Here you are the new 49er FX, the new olimpic woman skiff for brazilian Olympic Games!
Advantages of the FX...
A proven platform
The 49er was a quantum leap in terms of high performance Olympic sailing. It still leads the field.
It’s a boat that captures the essence of true Olympic athleticism, based on a strict and well proven one design concept.
The FX rig is perfectly suited to the 49er hull. The performance is outstanding.
An existing supply of used 49er hulls available worldwide enables women teams to enter the class at a reduced cost.
Many MNA’s already have a number of 49er hulls.
The conversion from an existing 49er is simple and low cost. For around €5500 the new FX mast and sails can be put onto an existing 49er.
49er costs are well proven. There is no chance of large price increases once the true cost of manufacturing a boat to Olympic standard is discovered.
The strength and durability of the 49er is well proven. There will not be costs associated with replacing equipment as it goes through a development cycle.
