F16 debut


The UK F16 catamaran class will also make their debut at the show with the F16 Viper taking centre stage on “Catamaran Island”.  

The F16 class association uses a similar box rule to that of its larger sister class, the F18. With a few modifications that suit lighter catamaran sailors, resulting in a great power to weight performance ratio.  

The F16 Viper on display is in great condition after a number of years sailing and a great buy for someone keen on double trapeze, gennaker and impressive performance.   

A 2016 event program is already in place alongside the F18 class and various F16 manufactures and UK dealer’s information will be available from the class stand over the two days along with technical and class support.  

So if you’re interested in finding out more about cat sailing, for more information on F16 sailing and to view the F16 Viper on display, make sure the UKCRA Catamaran Island (stand B12) is on your list of stands to visit while at the show!
