Hi Guys,

 

New to this site...I own Elliott 1050 "Basic Instinct" and have had her for about 6 years.  Fantastic boat!  Originally was bought by previous local SF owner in 1996 in NZ and shipped to San Francisco.  I race her a lot and sail her even more.  She has always been kept pristine...and has some upgrades like the blade keel and a flat top main...

 

I am always looking to make her faster, but with none here in the US...finding info and tips is difficult.  I am in the process of buying new sails...and would be great to talk with those who have been most successful with like boat in NZ. 

 

Any idea on who in NZ would chat with me about Elliott 1050 advice?

 

Thx, Memo

Hey Memo, most 1050s raced in NZ now have square top mains, and bulb keels.
