    I do feel very old when I see Charlie and Acapella. Almost 30 years. Gosh.

    The former Innovation Explorer has been given a few cruising amenities and is now known as Gforce. A video from the Team Vodafone crew who helped deliver the boat to Fiji.

    Russell's proa is definitely a very fast boat, and beautifully built (of course!). I have sailed it, it was drier than I expected.

    I was helming Golden Oldies, (see photo) in the Race to Alaska. Russell was the only one who could match our windward speed and pointing angle. No beach cat or monohull pointed as high or footed as fast as our two boats. After we had finished the wind moderated and went aft, thus the slow boats finished quicker than expected.

    Mind you, we did start 10 minutes late. Not our fault, a fellow competitor had problems leaving the dock and trapped us in until 10 mins before the start. If you watch this video you will see us leave the harbour at 1.47, and at the real start at 1.59 we are pointing the wrong way - halyard lock problems, which also affected Team Freeburd and others. We don't actually start until 2.09

    Then a proposed Remodel rebuild to look like, === as a charter vessel or fast cruising luxury Catamaran was the description from the designer.

    If so the cost must have been to great and decided to flick it. Had a few names. Was not a fast trip to Fiji Was achieving about 14.6 boat speed with 26.8 wind speed.

    The proposed refit was going to send her to 52 tons weight. Before the amenities you talk about she was 30 tons weight.

    For a boat her size the layout is shocking and the saloon [ By the helming wheel with a tent for minimal protection ] on a rainy cold 48 hrs well does not need bearing any thought.

    I wonder why they virtually showed all her interior except for the crew berths? Perhaps the cockpits on the leeward side are the crew berths.
