    Hello. There is the Eventide Owners association website. Full size yachts.
    On that you can find a model of my Goosander just 27 inches loa. I also posted a picture of Ray's E24 yacht that he kindly sent me before the publication of the article in Model Boats magazine.

    I think the Eventide could be a very successful model. The full size ones sailed very well and were excellent small cruisers. A friend built one, many years ago and had quite a few years happy cruising up the East Coast and near continent.

    When the winds before the rain, soon you may make sail again, but when the rain's before the wind, tops'l sheets and halyards mind

    Not being completely familiar with finding my way around the forum yet and having just found a bunch of notification email responses to my post in my spam folder I want to apologize to those members I have not thanked for their advice.

    Ah! Chris you never mentioned the whole agenda here! We all thought this was an innocent race of model yachts, now the ugly truth is coming out.

    I say no more, but losing, I have found is not always a bad thing.

    Roy you are being silly now, no doubt your next idea will be a spinnaker gybe around the mark and that is where we all get very wet, no thanks ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    I console myself with being a gentleman and letting the lady win but would not let her hear me say that.

    Hi Chris it looks like you come in a very creditable second!

    What sorts the men out from the boys is actually a trip around the buoys. Layout a triangular course and go upwind on the first leg.

    Hello Martin. You ask the question old school or modern?

    Definitely old school. I like a bit of character. It's the old saying "They don't make them like they used to" ๐Ÿ˜

    Hi Colin H, The Eventide may be a bit too much to start with but by the same author is Wild Duck a litttle smaller featured a year or so back in Model Boats magazine. But the main thing is there is an excellent laser cut wood pack with most of what you need already done. Also on the Sarik web site there is a video of the build start to finish.
