Great racing had by all.
  10. Hey Gareth The easiest solution is to line up against another Windrush with similar capabilities to you and see how much quicker you are. I would suspect that if Thomo or Ryan came down they would likely beat you even with no Spin. No offence to your capabilities. A good W14 is not much slower than H16 normally so I would expect that one with a Spin should be as quick. The 430's Yardstick is odd. I would have thought it would be less but time will tell. The big difference between the W14 and the 430 is the weight. The 430 is heavier. But if you have a look at the Nacra website it says the "Fas
