    Yo Dylan! Or any UK KTLer! Winsome small racers in the Crouch!

    Couple of questions for a Yank not always comprehending english English again (“bit thick” I guess you’d say)

    Noticed the smaller racers, at 3:24 into the film you say Royal Burnham 1-designs are the most comfortable 1-designs ever built. Look at how at ease this lot are… four up– four down anyway, and everyone looking comfortable” sorry I don’t get it– what does this mean? Only trhee on board and only two sails– Can somebody explain?

    At 3:50 you talk about the pointier Royal Corinthian one-designs are “imports from Cowes not designed for Essex at all.” Can you tell us what the difference is between Cowes and Essex is from a sailing viewpoint? I see from number 17, these boats fly spinnakers with the sail foot very high up. Why is that?

    Thanks, Ray KYC

    Burnham one designs and comfort. I chatted to a bloke who was sitting by one on a pontoon. he said that the benches and the side benches were perfectly formed for the human body. The three or four crew can sit down in the boat out of the wind and enjoy the sailing. When the wind chips up they have to lean out a bit – but they are big heavy boats and not dinghies.

    When the spinnaker goes up you need thtree people to fly it.

    The Burnhams have an upright bow designed to cut through the short east coast chop. The Corinthians with their shear and sterns are designe dto ride over a luch longer wave pattern – as you get on the south coast as it has come all the way from the Atlantic. So utterly different.

    – it is a dead run so generally you have the pole set high

    ‘4 up’ usually means having 4 people on board. Motorcyclists with a pillion passenger say there are ‘2 Up’. When Dylan says 4 down I think he means they are sitting down on the bottom boards of the boat! (Yes, I know this is a 4 year old thread!)
