I keep seeing more earnest, helpless, odd entries to the R2AK race. People, if winning is of any interest, and from what I have seen, maybe it isn’t, you need something like this. A modern tri. And compared to the cookie cutter F-tris; its much wider overall for the same length; it will stay more level, spilling less wind. Round bilge will tack faster. No struts to douche the crew in waves. This was designed for Simmo before he dialed back. Add some oars and rock and roll.
