Winner of the 2016 Hobie 16 World Masters and winner of many Australian multihull championships, Rod Waterhouse, will compete in the Weta Trimaran class in the sailing regatta at the World Masters Games in Auckland, New Zealand in April next year. "I was excited to try the Weta after seeing videos online", said Rod. "And after a test of a boat loaned from Weta Sydney I knew I had to do the event." Auckland is the home of the New Zealand-designed Weta and over 1300 Wetas have been sold worldwide since it launched with a splash in 2009. "We're very pleased to see someone of Rod's calibre racing the Weta and hope we can encourage more of his contemporaries to take part", said Roger Kitchen, Director of Weta Marine. "The Australian Weta Team are shipping over a container of boats and there are options to have a new boat delivered in advance or at the Games". The fun, fast, easy Weta 4.4 Trimaran is the high-tech boat everyone can sail and it has recently been selected for Paralympic sailing events by the World Sailing organisation. Expertly made for maximum enjoyment and minimum fuss, whether you’re sailing all out and solo, mixing it up with the family or teaching the kids to sail, the Weta is simple to sail, surprisingly quick, and an absolute ton of fun.

Hi all, I brought a windie 14 cheap (in NZ sail No. 2093) that was in need for some TLC. Needed a new rudder (or two), some glass on the bottom of the hulls, work on the road trailer and a face lift would make it look a million bucks! But for the price it was still cheaper to buy it and invest in it and end up with a nice play boat. The sort of thing that I can come home use and put away, not really worrying too much about maintenance. However today while I rolled her over to work on the bottom of the hulls we herd something go clunk inside the Port hull. On closer inspection it feels that the Bulkheads inside the hull or what ever gives it structural support has become dislodged. The hull has a lot of movement (2-5cm) on both sides, compared to the other hull which is rather ridged. So my question is this; does anyone have any information of the layout of the internals inside the hull and how much effort/time and money is required to fix it? At this point I am leaning toward cutting my losses and buying a 'not so big project' or another class of boat. Any advise? Is it worth giving this boat another breath of life... or parting it out? Many Thanks, James.
