I think they'd do it if they had the man power Gary. I too have ordered actual publications from them for very little money. The real thing sitting on the shelves waiting to be sent out from the 60s and 70s....Obviously some issues are sold out but copies can be ordered.

I've got a pile of them, Cav, and they are really excellent. If you try to find their larger issues, like the Foiler book; you pay real money from Amazon or Abebooks - because there are so few examples around. Maybe AYRS should consider reprints ... or putting selected pamphlets together in larger editions.

These videos from Proafile have been posted up before and cover the New York - Bermuda race from one of the particapants perspective. If you haven't allready seen them they are worth a look. Historic multihulls such as the Lock Crowther Kraken 40 Ringo (had Oldsailor7 onboard!) and the Dick Newick design Rogue Wave make an appearance.

HYDROFOIL CRUISER--David Keiper's Williwaw, Edited by Ray Vellinga

This is wild!


During the early 1970s, David Keiper sailed his hydrofoil trimaran, Williwaw 20,000 miles throughout the South Pacific.

I met Dave Keiper when he sailed into Auckland and was invited aboard Williwaw to have a look at the foils and how they worked; there's my photograph of Williwaw, foils folded, at the beginning of this thread. He sailed the foiler on a Regatta day; on Drumbeat we were reaching up the Waitemata a hundred metres apart and when the gusts came over the city, Williwaw instantly accelerated away from us ... but we would catch up when the gusts eased. We were impressed - but not so much with the sprint/slow situation. The foils worked really well - but obviously dragged at lower wind speeds.

Cool video of a cool tri, had to laugh when it said FAST 90 miles in 6 days, gotta be a typo

Should it be 900 miles in 6 days? or 90 miles in 6 hours? any guesses

Article by John Shuttleworth on Brittany Ferries GB trimaran has some interesting discussion on the technical merits of different design elements.

Generation F begins: Williwaw on video

Saw the previous posting-apparently it has been removed. Try this, last post today: Great Multihull Video
Extraordinary video that is the first I've ever seen!

This Pic was taken 41 years ago.
It's clean lines and excellent performance would not disgrace any of todays modern small trimarans.

Agreed OS&, Lock had the eye.

OS-7 & Gary - SUPA pics - @ 72 yrs young - they sure do bring back a very special space in time. Grand days for sure.

As I can 'blow-up' (guess these days I should use - expand instead - or I might end up in jail) the pics to 400 times mag. - I was just wondering who that - long gangly chap was that was stretched-out on the windward hull - in your picture Gary. That's a very familiar 'lay-back/ posture - my minds-eye seems to recall.

Thanks to both of you for sharing such valuable times. Ciao, james

Gavin Dagley, who used to sail with me on Supplejack, sent from Melbourne, these old Bay of Islands and Northern coast shots: Robin Chamberlain's trimaran Cloud, Tony Lawson's Crowther 40 Whiplash - and on board SJ.
