Topic : VIRTUAL REALITY by Joe Richards

This boat 3503 has just been aquired by my crew, any known info?  I believe Joe did race it a couple of times on the big island.

Jo was seen out in it when it was newish.
I remember it looking very spectacular - wide and flat. Rocketship downwind I should imagine - would realy benefit from a new size spinnaker.
Keep us posted on how it goes!

I remember seeing this boat when Joe first launched it at Parkstone one Easter.  It has a very low freeboard and I've not seen or heard of it since - will be good to see it out and about again.

Thanks Jude & Pat, due to the weather, lack of alternate storage and Guy looking at moving house it's been decided to leave her in Joe's store probably for a month or two. Well try & keep a photo diary going as & when she emergies from her slumber as you say shes a bit differant from the norm. all the best Barry.
