If you haven't seen it yet, the Naish Javelin has been resurrected (I thought it was dead for good). Images on Seabreeze here:

My first reaction was these looked somewhat ugly in the pictures both shape and looks, but then they seem to grow on you at least the shape :-)  . Maybe they will look smashing in the flesh.
The 24" and 280L Javelin might just make it for you and get you back into the fray one more year.
Javelin LE 14' x 26" 250L

KeNalu Mana 82/Blackfish Salish 71 & Andaman 82

Nah. Once you're in a well made surfski and you find its so easy to hold 13kph, you really forget why the hell you were trying to drag yourself anywhere at 9kph with a back breaking effort. ;D

Well you are speaking to an ardent downwinder so convinced for a long time that flat water races were not a lot of fun :-)

When I'm 80 they can wheel me out to get into sit-down sports thingies. Not before.
