Seeing as the magazine states the new (rewritten) design guide is now available on the website, I thought I had better make sure it was!

I'm totally confused. Obviously this document is a great addition, but 'Design Guide' on the website still comes up with the 2002 version.

Firstly, thanks to those concerned for the update. As an owner of an NSM2, I looked up my design and was pleased to see the added comment about 3353 winning a Silver Tiller Meeting in 2006. I was, however, surprised still to see the comment "...many were built and are still being built." Is this still true? If not, it might prove a little misleading to newcomers to the fleet trying to check up on their intended second-hand purchase. Might it be possible to edit this comment, if it is indeed out of date?

Thanks for the link Mags, it does now point in the right direction. Would it be worth keeping some of the pages from the previous guide? There are good descriptions of some admittedly rare older designs (whatever happened to Baz?) and a wonderful piece of total anorak statistics giving all the designs with the numbers built and sail number range that someone must have spent days poring over the yearbook to produce - showing for example Heaven Sent 3511 (1993) - 3585 (2000) 3.

The version Mags has put online is actually not the final proof read one. There was, and i'm trying to find it and hoping it's not on my dead laptop (Backup your data!!), a subsequant one with the silly mistakes like the NSM II one removed.
