    Default RG-65 Bench mark hull ?

    What rg65 hull design would be considered athe bench mark to compare to ?

    IOMS have the Brit Pop and US1Ms have the Venom.

    Would Pedeo Stiers Skinny be the boat to beat ?

    World wide ?
    Snot a common boat here in the U.S. Starting to see more, but also see a lot of boats designed in Europe.

    Don't agree - Little Best was designed by Paulo Stier and sailed by pedro Stier before he developed the Skinny.
    We also had some Goth XPs round here some years ago - was also slower than the Skinny in general.

    In this weekend's Southamerican RG65 Championship, from 15 top places, winner was Argon (Graham Bantock), second a Skinny (Pedro Stier) and third a Stinger (also Pedro Stier). Most of the half-top of the fleet were also Skinny. Will add link to results when they are officially available.

    Look at the attached results for this weekend Southamerican Championship... Too many Skinny's at the top - can't be just about skippers...
