|These photos all show
grp Striders. There is very little difference between the grp and
wood versions. About 40 grp boats were built between 1984 and
Raised daggerboards can be clearly seen. This boat had an
optional forward netting beam and hatches over the front bunks.
|This was the first grp
Strider and was built for Mark Orr (now MD of Goss Challenges). Mark
is a very tough sailor and raced in the 3 Peaks Race (he broke the
record on one leg) as well as cruised many miles singlehanded (eg
Plymouth to Holland). He also came 3rd in the 1985 Micromultihull
World Championships |
|This Strider is really
being pushed to its limits (racing in a F7). We would recommend
reefing a bit more before it got this windy!!
