I looked into the boats to enter the Single
Handed Transpac. Cost was just too much, something over 50 boat units to buyt and more to outfit. Virtually nothing in the used market on this side of the Atlantic.
Neat idea for off the wind racing
as they'll sail way way above there water
line length if you can get them up on a plane. Believe there were one or two in this years SHTP. The 2014 race
was supposed to have a class of the Mini's but everyone that had expressed an interest in doing the sail dropped out. Don't remember if any of mini's actually made the sail. Might look at the SHTP website and see if any Mini's made the sail.
Building a boat that small shouldn't be that much of a project
, time or money
wise. Were you going for the Experimental division or the stock boat's assuming there are approved plans.
